        Comments about Ilford Galerie Smooth Pearl Paper for Inkjet Printers (11 x 17", 50 Sheets):

        I have used this paper for several years, in all cut sheet formats from 4x6 up to 13x19, in my Canon 5000 Pro. I've always been very pleased with the results -- the paper is semi-gloss; its finish resists fingerprints and other marks, and also inhibits distracting surface reflections. Image crispness seems very good to me -- the print option to select is "High resolution paper"; and the paper's weight is extremely pleasing, with a good, solid feel. The paper is not inexpensive, but in my view it's very well worth the price.

                          I have mostly used 100% rag matte paper in the past but decided to give this paper a try. this paper is fairly heavy weight which I like. The best feature is the brilliant color with very accurate print making with their excellent profile available on their website at no cost. They have the profile on this paper for a wide variety of printers. The print is dry when it emerges from the printer, no smearing. Using their profile the print looks just like the lcd screen, a big asset.

                            This paper has a surface that appears to be the same as the old Silk surface paper I used in the darkroom. It works excellently with my Epson R1900 printer, comes out absolutely dry and has a brilliance which is just like glossy, but more elegant.

                              I don't have the best printer in the world, and this paper allows me to make better prints than I have in the past. The size is not the thing that makes the paper superior, it is the pearl texture that others have mentioned. It removes that sheen from the photo and adds depth to the final print.

                              The only thing I have to say that is bad about this is that you want to print more photos, and at a little more than a dollar a sheet that can get pretty expensive pretty quickly,

                                I use the Galerie Smooth Pearl paper for portraits shot both in my studio and in outdoor environments. The results have been outstanding and customers have loved the color and texture. Also there are no worries about fingerprints either.

                                  Comments about Ilford Galerie Smooth Pearl Paper for Inkjet Printers (11 x 17", 50 Sheets):

                                  This paper has the textural quality of the old fiber based classic pearl black and white papers. The Smooth Pearl paper has a real sense of elegance.

                                      This paper gives out amazing print quality. Its less reflective than any of the other photo paper brands i've used.

                                            The Galerie paper works beautifully on my Epson printer and comes in sizes not found in the Epson line. 11 X 17 is a perfect size paper for the not so large prints.

                                              This paper gives a matte appearance rich in color. I purchase 8.5X11; 11X17, and 13X10. Good buy at B&H.

                                                  Use this paper for frameable photos and photos that may be handled a lot.
                                                  The print quality equals super premium gloss paper in colors and clarity.
                                                  I don't have to put gloves on to handle it -- hard to scratch and dries instantly.
                                                  NOTHING bad to say about it!

                                                    I use it to print out all my snap shots. This paper has a great tonal range and nice surface. I would highly recommend this paper for most of photo printing purposes!
