I never used the Metallic inkjet paper, but the Metallic color paper (RA-4) had a fun metallic look. Great for shiny objects like cars. I even made a few prints from an ice hockey game. I wish I could describe it better, but I can't. The bad news is that after one box, I had no urge to buy more. It was fun, but the fun was short lived. It might still be available in rolls.
