    This paper has a little gloss but not the sharp, inexpensive shine of most glossy photo papers. This paper captures subtle colors. It has a quality feel and lasts well with the Epson pigment dye inks. We live in the Northeast where the pollution can cause print colors to decay to magenta within months. I've had this happen and it is embarassing. The Premium Semi-Gloss paper lasts more than a year before a bit of color change sets in on an exposed print. Actually, it lasts the best of several photo papers we have tried; that's why I just bought 10 packs.

    After printing a few pictures with this paper and compared to full glossy. Go with full glossy. I hear some people may think that glossy is not fully professional look. I don't understand that.
    It's all a matter of personal subjective preference.
    Reason for my decision is color reproduction, which in this case has nothing to do with paper finish. The color reproduction of the glossy paper is more vibrant and more accurate. The semigloss color rendering is a little more dull and honestly a little less accurate than other Epson papers. I had to try different ICC profiles to confirm it wasn't my mistake. This paper is rated 4 stars by Epson, I have tried many other papers from Epson rated at 4 and 5 stars. This one should be rated 3 stars. However, I have to emphasize again that all these judgements are always considered subjective and are exclusive of my personal preference. Other people may favor this over other paper finish. The best way to find out, buy a small box of either 4x6 or 5x7, try it yourself and make your own decision.

      I use this to print my photographs on after scanning, mostly just contact sheets. The paper is high quality and very useful. The semi-gloss has a nice shine to it, but not too shiny. The image is still very easy to see while being very presentable.

          I design prototypes and presentations and I simply love this paper, it brings vibrance to my designs, I use it all the time, and the price I received through B&H is less than any other retailer I have found so far. It is a win win!

            I have been using this paper for most all of my school project photos and I couldn't be happier. I consistently get good results. Color photos and B/W always turn out great. I have been using this paper on a Epson R2880 and have had great results. Yes I can recommend to all. I also recommend B&H Photo. They deliver on there products and service. I have purchased all sorts of photography related equipment and supplies and Im totally satisfied.

                                  I usually prefer Matte finishes but this was a nice change of pace...

                                    We used the photo paper to print out digital caricatures at an event and they all came out looking great. No smudging and the fantastic, clear quality.

                                      I'm a Photography student at Marlboro college and I use Epson Semi-Gloss for all of my test and final printing. It's a nice paper and I would recommend it to students. My only qualm with it is that you have to handle it pretty gently or it'll get dimples.

                                        Using for college projects. Hope to save money, time and the headaches of others trying to print your work. Bought Epson photo paper because of history of being high quality product. So far so good...

                                          Not high quality rag but easy handling
