    I bought a pack of this paper because it has a great reputation, and man, I wasn't disappointed! My style has always been high gloss and bright colors, but with this paper I've discovered a more subtle style I didn't know I had in me.

    It produces the most vivid colors and highest contrast of any matte paper I've tried.

    Great for black and white images.

    Durable - No issues with loose fibers causing white spots in the finished image - something I've experienced with cotton rag papers.

    Still it's matte, so it's somewhat susceptible to surface scuffs. More durable than Hahnemuhle Photo Rag, but not as scuff-resistant as Epson Premium Luster.

    I've been using Epson Velvet Fine Art for about 5 years for prints in black and white. The quality has always been excellent. The paper was very toothy, so embedded dust was a problem. Now it is not only toothy, but has a patterned texture which, to my mind, detracts from the printed image.

        We use Velvet fine art by Epson for most of our printing. it is a good heavy paper with a nice finish. The only downside is that it can damage very easy.

            I print images with highly saturated colors and solid black areas. This paper is the best I have found for this purpose. I tested many different papers before choosing Velvet Fine Art. This paper does prints the richest blacks.

                      I have searched for a product as good as this one (for less money, of course), and have not been able to find it. My fine art prints look identical to ones done professionally. This is the best product I have found.

                              B&H treats every shipment of Epson paper like they are shipping a fragile vase. I never receive bent or punctured boxes of material because they are so fastidious about their packing. The paper itself is my #1 choice for printing on the Epson 3800/3880 series printers.

                                            I bought this paper for a digital printmaking class, and it works very well for my projects. The color saturation is almost unreal and the amount of detail I get out of my prints is phenomenal. One complaint I have is the price, yet I'd still say it's worth the money. I just wish it didn't cost so much.

                                                I've tried various matte textured archival inkjet papers and this is my favorite. It's the same as Somerset Velvet printmaking paper, except that it's prepared to accept Epson Ultrachrome inks. It doesn't chip or show fingerprints easily, which are two important features in its favor compared to other matte textured papers, and is reasonably priced compared to those others. However, color management is a little more challenging than with glossy paper.

                                                  I was kind of leary purchasing the Velvet ink jet paper, but to my surprise, the prints came out beautiful. Very rich in color. Glad I made the purchase.

                                                    This paper has great texture. Deep rich colors!
                                                    The challenge is knowing which side of the paper to print on. One side is slightly smoother than the other the different is very small.

                                                        Gives the look of a painting. Colors are very true.
