Epson Somerset

Lovely paper for printing watercolors on!

Lovely paper for printing watercolors on!


The only paper I use


from Cedar Park, TX  -  Frequent User

I have experimented with several papers, but always come back to Epson Somerset Velvet. For me it handles low contrast, almost pastel type images as well as vibrant, almost oversaturated colors. I print exclusively on an Epson 7800 Pro with Matte Black ink.


Good product


from Athens, GA  -  Frequent User

Used for making digital prints of watercolors. Nice look, similar to original piece of art. Finding the right softness of pencil to hand sign prints important. Overall a lovely paper.

Fabulous product. The only paper I will use for art reproductions


Perfect for Me


from Charleston SC  -  Frequent User

I use Somerset Velvet for virtually all prints on my Epson 7800 - matte black ink of course. I could not be happier. Every now an then I experiment with other papers, but always come back to Somerset Velvet. It does well on low contrast images as well has high contrast images with intense color. I alway know what I am going to get when printing on Somerset Velvet.
