This paper is as good as it gets for matte paper. I print my fine art with it and get a positive response from everyone who sees it. Prints beautifully and thick stock looks and feels like quality in your hands. The only negative thing I have to say is about the shipping from Adorama. I have had multiple occasions when the paper arrives bent/dented at the edges. They need to figure out a way to more safely ship their papers. I have had this issue on the large 44" roll, the 24" roll and at times with the 13"x19" sheets.
We use this paper everyday to print for artists and photographers. There is no paper more popular in our print shop. The popularity is solely due to the image quality it produces.
I've been using this paper for years. Good standby.
