    Seagull RC paper

    this is just mediocre paper, not really great for printing. Cheap and I can see why.

          Drys a little darker so just take 10 percent off the exposure time.

                    I use Ilford all the time but was looking for something less expensive for my test prints / gifts for people I did not love as much. I tried out this Oriental paper and it has worked really really well. The tonal range and depth is fantastic. I will definitely buy more once this box runs out.

                          As a photography student, I was looking for a reasonably priced paper that performs well. This completely fit the bill. I know it's not the best paper out there, but for my budget it performs amazingly well. Next time I need paper I'm buying this again.

                                the reason why i purchase the seagull vc it was cheaper than ilford rc paper. has similar qualities as ilford. however its hard to tell which sides had resin coating on it.
