    This paper made great black and white prints using my Epson Stylus Pro 3880. I used the Advanced B&W Photo setting and adjusted the paper configuration for drying time of 2 (0.2 sec).

    Loved the finish of the paper - glossy, but not overly so much that it was a distraction. Blacks were very rich and deep.

    Wonderful BW print Quality

          Comments about Ilford GALERIE Prestige Gold Mono Photo Paper (8.5 x 11", 25 Sheets):

          After using this paper for several weeks I have found it to be one of the best inkjet monochrome papers yet. It retains wonderful tones and dmax with detail though out.
          I am using this on my Canon Imageprograf printer and just love the results.
          I don't mind the higher than usual glossy finish for an inkjet paper, but do wish it was a little more in line with the Hahnemuhle and Museo glossy finishes.
          Another little minus for me is the 270 gsm weight of the paper. It is just a bit flimsy and would be nice to have it at about 290 gsm. Also I don't care for the back of the paper with the appearance of some type of coating. IMHO would be better with just the paper back side w/o any coating.
          All in all its still a wonderful BW paper and I will keep using it for smaller prints up to 13x19"

          Excellent tonal gradation

          By BW Shooter

          from Charlottesville, VA

          Verified Buyer

          Pros

          • Smooth Tonal Gradation

          Cons

          • Excessively Glossy
          • Light weight

          Best Uses

            Comments about Ilford GALERIE Prestige Gold Mono Photo Paper (8.5 x 11", 25 Sheets):

            I do primarily monochrome digital printing and have experimented with many different papers. This product produces smooth tonal transitions, especially in the mid and darker tonal ranges. This characteristic, along with a good Dmax, has resulted in some of the better prints that I have been able to produce. However, the surface is somewhat more glossy than I would prefer, and with a weight of 270 gsm, it seems rather fragile. For these reasons, I would hesitate to use it for exhibition prints.

            Best thing since Agfa Brovira 111! Excellent for b&w prints. Just like it came out of the darkroom. Now I need to try it for color printing.
