      Comments about Epson Velvet Fine Art Paper - 17x22" - 25 Sheets:

      This paper has the look and feel of fiber based paper and makes beautiful prints with the 3880. However, if you take out a few sheets and forget which side is up and how it came out of the box it is IMPOSSIBLE to tell the printing side from the back side. This paper is not double sided!!! So you can really get frustrated trying to figure which side is which and you can waste a ton of paper printing on the wrong side. I started putting a light pencil mark in the corner of the up side to make sure I didn't make a mistake.

        I use this paper to print fine art photographs. It has a wonderful texture, subtle but tactile. Sent a few images to a fellow photographer who was just blown away by the prints. Gives the photo an authentic fine art look and feel. Just wish it was available in larger rolls or sheets!

          A Wonderful Gallery Paper

          Comments about Epson Velvet Fine Art Paper - 17x22" - 25 Sheets:

          I have used his paper in my old Epson R1800 and now my new Epson Pro3880. In the R1800, I fell in love with the subtle texture and the wonderful richness and saturation that this paper was capable of. With the 3880, things are even better and now I get beautiful black and white images, too. If you want a gallery look and feel, especially if you play with filters such as "dry brush" in Photoshop or you manipulate images in Corel Painter, this paper will give you a texture that compliments those "painterly" looks perfectly. But it is also a great paper for "artsy" photographs and landscape/scenic photographs too because it will keep nice crisp edges. It is not cheap, but quality never is. I suggest using Epson Ultra Premium Matte to do your proofs and only use this paper for the final print to keep costs down. As other people have mentioned, B&H packages papers so they arrive undamaged using an outer box and bubble wrap. No bent corners with B&H. They do it right.

                  For several years I had used Hahnemuhle Fine Art papers for my exhibition prints, particularly B&W, UNTIL I discovered this Epson paper AT HALF THE PRICE! Rich blacks, excellent grayscale range and spot-on, vivid contrast. Surprise: Color rendition is also rich and deep. I LOVE THIS PAPER!

                    I use it for fine art prints, which it is EXCELLENT for... WONDERFUL saturation with my 3880... just be VERY careful handling it and the surface is very susceptible to scratching.
                    (not that you can compare the two...) ... but it blows the exhibition fiber out of the water!

                        If you use this product correctly, with high end ink, printer, formating, and color corrected monetor this paper will shine every time. Literally! This is not a glossy paper, but it doesn't need to be. If there is any metal or reflective surfice in your image somehow the paper helps it to actually appear glossy and metalic like. The only thing that is difficult with this paper is that any oil from your fingers will stay on the paper. Make sure you wear archival gloves when touching any part of the paper or your print will br ruined.

                              Comments about Epson Velvet Fine Art Paper - 17x22" - 25 Sheets:

                              This is the first time I have used this paper, and I am astounded at the results. I am printing on an Epson Pro3880, and I was simply thrilled when the first print came out of the printer. This paper is NOT cheap, so I plan to use something else for drafts, but this will definitely be me "go to" paper for final images.

                                I love this paper and output from my Epson 3800. It's expensive, so I want it to arrive in perfect condition with no bent corners or other damage. Thanks to B&H for packaging the product VERY carefully to minimize the potential for damage during shipment.

                                  I used this to print a giclee of my artwork. It gave it a very nice feel, with a bit of texture. It provided good contrast and color. I will use it again.

                                    This is a beautiful paper for both color and monochrome photo prints. Just be sure your Epson printer has matte black capability, and can handle this weight and thickness paper. The images are rich.
