This is a very good RC paper for color prints. The surface has enough gloss for high contrast and saturation, but not so much as to annoy with excessive reflections. I cut some of the sheets in half, resulting in 9 1/2 x 13 sheets for printing uncropped 8 x 12s

For my taste the paper color is too cool for B&W. The 240 gsm weight and 10 mil thickness are fine for smaller prints, but they make for a somewhat limp sheet at 13" by 19" (Super B). You can buy heavier papers but at a higher price.
Overall this mid-priced paper is suitable for a wide range of images. Epson's consistent quality and excellent resealable packaging make this good-value product my workhorse paper.

After comparing the hard copies printed with this paper and some fine art paper (double the price), I found that what I paid for what I bought.

Anyway the quality is still not bad with the price. If you want the best, think about the fine art papers.

    This paper has a great surface that provides just a touch of texture to the print. The colors are true and vibrant. It is my go-to paper for images that I am going to show in contests.

      Comments about Epson Ultra Premium Luster Photo Paper (13x19", 50 Sheets):

      I recently took down a show of framed prints that had been up for 3 months and was shocked to find many of them had "ghosting." Not sure what it was, I did some web research and it turns out unless you CURE the prints—Epson suggest at least 24 hours with sheets of plain paper between the prints—the result can be disastrous. The ink volatiles continue to evaporate and then condense between the print (RC paper is relatively nonabsorbent) and the glass. Further research suggests that even when following the Epson recommended curing procedure (NOT packaged in the paper!), trouble will probably result. I'm now faced with reprinting on a different (non-RC) paper and trying to clean the crude off the expensive non-glare glass. Has no one else had this problem?!?!

        Great printing on Epson WF-7520 - Tried other paper and the results were bad. Epson suggested to use this paper and although expensive it is worth the price considering the quality of the print.

                                  I use Ultra Premium Luster Photo Paper in 13"X19" sheets to print my largest enlargements for matting and framing. I like the surface texture, brightness, and color renditions. The finished prints are more scratch resistant than glossy finish papers.

                                    As photo student in college, it is inevitable that lots of monies will go into professional photo paper and cost of ink. I am absolutely glad I bought this packet at such a low price compare to my school's store. Would definitely order more when my first pack is running low. Thanks B&H for fast delivery as well!
