Having been printing my images for several years on both Canon and Epson printers and papers, I have found that Canon Photo Plus Luster produces outstanding images, particularly on wide format paper. The weight, feel, and print quality of Canon Photo Paper Plus Luster is unequaled by any other products at comparable prices. I would recommend Canon Photo Paper Plus Luster to all those who demand the highest quality in their images.

I got this paper for free with my Pixma Pro-100. I normally use Red River Papers and will in the future stick with them. While the prints that come out with this paper aren't bad or anything, they just don't have the vibrancy and saturation that I personally like to see for the work I do. The RRP papers are much more vibrant and their comparably priced papers are heavier stock, as well. I never really like the Canon brand papers so it doesn't surprise me... but that is my personal experience. It's cool that I got to try it out though. Thanks!

Good value.

Comments about Canon Photo Paper Pro Luster (13x19" - 50 Sheets):

There is definitely some bronzing and paper must be handled carefully as inks are easily wiped off with hands even after drying using precision color inksworth the Canon pixma 9500 mkii. That is easily corrected with inkpress finishing spray, this finish produces an incredible print and excellent value. I highly recommend this paper as a great value and bang for buck.

    Once I found the sweet spot as to how this paper worked with my printer I was very satisfied with the results. I gave it a five because it met my expectations. I print both landscape and portrait and both come out just superb. you may have to go with more gloss if you're printing commercial shots, but for portraits and landscapes this paper is excellent!

      This is my first time using photo paper as I just purchased my first printer. I purchased the Canon Pro Luster based on the great reviews it has received. I have not used any other paper but from what I see so far I am impressed with the Canon Pro Luster as the colors are vibrant and sharp.

        I love the Luster, it has a great look to it, moreso than the glossy or semi-gloss. Plus the size is awesome for getting some great photos with good detail. It is a bit pricey, compared to off-brand papers, but I doubt you'll get the quality and the look of the luster off-brand.

                  Love the paper. Just a bit impractical to print everything at 13x19. should have gone with 8x10 instead. Great product tho!

                    This paper reviewed very well. It's a great paper to have for prints due to it's Luster quality. It's a matte type paper, but still has great print shine in areas.
                    The coating has a wonderful feel, and the thickness is excellent.
                    B&H had the best pricing, and the packagin was outstanding!

                      I'm just starting to print some 13 x 19 color photos for the first time using an older Epson R2400. I had only printed 4 x 6 previously and all on glossy paper. At first I tried Epson 13 x 19 matte paper but it wasn't what I was looking for when I tried a few prints. Maybe I didn't prep my photos for the type of paper but the color and detail on the matte paper was really poor for my landscape photos. Or I may try the matte with B/W photos to see if its more suitable to B/W images. So anyway I bought the Canon luster paper (eventhough I'm using an Epson printer) and I was very pleased with the results. Color and detail is very nice and no issues with Epson inks adhering to Canon paper. Very pleased with trying this paper.

                        Bought two boxes on sale. Seriously couldn't be happier with the quality at that price. I run this paper through a Canon Pro-100 and the output is as good as it gets for my use. I like the weight of the paper. It is easy to work with, move around, mount, and so on. Will definitely buy again. Good stuff

                          I have only used this paper with the Canon Pixma Pro-100. It produces good vibrant color and offers fairly sharp images. A bit sharper than I see with the rag papers The texture reminds me of photographic resin paper.
                          The profile I downloaded from canon seemed just a tad bit dark but not to far off.
                          I did not give it 5 stars because I haven't had a chance to review printed images after they have aged for a few years.

                                    Comments about Canon Photo Paper Pro Luster (13x19" - 50 Sheets):

                                    I'm an amateur photographer and have been using glossy photo paper only. Luster was recommended by a friend and what an improvement. I'm sure I'll be buying more.
