    Low cost way to try Epson's best papers

    This is a great way to get a feel for Epson's fine art papers without spending an arm and a leg on full packs. You get two sheets of each listed paper for testing. For each paper I printed one color and one B&W reference image using an Epson 3880.

    I'm giving the pack 4 stars instead of 5 for the simple reason that Epson does not include sufficient instructions! Five of the papers, the four press papers and Exhibition Fiber, are not listed under Media Type in Epson's print dialog. You are also not likely to have the correct color profiles for these papers. For proper printing you must have the correct profile and media type selected, and Epson gives no advice on this.

    The profiles can be downloaded for your specific Epson printer from Epson's web site. Unfortunately you have to download and install each individually. But adding the correct profiles does not add the papers to the Media Type menu.

    It took me a good 15 minutes searching reviews and blogs to finally decide on the best media types for these papers. For Exhibition Fiber use Premium Luster Photo Paper. For the press papers use UltraSmooth Fine Art Paper. (Don't use those profiles, just those media type settings. Use the correct profile for each paper.)

    Most people who own Epson professional printers and who are interested in these fine art papers know enough to muddle through this. But it really should be a lot easier. People who just start printing are likely to get sub par, or even terrible prints on these papers due to incorrect profiles or media type settings.

    As for the paper...it is, as expected, excellent. Having already spent a great deal of time on the profile/media type issue, I won't spend more describing the papers. Besides, paper and print quality are something you really should evaluate for yourself. With this pack and reference prints in hand you can better judge the ideal choice for each image and project. I will say that the Hot Press papers and Exhibition Fiber will be rotated into my projects now, alongside Velvet Fine Art and Premium Luster, two papers I was already using.

    One last note: try 2880 dpi, at least with the Hot Press papers. Epson printers are so good that on many papers it's hard to see any difference between 1440 and 2880. But on the Hot Press papers 2880 does yield a sharper print.

    Good for examples

    This is a good way to see how your photo will look on different types of paper so that you can get the desired aesthetic.

              These papers are very good, and not too expensive. There are more unique papers available from Hahnemuhle, Canson, etc; some of which are really quite exciting and excellent. There is no epson equivalent of a Hahnemuhle William Turner, or a Canson Mi Tientes, or one of Moab's Washi paper products.However, these offerings from Epson are consistent, have a high gamut and dynamic range, and offer enough variety that I can use these for almost all my printing needs. My primary go to papers from this pack are the Exhibition Fiber and the Velvet Fine Art paper. They can meet the needs for 90% of my prints. The Exhibition Fiber can be very sharp and contrasty paper, and the Velvey Fine Art can get richly colored and vibrant, covering a lot of ground, as far as prints go.

                As a senior at an art college, I use this sample pack to help me choose a paper that I want to use for a specific project. Ideally, you could print an image on all 7 types of paper, pick the one you like, and repeat with only one sample pack. This could help you pick out a paper you want to use for two different projects without guessing. It is a very good value for the professional grade paper that you receive.

                  Comments about Epson Signature Worthy Sample Pack (8.5 x 11", 14 Sheets):

                  This sample pack came with the Epson printer that I purchased. I did not expect the results of my print tests to be this good - in fact, I ordered several other sample packs by very reputable photo paper companies that didn't yield the results of this product. I am blown away by the color quality of the Hot Press Bright paper. I don't know that I have ever had such beautiful color on a matte paper. I am creating encaustics for a body of work and am happy to report that this paper works very well with the wax medium that i am using. The ink does not run with the application of wax, and the wax does not crack in the "freezer test" process for encaustics.

                      I wasn't too familiar with the different kinds of paper that Epson provides, and this sample pack is a great way to learn how prints look on the different types of paper (they can be very different).

                      I almost wish there were three sheets of each sample though, but still a very good variety and amount to do some testing.

                                      I started making color photos after a couple of years of just B&W and found that the paper I was using did not get the full color range I wanted. I tried the Epson Signature Worthy Sample Pack and with the opportunity to try different papers before committing to the greater expense of a full roll, I was able to experiment and was happy to find a paper I love. The Hot Press Bright is a keeper for me. I've used it for color and B&W and I'm equally delighted with both.

                                        First of all the package is well organized, with labeled sheets between each type to keep them separated. If you are looking to try different papers before committing to buying an entire pack, this is the way to go! It will end up saving you lots of money in the end.

                                          I want to exhibit my work and use the paper that will make my prints come to life. Every print is unique and the paper should accent and create an atmosphere. I used this sample pack to determine the best look for my work. I thought this was really helpful.

                                            I tried a few of the papers from this sample pack and they made great prints--one photo and one matte paper.

                                                As others have noted, the sample pack is a great way to examine a range of fine art papers before buying a large quantity. But...the sheets are identified only by a cover page preceding each two-pack set. Unlike other manufacturers, Epson does not embed identifying labels on the paper itself. That means users must take care not to mix up the samples, and to identify them carefully after printing test photos. Also...if there were an identifying label, say, on the rear of the paper, that would make it easier to distinguish front from back (sometimes tough with matte-surface papers). I do wonder why the Epson Ultrasmooth Paper is not included in the kit, since it's marketed as a fine art paper, too...
