    I just used it today for my photography class, we were making photograms. The paper has a superb glossy finish and came wrapped in a thick black plastic envelope. The photos came out nice and the sheets I still have left I slipped in the black envelope and took home. Nothing negative about my experience. Will buy again.

          It's not as thick as the Ilford, but it's cheaper. It printed well in the darkroom. I had good results.

                  Nothing bad to say about this paper, good consistent stuff, nice tones and the paper quality is stout, not flimsy whatsoever. The price is not bad either in comparison with other paper in it's class. As always, there is better paper out there and opinions will always vary, but I'm sure most folks who use it will be overall satisfied.

                    I use this paper in the darkroom, obviously. I am new to the darkroom, but this paper makes it easy for me to print what I need easily, and efficiently. I had never printed earlier this week, I went in with one, maybe two printable negatives. With the help of a seasoned professional, the image came out clear, and this paper was undoubted a BIG factor in the process. That, and natural talent from yours truly. Ahem.

                      I'm in a film class in school and I needed to get an affordable pack of paper to finish up printing all of my final shots from this semester. This was perfect, all my photos came out great.
