I go to an intensive photography school in Western Massachusetts, here we learn about everything photography, and I was interested in experimenting with different types of ink-jet papers, while at the store I found this pack. I've been able to test out multiple types of papers that apply to my different types of photographs I've been making here. Its an all around great purchase, especially for the price. My only downfall is figuring out how to run the canvas for printing otherwise everything is more than I expected.

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:

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.

    Comments about Moab 8.5 x 11" General Sampler:

    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.

                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.

                                        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...

                                                  This sample box of Moab photographic printing paper is a good way to evaluate papers with different finishes and weights without having to buy a quantity of each.

                                                        In retrospect I would like to have a choice of a coated or uncoated sampler pack with more sheets of each paper. I was interested in the Entrada line - what am I going to do with two sheets of metallic coated?

                                                          It's nice to have a sample of each of the papers before I buy an entire pack of paper not knowing what it's like. All papers are great! Just choose the one that suits your style.
