    THE MOST LUXURIOUS PAPER ON THE COMMERCIAL MARKET. I USE IT FOR BLACK AND WHITE LANDSCAPE WORK. THIS IS MY GO TO PAPER FOR SELLING MY PRINTS IN GALLERIES OR TO COLLECTORS. DEEP BLACKS. CLEAN WHITES. NO METAMERISM. THICK AND SOFT (NOT TOO SOFT) BASE AND SMOOTH BARYTA TYPE TOP LAYER. ONLY CONS I CAN THINK OF IS THE GLOSS IS NOT SEMI-GLOSS BUT NOT GLOSSY GLOSS. SOMEWHERE IN THE MIDDLE. ALSO, THE PAPER CULRS A WEE TOO MUCH IN THE LARGER SHEETS (13X19). PROBLEM CAN BE SOLVED BY LETTING A WEIGHT REST ON THE PAPER OVERNIGHT.

    Archival?

    It seems kinda odd that the paper fluoresces when lit with a black-light. Makes one think that the paper contains optical brighteners. So why is it marketed as an O.B. free archival paper?

      This paper allows photographers to make black and white prints that are as good or better than anything coming from a darkroom. Great texture and deep rich blacks

        Museo Silver Rag Paper gives an inexplicable depth to my digital prints. The feel of the paper adds a sense of the photograph being worth something. No other papers have the subtlety achieved by SMR Paper.

          I really enjoy the surface of this paper. While this type of paper is probably mostly used for black and white, the color reproducitons on this paper are amazing. Compared to other similar papers, I'd say this is on par. I also really enjoy the Baryta Photographique and use both. Tonal ranges are reproduced wonderfully on both (if not a bit dark). The only difference is a slightly different texture between the two. I am very careful while handling the paper, so I have not noticed any sensitivity with the finish. For the price, this is excellent paper.

                Professional weight and feel to this paper. Nice surface, similar to a semi-gloss without the pebbled texture. This paper is on the thick/heavy side, so when I print on my Epson 3880 I need to set the platen gap to "wide" or "wider" and then it prints flawlessly. A great paper for sepia tones to boot.

                  Museo Silver Rag along with Harmon by Hahnemuhle Gloss Baryta and Epson Exhibition are my papers of choice. It's all about the subtle surface and, for me, how blacks, whites and silvers are rendered. Excellent for exhibition purposes, though costly for everyday, run of the mill digital printing.

                                      Simply the best balance of surface quality verses rag feel of any paper on the market--with outstanding archival qualities. Each sheet of rag is separated by a spacer sheet in the box to make sure that the surface quality is perfect. It is this attention to detail that is unique in the industry, and it really does add up to better paper, better prints, better archival life. This is the paper for artists, not engineers.

                                            Museo Silver Rag is a bright white rag paper without optical brighteners, and carries a smooth semi-gloss or 'lustre' finish. It is a wonderful compromise between the 'ivory' of portfolio rag papers and artificially brightened paper, the 'pop' of true gloss paper and the flat surface of matte papers.

                                                This is a great paper and is comparable to traditional fiber.

                                                        Museo Silver Rag may cost more than Epson papers, but you get what you pay for with this paper. Truely in a class of its own. Thick and luxurious with deep blacks and brilliant colors it delivers as close to a photographic print as possible. I use Epson Ultrachrome printers and ink.
