    Although this paper is just a little light for greeting cards (my opinion of course), it prints well enough that I have used it for several years without a problem.

    caveat...I let my wife do the folding! :(

        I use this Double Sided Matte Paper by Epson pimarily for printing greeting cards where I need to print on both sides of the paper. I has worked out well for many years now and I strongly recommend this paper.
        We receive many compliments from our friends about how beautiful the cards look.

        I use this product for my digital photography class. The best part about it is probably the price. I'd become accustomed to buying Ilford paper for film photography, so this is a nice change. The only thing about the paper that isn't as great as it's glossy counterpart is that the colors do not come out as saturated as on screen before printing.

          This is a perfect paper for making note cards to send to clients. Image quality is excellent and the double sided surface means that once it's folded the inside and outside are the same color. You just have to be picky about what pen to use to write your notes

            I am temporarily printing on a cheap 4-in-1 Epson photo printer. It would not accept the non-Epson matte paper that I'd purchased elsewhere. The Epson brand works perfectly well in this printer. I am happy.

              To get excellent color of both sides of Note, Gift, Thank You, and Holiday cards, this paper is ideal. Useable for full-sheet folded, and half-sheet folded cards. You can print on both sides whether you have a printer capable of duplex-printing or not.

              I have bought this paper for several years and still get compliments on the quality of my personal cards.

                Comments about Epson Double Sided Matte Paper 8.5x11" - 50 Sheets:

                This paper yields outstanding colors on both sides which makes it perfect for colorful images and text. You can layout two greeting cards per sheet, then after printing both sides you cut them apart across the 8.5" dimension. It helps to have an image manipulation program, such as Photoshop Elements, to provide layout guides and rotate the sheet for 'upside down' text.

                First print the side which uses the least ink to keep the sheet as flat as possible for the second pass through the printer. Practice with letter paper to be sure you have everything right side up on the inside and outside of the finished card. Use a paper knife or rotary cutter to separate the two finished cards. Fold each card in half, and they are a perfect fit in Invitation Envelopes [4-3/8" x 5-3/4"]. You can print addresses directly on the envelopes with your printer to show you care enough to do a thorough job. Again, cut some letter paper to envelope size to make sure you have the addresses positioned properly. To produce one or a few addressed envelopes, sometimes it is easier use Photoshop to define the envelope size and place the addresses, then print envelope(s)from Photoshop.

                Images of both sides of a finished sheet are included here, and helpful positioning guides are shown.

                    This paper is a good value from Epson. I have used it for years. My Calendars have a professional art look to them that I want to display my underwater photos. I noticed Epson has improved the paper by making it slightly heavier. This is good for the feel of the paper. However the heavier stock is causing my printer to jam or misfeed. This is not good as it wastes paper and expensive ink. I think most of the problem is due to the printer being old and has printed a lot of paper. I plan to get a new printer soon and that should take care of the problem.

                      I used this paper to create a double sided booklet for my photographs and it really didn't look great for color. All my vibrant images looked dull, but I have seen it used for black and white images and I strongly recommend it for black and white photographs.

                        Comments about Epson Double Sided Matte Paper 8.5x11" - 50 Sheets:

                        I use the Epson Double Sided Matte Paper to print all my blank art cards, and or Greeting cards. The difference between single sided and double sided is the surface. What i mean is if you only have a single sided, you fold it in half like a greeting card. Then the inside is slightly duller than the outside. This is why i only use the double sided for my art cards. This paper is thick like a greeting card. The surface is so smooth. The print quality is better than any of the glossy papers. If you print solid black, it is deeper and darker black than any other paper!

                        However this paper is not as archival and not waterproof(because it is a paper and not a glossy paper).

                          We use this paper to bring images of our products for clients and to make one off promotional booklets. We think it is a pretty good deal for the quality.

                          I have been using Epson's double-sided matte for years in books wee self-publish in limited editions of 125 each. Over the years the paper, when used with our Epson Stylus Pro 4880 printer, has been consistent and never disappoints. Not perfect, but consistent and dependable.

                            I am a photographer and this is my paper of choice for any marketing and pricing materials. Heavyweight enough that it feels nice - light enough that it does not eat the storage space too quickly :) Very good color and detail.
