    I have printed around a hundred photos on this wonderful archival paper ( and a top professional printer here who prints for many artists and photographers - and who prints very large prints for me- likes it as well) Also, I have printed many, many dozens of prints on the Super B larger size Silver Rag, too, and have been extremely pleased with it. The printed results are similar to standard, non- archival premium glossy photo paper in terms of richness, the only difference being that the results are on the slightly warm side. (and, of course, that this is high quality, archival paper!)
    I highly recommend this paper- it's well worth the expense!

    It's a fine paper for printing color or b/w...it tends to have warm tone, not great for certain b/w images. but, the main problem w/ this paper is, it will curl on the coated side...Epson 3800 paper feed is very sensitive, so feeding this Silver Rag paper can be very frustrating and darn right annoying. To solve this issue, I curl the paper in opposite direction and cross my fingers that it will take...I don't think, I will buy another due to frustration over result.

    Some Caveats

    By James

    from Phoenix, AZ

    Verified Buyer

    Comments about Museo Silver Rag Paper - 8.5x11" - 25 Sheets:

    Curls a fair amount, at least here in Phoenix. I have to manually bend each sheet back to relative flatness before loading it into the printer, which will keep it flat enough for long enough to print on, but won't prevent the slow resumption of its curl after printing. If that's a problem for you, consider Canson Infinity Platine Fibre Rag. It doesn't curl and is broadly similar to Silver Rag (heavyweight, acid-free, OBA-free, luster surface), though more neutral in tone--Silver Rag is warm enough to noticeably inflect the hues of a color print.

    The sheets also have a not-small probability of containing a pinprick brown dot somewhere on the printing side, which means you get to try to figure out how to print around the imperfection so that it doesn't show in the print. And then even when you win the no-brown-dots lottery for a given sheet, there is an also not-small probability that a speck of the printing surface will flake off after printing, so that your evasion of the brown dots ends with having a white dot instead. These issues present way too frequently for a paper so expensive.

    However, when the curl isn't a problem and your print is speckless, and when the warm tone suits the image, the results are very good. But I'd recommend anyone considering Silver Rag also look at Canson's IPFR.

          This is by far my favorite paper. I print for several artists who are very picky about their reproductions, they are very happy with the surface of this paper, and the color tonalities I am able to achieve are far superior to any other paper I use.

                As a long time warmtone black & white darkroom printer, I was looking for an inkjet paper surface that had the same look. I tried many different brands a couple of years ago. Museo Silver Rag looked the best to me with a Epson 4800 printer. The slightly warm paper base looks great with sepia tone B&W images.
                I would not be surprised if there are newer and possibly more cost effective papers available now. But I will stick with what works best for me at present.
                Be sure to use the Museo paper/printer profile and follow the instructions (available on their website) to get you through the printer dialogs.

                    I've been looking for a semi-gloss paper to print my black & white infrared images and I've found it here. After downloading the appropriate profile from the Museo site and a little pre-print tweaking I was able to get images that pop with deep blacks, bright whites and accurate mid tones. My favorite is Museo's Max matte paper, but some images benefit by a more glossy look. The feel is great too, very thick and heavy. Plus, according to the company, produced with no optical brighteners found in cheaper paper. Kudos Museo!

                        I print on the Epson 3800 and the paper is truly the closest I have found to darkroom fiber paper. The surface is not high gloss which tends to make the paper look like RC. This paper does have a bit of a curl which when going through the printer, catches on the print heads and smudges on the corners.

                          Great paper with a slight warm tone. Rendition is awe inspiring. Unfortunately has trouble with my HP printer. The paper seems to be too heavy to feed, be sure you can hand feed the paper if necessary.

                            Prints from my Epson R-2400 have terrific color fidelity and richness. Finish is amazing. While considered a glossy finished paper, it really isn't a truly glossy finish, it has more of a sheen to the finish that has a high quality appearance that needs to be seen to be described. Definitely a fine-art photographic paper. Equally great for color or black and white photographic imagery. One of the best papers I've used.

                              I keep coming back to this paper again and again, forgetting how fantastic it is! I have used the silver rag for 3 shows and multiple print sells and could not be happier. The quality is gorgeous and prints stunning black and white, and to my surprise, color photographs. Over the course of printing my last show, I think I commented on the beauty of the paper everytime it came out of the printer.

                              Will continue to use this paper in the future and would recommend it to anyone!

                                Used this small size to test paper - ultimately got
                                larger sheets, roll of same. Looks very good. Prints well through Lightroom with Museo ICC profiles downloaded and specified.

                                        It's a fine paper for printing color or b/w...it tends to have warm tone, not great for certain b/w images. but, the main problem w/ this paper is, it will curl on the coated side...Epson 3800 paper feed is very sensitive, so feeding this Silver Rag paper can be very frustrating and darn right annoying. To solve this issue, I curl the paper in opposite direction and cross my fingers that it will take...I don't think, I will buy another due to frustration over result.
