I originally ordered this particular paper because it was what the teacher for my photography course requires that we ordered. After using it for a few months, I realized that it is the best choice for general use in printing black and white. I like that the pearl is a great balance between glossy and matte, both of which seem to distort the image some with reflection or lack of. It has also been the most economical choice for me.

Ok Paper

This paper is not quite what i thought it would be but it is ok. I think i would prefer more of a glossy paper for the finish that i am looking for.

        Have used this product for four years now. It is durable and perfect for my photography. The paper is a mix between matte and glossy. Thus, it has some shine but not much making it have a nice depth to it. It lasts for a long time and if you ever want to make sure to preserve it, just stick it in the freezer.

        With Pearl, the blacks are not as deep as glossy yet this paper can get a pretty good black. Images have great contrast and gradient. Photographs I have printed four years ago still look as though they were printed yesterday.

        I cannot think of any cons. This is a good pack of paper for a good price. It is nice for work prints, contact sheets, and final prints. I definitely would recommend this product along with the Ilford Fiber Paper, a nicer quality paper for final prints.

                    This is a good paper for full tonal range. I'm using 4x5 film and the paper has a good presence as well as a medium luster finish. Good archival paper for prints.

                          I know there is higher quality paper but this worked very well for me. I am a college student taking an photography class, so price and speed of delivery are important to me. This was the cheapest price I found for the paper, it came very quickly, and my prints turned out great!

                            Bought this for my photo class (sophomore in college) and I love the use of the paper from start to finish: it's nice and glossy before using it and perfectly matte without the shine nor glare once completely developed, along with well accurate blacks, whites and grey hues throughout. Don't have any complaints with it

                            I have always loved this particular paper. When using Marshal oils to hand color photography prints it's soaks up the oils very nicely. I also like the fact that it is a matte finish instead of a glossy because glossy can get annoying for those of us with glasses.

                              I've been using this paper to make photograms for a photography intro class and am just stunned with the results. I had never worked in a darkroom before, so I have no prior experiences to compare this to, but the paper is what my professor requires and there's obviously a reason for that.

                                For those people who don't want to go through the wait and hassles of printing on fiber based paper, the Ilford RC Pearl is a great workhorse paper. The pearl finish is great for those who find the glossy finish almost reflective and think the matte finish is a bit flat. Great for beginner printers and students.

                                  Comparing to the Matte and glossy paper. Pearl is by far my favorite. This paper gives you a perfect looking finish. Blacks never get crushed and whites are always pure white. I recommend this over any other paper for RC!!
