Great hard super smooth matte surface

This is the best matte paper surface you can get and is comparable to the superb Hahnemuhle Natural Art Duo at 256 gsm, which is a very expensive paper. This has the same great surface, in a lighter weight (215), and is less than half the price. It's got a super hard and super smooth finish. The hand is like soft silk, but its hardness makes for great printing on my Epson Artisan 50 printer. I use it mainly for greeting cards, because it has an elegant surface and great feel in the hand.

This is the best matte paper surface you can get and is comparable to the superb Hahnemuhle Natural Art Duo at 256 gsm, which is a very expensive paper. This has the same great surface, in a lighter weight (215), and is less than half the price. It's got a super hard and super smooth finish. The hand is like soft silk, but its hardness makes for great printing on my Epson Artisan 50 printer. I use it mainly for greeting cards, because it has an elegant surface and great feel in the hand. But I also do color art illustrations scanned from books (Epson V750 pro scanner with descreener) with great success. The 8x10 size is perfect for 4.5 x 6.25 inch greeting cards. The 215 gsm weight is good for this size card. I also buy the 8.5 x 11 inch size for 5x7 greeting cards. The only con is they shrink wrap the paper too tightly and it produces curl. I buy enough ahead of time to leave it under a heavy weight for two weeks before use. I've written to the company and asked them to stop the shrink wrapping, as it's unnecessary and creates a problem. The 8.5 x 11 is shrinked wrapped, too, but the curl is less problematic. But here's the thing -- you can't get a hard super smooth matte surface like this, unless you buy the expensive Hahnumuhle Natural Art Duo 256 gsm. Red River's double sided Polar Matte 60 used to have a beautiful quality surface like this, but the mill changed the formula on them, and now they have a rougher matte like everybody else. Right now, only Inkpress and Hahnemuhle have this great surface. For that reason, I will buy it and deal with the curl, as there is no better paper anywhere near the price. I've also asked the company to make this same paper in a 250 or 260 weight, which no doubt would be cheaper than the Hahnemuhle, and such a weight is ideal for fine art. If you have an Epson Artisan 50 printer, you'll get great results with this paper. Use the Enhanced Matte setting, photo quality.

Inkpress Duo Matte 80 Inkjet 12x12

This is a wonderful, quality product. I use this in my photography album business. I print on both sides with my Epson printer.

Okay!

from louisiana  -  Infrequent User

I use 12x12 paper for digital scrapbooking. I have used Epson in the past, even ordered it from Adorama at one time. It is no longer available, so I tried Inkpress. It is usable, but doesn't compare to the quality of the other paper I used. It is reasonably priced though.

Good archival matte paper

By

from NYC

I used this paper to produce exhibition quality 11x14 prints from digital files. The results were better than expected. The paper produces rich images with great color reproduction, and it ran through my Epson R3000 with no problems. Great product for the money, and the paper is acid free for archival use.

Great for portraits/headshots!

By

from Philly Area  -  Frequent User

I am using this paper to make headshot prints for actors. I love that their resumes and additional photos can be printed on the reverse side. It's difficult to find a matte photo paper that will stand up to a luster or gloss finish, but this one does better than the many others I've tried. With some portraits I will up the contrast a bit when I print; others don't need tweaking at all. I am printing with the Canon Pixma Pro-100, using the Canon ICC profiles as recommended by Inkpress. Great stuff!

Excellent photp paper for color or b&w

from Greenville, SC  -  Frequent User

I use this paper for color and b&w printing. I reduce the saturation a bit on my printer settings when using. Prints come out sharp. Nice matte paper.

Double-sided goodie

By

from Petaluma, CA  -  Frequent User

I use this to make 12-month desktop calendars, with picture on one side and months on the other featuring names of holiday and commemorative dates. Among sizes available in the market, 5x7 is perfect - fonts on 4x6 would be too small. The paper is 12 mils thick and there's no ink bleedthrough. The prints are as good as my Canon iP4500 can produce. ICC profiles recommended by manufacturer are those native to Canon printers. Paper can be fed via cassette tray, but I prefer the straighter path from the rear tray. The coating on the paper makes the feed roller on my printer slippery after a few sheets, so it must be cleaned with a damp cloth or paper towel, otherwise printer may start printing before the paper is properly picked up. No jams, only misregistered prints. The sheets often come with a slight curvature; the latest batch looks better than from previous years.

Really awesome

By

from FL  -  Quality Oriented

Wow this paper is fantastic! I have been using Epson's Ultra Premium Matte paper for the past 2 years with my Epson R2000 printer and have always been happy with it...but I decided to try out this paper just to compare and it blows Epson's paper away!! It's MUCH brighter than Epson's paper and a bit heavier (which is why I wanted to try another brand). It costs a more than Epson but to me the difference in the prints is worth the cost. The fact that it's double-sided is awesome too. I use this for my business of graphic designs. I highly recommend!!

Shopper  Does this paper print well with the canon pro 100?
joseph b  I have a canon pixma & it does ok, however you cannot use this paper to attach to something else as glue doesn't affix well to the double-sided paper. Hope this helps
