This is a thick paper with a solid feel and nice texture -- much better than Lustre. Without a doubt it is Epson's finest paper ever manufactured. I viewed several prints made with an Epson 9900 and this paper that were beyond description. They were that great! The sharp tones and brilliant colors are terrific.

As for this paper being similar to that of papers used by wet darkroom owners, I highly disagree on this point. I had a darkroom for many years. Exhibition Fiber Paper is absolutely nothing at all like the papers I used in that environment. This is not a shortcoming. It is just an observation. Exhibition Fiber Paper is a marvelous product on its own basis.

I started printing in the darkroom over 40 years ago with Kodak Medalist and Kodabromide glossy "F" surface papers. I loved the look of those papers along with Agfa Brovira and Portriga Rapid--all with the smooth "F" surfaces. Since I never owned a ferrotype plate, all my prints were air dried. According to Epson, the Exhibition Fiber is supposed to recreate the look of a glossy fiber paper that was dried without ferrotyping. It's close but not good enough. There is a slight surface texture to this paper that was never there in the F-surface papers of old. To my eyes, this leads to a little loss in definition of the printed image. There's also a lack of vibrancy in the colors. Pictures printed on this paper just look dull to my eyes whereas the same photo printed on Epson's Premium Photo Paper Glossy paper completely dances off the surface with life.

I do like the weight of this paper compared to the lighter weight Epson paper but the weight is not really a factor when the picture is mounted and exhibited behind glass. Based on image quality alone, I think Exhibition Fiber is only "OK" but not really worth the extra cost.

              When it works it's great. It has a lovely, smooth surface. Regrettably, about 50% of my printing attempts with 8.5 x 11" paper were ruined by either 1) black spots on the paper as it came from the box, 2) feeding problems (mostly but not entirely fixed by setting my Epson 3880's platen gap to "wide") or 3) white specks that appeared on the paper after printing, as either bits of the paper surface flaked off or loose flakes that I had missed in my pre-printing air-bulb dusting of the paper came off. Very frustrating. Not sure if I'm going to continue to use it after the batch I bought from B&H during the last Epson rebates runs out.

                    The paper does not do flesh tones well. I printed the same photo with Epson's Ultra Premium Photo Paper Luster and it was far superior. The Exhibition Fiber Paper curls (by Epson's own admission) in response to heat and humidity during the printing process. Other prints that I made at the same time with other papers did not curl at all. That said, for black and white prints, it showed great resolution and tonality.

                          I ordered this not realizing that it's designed specifically for K3.
                          After some trial and error, it produces very fine portrait prints.
                          Paper Type: Ultra Premium Luster
                          ICC: SPR2000: Premium Luster.
                          Skin tones are accurate and are very well saturated.
                          Bottom line: For UltraChrome ink, this produces very good results, but there are better choices for R2000.

                              I retired from teaching at The Williston Northampton School in Easthampton, MA. 16 years ago but have continued to maintain a display of team photographs at the School. Presently there are over 1600 photographs on the walls of the gym with the first one being that of the 1870 baseball team.
                              Although most are archival monochrome prints we started taking taking and printing the pictures digitally about 5 years ago. However, the printer got about 5 seasons behind so I decided I would take on the printing of them. Fortunately, I live close to the School and have access to the computer/printer area at the photo lab. I looked around for a good paper to use and Epson's Exhibition Fiber Paper for Inkjet was recommended so I tried it and am immensely pleased with the results. The soft gloss surface is ideal for the display. All photographs continue to be printed in B&W with a slight warm tone.

                                  I've made a couple of dozen prints with this paper on an Epson 4900 printer. Results are completely mixed - they're either great prints or rejects. It appears that about one print in five will have a tiny "bubble" of ink that doesn't completely adhere to the surface of the paper. When the ink's dry, the bubble flakes off, leaving a tiny white spot. The problem seems most pronounced with the Photo Black ink.

                                  I'll keep looking for a better paper.

                                  This is a high quality paper, it renders the colors very nice, it looks more contrasty than Casnon Baryta paper. it is tick and sturdy and it has more texture than baryt papers. The only reason I am giving 4 stars is the lack of profile on Epson's website and there are no good instruction on which media to select (gloss, luster, semi-gloss). Epson should've done beter job on this. Something that other reviewers noted: the coating of the paper peels off time to time and you have to re-print.

                                    Comments about Epson Exhibition Fiber Paper for Inkjet (8.5 x 11", Letter , 25 Sheets):

                                    Everybody loves Exhibition Fiber, and for good reason: it looks and feels like the fiber-based papers we used back in those halycon days when the smell of fixer filled you anticipation.

                                    I use a lot of this, but after doing a comprehensive comparison of top-shelf fine art papers, I'm switching to Hahnemuhle Fine Art Photo Rag Pearl. My tests were far from objective — I was looking for the best paper for my style of photography. Now I will say that Exhibition Fiber was a close second and is, in my optinion, still one of the best PK (photo black) papers available.

                                      Scott Kelby recommended it and it's one of the best recommendations he ever made. It's a top-of-the-line paper.

                                      A great weight, but looks pretty much like the high end luster paper. Very nice tones, but not as quite a luminous a surface as I'd like. I guess nothing really can replace traditional color prints...

                                            Beautiful, high quality, heavy weight paper. I am really pleased with how images look on it. My only complaint is several sheets have had dark specs in them, which I have had to reserve for some of my darker images so they disappear.

                                              I've been a photographer for better than 40 years and printed in the darkroom until making the total conversion to digital about 10 years ago. I've printed b&w, C-prints, R-prints, Cibachrome, Agfa and Kodak transfer, Polaroid and even learned Dye Transfer printing.

                                              I've tried many, many "fine-art, double-weight, matt-dry glossy" papers. Each time I do, I've never been satisfied until I tried the Epson Exhibition Fiber Paper and I haven't looked back.

                                              Images printed using my 3880 and 9900 Epson printers just can't be beat, even better than when I did dye transfer on double-weight glossy paper. It prints well, the blacks are rich, the whites are better than all but Cibachrome Glossy. The prints stay pretty flat for museum mounting without having to de-curl the prints.

                                              For my portfolio and highest-quality images and when I'm printing for a museum or gallery show, there's not much better than the Exhibition Fiber paper!

                                              Though it's higher in cost than Epson Premium Luster, prints simply have a nicer feel and richer look, weather b&w, "toned" b&w or color.
