What is 17×25 inkjet paper for anyway?
Red River Paper offers the largest selection of professional quality inkjet papers in the 17″ x 25″ sheet size. This includes:
- 17×25 Glossy
- 17×25 Satin Luster
- 17×25 Matte
- 17×25 Photo Metallic
- 17×25 Fine Art Paper
We offer 17×25 as a service to those wanting to print full 16″ x 24″ images. Specifically, photographers with full frame dSRL cameras have images captured with a 2:3 aspect ratio. This yields images with native sizes such as 4×6, 8×12, and 16×24. Owners of wide format printers such as the Epson 3880, Canon iPF6350, Epson 4900, HP Z3100, Canon iPF5100, and others can take advantage of the 17×25 sheets for full 16×24 printing projects.
So why not just 16×24? Inkjet printers only allow certain sizes to be borderless. A custom size, like 16×24, cannot be set to print without borders. The result would be a print that is less than 16″ x 24″. If you want a true, uncropped 2:3 ratio 16×24, you must use a larger size like 17×25.
