The sample pack gives me an opportunity to look at a variety of papers available from MOAB and to print the samples. I create a montage of images of different types for printing onto each sample, print them, then compare which kinds of images look best on different papers. With other sample sets, I can put a 3-ring book of papers from different manufacturers together and use the information for regular printing projects.

A very good form to know different kind

It's a nightmare to find samples of different materials. This is one of them. Perhaps... It would be free, with smaller samples...

Yes, it would be definitely better...

      Comments about Moab 8.5 x 11" General Sampler:

      I love the printing my own photos. Since updating/upgrading my printer, I have been gradually experimenting with a number of "fine art" papers. With the high cost of ink, I try to make the most of every print and I love discovering which papers give me the best results with my printers. The MOAB products by Legion Paper have reliably been some of my favorites and are a great value. Legion Paper has great customer service. They respond promply (and personally) to inquiries. They have a fantastic range of products for most printing and fine art needs.

        Great all around sampler of MOAB Papers. However, I think this could be better served by splitting the pack into two samplers. One for the Rag paper and other watercolor papers and one for photographic styled papers.

                If you plan to print your own portfolio, or prints for display on your desktop printer than I think Moab is a great company to consider. THis package gives you two full sheets of every paper for a direct comparison. Labels on back of sheets keep them identified, althoug I wish you could peel them off and actually use the paper you just paid for. Some papers are obscure that seem like novelties to me, but there is nothing like seeing, feeling and trying a new paper in your printer to see if you want to buy more. A very useful package.

                      This pack of Moab paper gives a good sampling of each paper. There are a couple of surfaces that are duplicated in different weights. I think this is unnecessary because I feel that the main purpose of a sampler pack is to experience the different print surfaces.

                            This was a great way for me to sample different types of photo paper before I spent the money on larger format (13x19) paper. So far I have been extremely impressed by the quality of the prints I'm getting with this paper combined with my Canon Pixma Pro 9000 Mark II. There are a couple papers in this pack I'll probably never purchase down the road, but plenty that I will. I mainly shoot landscapes in color and am very pleased with how the color pops of the paper.

                              I am taking the second digital printing class at school and needed to choose 2 types of paper but I didn't know where to start and what I would like. The Moab Sample pack was awesome and they give you 2 sheets of paper for each type.

                                  Good paper is quite expensive, so finding the paper that is right for you or a specific piece can be difficult and pricey. Going through this sample pack I have found a couple types of paper that I will purchase in larger sizes, and a few more I would normally have purchased because of their descriptions but after trying them I will not.

                                  Worth a try for someone that wants to try different high quality papers...

                                  Moab also has icc profiles for all their papers for most printers.

                                    I greatly appreciate a sampler package like this. It allows me to preview each Moab paper and thereby choose a specific paper for printing photos on.

                                      It's a nightmare to find samples of different materials. This is one of them. Perhaps... It would be free, with smaller samples...

                                      Yes, it would be definitely better...

                                        Comments about Moab 8.5 x 11" General Sampler:

                                        I use Entrada Bright White Rag almost exclusively for my fine art prints, and I like it a lot, but have been wanting to try a few other papers and experiment with Photo Black as opposed to Matte Black ink to get deeper richer blacks. I use an old Epson R2400 which works for me - Moab could do a little better to make the profiles easier to find on their website, but I have them all and they seem to work - they also should clearly identify which papers use Photo Black and which ones use Matte Black, as that is never expressly stated in the info anywhere, so I'll have to guess... So far I've only tried a few of the Matte papers, and I can see some subtle differences with the specific colors such as blues, but I'll have to do more testing to see which ones I prefer. Also, they put labels on the back of each sheet, which is fine for one-sided papers, but it does effect the possibility to print on both sides of the two-sided samples, though that's not an issue for me...
