    Subtle and Nuanced

    By Ganglia

    from SF

    Comments about Ilford Galerie Prestige Gold Fibre Silk Paper (8.5 x 11", 50 Sheets):

    It will be sad when Ilford is gone. This is subtle nuanced paper. It has no comparison especially at this price.

            This is my special paper for black and white prints. I've used at least half a dozen brands and special papers. I even ordered samples of different papers. This paper has no equal for me in my work. I use it only for the work I want to sell, to impress and to sell. I'm a professional when I'm paid for my work. This paper makes me a professional.

                I use other papers for various reasons but this is by far the paper I use most often. 1 star for color. 2nd star for weight-very substantial. 3rd star for texture (or lack of it).4th star for size. 13 X19 must have been made for 35MM users. I print one 12 X 18 with half inch borders and no waste or two 8 X 12 with half inch borders on the same sheet with only one inch waste. 5th star is because it comes 50 sheets to a box.

                If Ilford quits selling it in 50 sheet boxes you can deduct one star.

                This is just about all I print on unless I need / have to go full matt or gloss.

                Absolutely amazing prints. Get the ICC profiles, get dialed into your printer flow and features and there is no finer result.

                IMHO

                        Comments about Ilford Galerie Prestige Gold Fibre Silk Paper (8.5 x 11", 50 Sheets):

                        Ilford may be out of business, but this paper is exactly the same as the old Gold Fibre Silk as far as I can tell.

                        That is the good news. The price is a little higher, and that is the bad news.

                        It is still the best paper out there for general use if you want a baryta containing paper.

                              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.

                                      Excellent weight, finish, and color rendition. Ilford is the company for me.

                                        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.
