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

    I love the freedom of printing my own photos. With ink as expensive as it is, I like to make the most of my prints and, since upgrading/upating my printer(s), I have been experimenting with a number of papers from the top paper producers. Ilford is a great company with really nice products. The Galerie Prestige Gold Mono Silk Paper has been great for printing my black & white photos as well as color.

    Less than stellar.

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

    Not so great. Printed three different images in black and white. Admittedly, the image was ok, but the ink smeared on the edges of the paper. I immediately loaded Epson Ultra Premium Photo Paper Glossy and printed the same images. The results were excellent, with no smear.

      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).

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

      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

      By Meisterman

      from Santa Fe, New Mexico

      Verified Buyer

      Comments about Ilford GALERIE Prestige Gold Mono Silk 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 Silk 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.
