        We use hot press for many of our fine art prints. Any image where the texture of cold press would be a problem will be printed on hot press bright or natural. These papers are heavy and have real substance to them. They have nice smooth surfaces and show the color very well.

        Comments about Epson Hot Press Natural Smooth Matte Paper - 17 x 22" - 25 Sheets:

        I use the Epson Hot Press Natural Smooth Matte Paper for all of my digital photos because its a solid paper that wont jam in the printer and has great color quality. I am a photo student in college and I first came across this paper when I ordered a sample pack through the Epson store because I didn't know what I would like. Needless to say I have been hooked on this paper ever since. The only con I have to share is that after printing DO NOT touch the print for it will smudge... the ink needs to have time to dry but its totally worth the wait because the print quality is so amazing and it makes your photos look sexy and desirable.

            Comments about Epson Hot Press Natural Smooth Matte Paper - 17 x 22" - 25 Sheets:

            Excellent! Like others, I use this in various sizes up to 17x22 on my Epson 3880 with spectacular results--excellent detail, deep, rich blacks, smooth tonal transitions and strong highlights. There is a beautifully subtle surface texture that doesn't compromise image quality at all and avoids that strangely "pasty" appearance that is often present with smooth matte papers--i.e. prints look like they're printed on paper not some hyper-smooth mystery substance. The prints are perfectly flat with no curl. I haven't done much color work with this paper, but what I have done has been excellent.Recently I made 50 prints for an exhibition that also included several much larger prints (44" x 64") that had to be printed commercially. Since the top of the line Epson papers are made in large rolls for commercial use, it was easy to insure consistency of the paper for all the photographs exhibited. (The great technicians at my excellent local photo lab had to work very hard to equal the image quality achieved with my 3880--a testimonial to that printer).The surface quality of the prints on Hot Press Natural is very durable and its absorbent surface is very forgiving if a nick requires a bit of spotting. For safekeeping, it's best to let prints sit for a couple of days to let the ink "set" thoroughly--though I've never had a problem when I haven't been able to do that.Lastly, THREE CHEERS to Epson for their phenomenal packaging! The paper comes packed in heavy duty boxes with an internal, cardboard box frame around the perimeter that protects the paper in transit--never a damaged corner--and the boxes have a long "after-life" for storage and shipping purposes.(Maybe Epson is listening to this...) Beautiful as your new black boxes are, I wish you hadn't switched from the white ones because the tops and edges were so easy to write on, enabling one to retrieve a box of particular stored prints out of a stack of many with a simple note made with a Sharpie.

              Comments about Epson Hot Press Natural Smooth Matte Paper - 17 x 22" - 25 Sheets:

              I use the Epson Hot Press Natural (all cut sizes up to 17x22") for most of my fine art prints. The paper is slightly warm toned and smooth, and has great detail sharpness and color range. It prints well in my Epson 3880 through the rear manual load tray. Handling is much better than other matte fine art papers I've used. It does not flake, so I have found I don't need to brush or blow off the surface prior to printing, and the surface is more durable after printing.

                  I love this matte paper. The texture is beautiful and subtle and the paper has a nice warm tone to it. It is particularly great for images that contain a lot of black in them; the black space in the image looks much softer and less dense than it would on a luster or smooth surface.
                  This paper also does not have any optical brighteners added to it so it will not get a faded look with time.

                    The paper produces a great subtle and totally even matte finish to pictures giving them an almost "painted" look after printing.
