          GFS is an excellent semi-gloss photo paper. I use it for most of my work, both B&W and color. I did need a custom profile using it with an Epson 3880 printer, the one Ilford supplied was not so great, surprising since the Iford profile for the Epson 2200 was very good. I highly recommend it.

              I have used many type of paper for printing and the Ilford Galerie Prestige has become one of my favorites. The print quality of color and BW on this paper is wonderful. The paper is a bit more durable than other papers that I have used and is a great value for the price.
              I would definitely recommend this paper to anyone who wants high quality prints.

                    Comments about Ilford Galerie Prestige Gold Fibre Silk Paper (8.5x11" - 50 Sheets):

                    I use this paper with an Epson 3880 printer. Most of my prints are monochrome, but I do print color on this paper as well. I have used this paper in 8.5x11 and 11x17 sizes.

                    Ilford Gold Fiber Silk has a nice luster, fine tooth (no distracting surface texture), and feels pleasantly heavy. It is an alpha-cellulose paper, so of course it doesn't feel quite the same as a cotton rag paper, but it nevertheless gives the impression of top quality. Gloss differential is minimal, even on high-key photographs, images are sharp, and the dynamic range is very good. This paper has a somewhat warm tone and uses no optical brightening agents, so longevity should be good as well.

                    Honestly the only drawback I've found is I've had to widen the platen on my printer when using the 8.5x11 size paper in order to avoid head strikes, but that's an easy fix requiring just a couple of mouse clicks. Highly recommended.

                            I bought this based on an online review for B&W paper. I printed the same neg on 4 different papers for comparison. This one is by far the best--long scale, more tonal separation---works really well for my work.

                              Just started using this paper on my Epson 3880 for small-midsize prints.

                              It produces vivid colors, sharp details, excellant B&W prints and has a hefty 310 GSM weight.

                              Very reasonable price.
