        Comments about Ilford Galerie Prestige Smooth Pearl (13x19" - 25 Sheets):

        I LOVE this paper for both black and white and color printing. Amazing color gamut, deep, rich, blacks and a surface that doesn't glare when exposed to light. The tonality on this paper is amazing and it's not hard to see why it's an industry standard paper. It is, truly, my favorite pearl paper, right now. And, not only that, but when a nice B&W is printed on it, it looks/feels like an old photo... now, if only we could get that darkroom chemical smell as a spray. :-) In the end, this paper is super cheap, per page, around $0.50 a sheet. That's cheaper than much of the photo paper that you can get from [@] and the like. And, the paper is superior to any of those you get there. It works amazingly well with my Epson Artisan 710. The photos come out rendered stunningly and they're even better with the Stylus Photo R3000...

          Comments about Ilford Galerie Prestige Smooth Pearl (13x19" - 25 Sheets):

          I have used higher priced paper and lower priced paper. A few years ago, using a pigment ink, my favorite paper was the Museo Silver Rag. Recently changing to a dye based ink, because Museo markets their papers as optimized for pigment inks, I looked at various papers for normal use. Recently I printed the same image on four different papers (same size), one with a luster surface, one with a baryta surface and two with a pearl finish including the Ilford Galerie. Giving the prints sufficient time to set, I placed them side by side and looking at them straight on, with the exception of the budget level luster paper, I could not determine which was which (the Baryta surface was discernible if looked at close and from the side). Currently, I believe the Ilford Galerie Prestige Smooth Pearl is the best value in injet papers for dye inks. Images are sharp and the colors have a great range and pop. I am very happy with the finish product using the Galerie paper.

                  I use Iford Galerie smooth pearl for all kinds of prints. It is a plain, simple paper that resists finger prints and holds colors well. I keep sizes from 4x6, 5x7, 8.5x11, 11x17 and 13x19 in stock at all times. It works for everything for my needs.

                          I simply love this paper and Ilford's great work on their ICC profile. I use this on an Epson R2000 or R2880 and find the colors spot on. The smooth pearl paper is ideal for reducing glare when framing a large 13" x 19" print under glass. It isn't cheap but the results are worth the price.
