      For traditional b&w silver photography, I have long printed on a glossy paper dried on fiberglass screens. When I put the Ultra Premium Luster side by side with my traditional print, the surfaces looked almost exactly the same.

        I print photographs that I work from only on this paper. It is high quality. The color reproduction is brilliant. I don't have anything great no to say about it except that it is pricey, but you get what you pay for.

          I have been doing instant printing for Santa photos for over 7 years. This is the only paper that I will use for Santa photos. The colors jump off the page, and the quality of the paper gives the customers the feeling of an expensive photo.

              I use the Epson luster for most general purpose printing. It looks and feels like what the average person thinks of as "photo paper," and it's very resistant to finger prints. I have ordered from various online companies, but B&H is by far the best in packaging photo paper to prevent damage in shipping.

              Ultra Premium Luster is my most used paper for both color and B&W prints on the Epson Stylus Pro 3880. It has the look and feel of an RC coated photographic paper. It yields beautiful neutral B&W prints using the Epson Advanced B&W mode with H+3 and V+3 set in the Color Control Dialog as suggested by R. Mac Holbert. When fine art exhibition prints are required I can proof on this paper then get a perfect print on Epson Exhibition Fiber with H+1 and V+3 set in Color Controls.

                    I use this this paper for all but my most critical prints. In most cases, it very closely produces the results I get wit genuine Epson Premium papers. I seem to experience more "banding" with this paper as opposed to Epson paper.

                          This is "the standard" for luster photo paper. While others come close, this is the one that everyone should be using. Great color, great depth and at a nice weight and price. Definitely recommend this to anyone who prints their own photos.

                            This is a great paper that shows a slight gloss feel without having a full gloss shine. I work at an art college & this paper is one of the most in demand we use, I think that speaks for itself.

                                    This is great paper for proofing your prints for fine art. There is better paper, but I usually use this for my first test print. Great quality for the price

                                        I'm using it with an Epson R3000 printer and Cone inks [*]. The paper is between matte and glossy, with a very fine texture. It has a heavy (polyester) feel to it like RC photo paper. On another note, I actually went to B&H to look at different papers; place is HUGE! The salesman in the papers department (no kidding) was extremely knowledgable and polite. (It was a real surprise, unlike a lot of other stores of that type.)

                                          I plan to produce 500 perfect photos to sell and the UPPP Luster is the paper and finish by choice! Have tried others and there is no comparison. Eye -popping color and beautiful luster sheen finish creates a work of art. No problems with bleeding or paper jams. Sturdy paper thickness , good value for your dollar. Adheres to adhesive materials and holds strong. Will cut easily with paper cutter or scissors. I have only printed color photos so far, but intend to print up black & white in the future. A good photo paper for presentations in the private sectors or law enforcement.Paper is encased in cardboard container box, not in flimsy paper wrap. Easy to store, remember only pull out what you plan to use and keep remaining paper in container box.

                                            I have been using Epson Ultra Premium Luster paper for years with Epson's Ultra Chrome K3 Inks. I love the look and feel of the paper and the wonderful rendition of colors and details that this paper provides. I have done my own testing of this paper is full sun light and find that it is amazingly fade resistant. As I sell my prints commercially, I want the finest product for my customers, I feel that this paper more than fits the bill. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this paper to a friend.
