I've tried using this paper for printing photos on a Canon Pixma printer and didn't care for the results.

When Canon says "matte", they mean matte. This is essentially heavy bond paper with no texture or gloss of any kind. If you like to print your photos that way, fine. I prefer my non-glossy prints to have a "satin" finish.

My personal preferences do not take away from the usefulness of this paper for other things. For instance, I am using it to print customized pages for a stamp album and it works beautifully.

Given its price, there's no reason not to keep a pack around for those times when you need to print text on heavy paper

Dull B&W, OK for Color

Black and white photos using this paper are a bit too dull for my tastes.

        Heavy user- do long runs 55 + plus sheets all the time. I Like it for applications run on Canon Pixma's various models(edge to edge). 1) It does not have a watermark on the back side like other manufactures. 2) Do custom card layouts(scanned from original 5X7 oil paintings)on glass then processed 2 up as prints out of Picassa..-one cut and then fold. Once folded over the inside of the cards can be written on. 3)Do all Christmas (160) cards on the coated side(picture collage) using Picassa Software and run back side manually for the annual family text message.4)Runs consistently with high quality results. 4) Price is also the lowest for this type of paper. I just bought 12 boxes(free ship) & got the low Canon promo price- will buy some more before the promo ends at end of year.

        I was looking for a heavier weight paper and this product fit the bill perfectly. Though I am use to double sided in this paper weight I found this product to be excellent in weight and brightness and could get by with only one side. Good quality printing also as I use the paper to print finished caricatures for clients. I have purchased this product twice now and will purchase it again.

                This paper is really cheap and the colors I got on the paper from printing are amazing. The only reason I rated it a four is because it was not the matte finish I was expecting; it is not coated on the printing side. However, once in a frame it looks great.

                      The weight of the paper is a little thin. In the past I have used the Epson professional Matte paper which is a little better, overall great value

                        This paper is so nice! I prefer matte paper for much of my work, and this has a nice feel and color output is very true to my specs using Canon's ICC profiles. I also like it's weight. Not a card stock but a bit heavier than typical ink jet stock. Be sure you're printing on the "right" side -- the whiter side is the printing side, otherwise you may not like the color output!

                          Pros:

                          The paper prints very nice and rich colors for my application (making paper keychains of cartoon characters and laminating them)
                          Good weight
                          Price.

                          Cons:

                          It can sometimes be hard to find the correct side. You have to look for the brighter side and feel the smoother side.
                          Not add heavy weight as cardstock, which may be bad for some but good for others.

                          Overall this paper is quite good, especially on a Canon printer.

                            Comments about Canon Photo Paper (Matte) - 8.5x11" - 50 Sheets:

                            My most frequent use for this paper is to use it to make greeting cards using photographs for the card image. The paper is especially good for this use because paper is easy to write a personal message on with a normal ink pen or ball point pen. The paper also makes a glare-free photo image that resists finger prints. It is also nice for printing photos that will be handled a lot, such as photographs to pass around to elementary school students. I also enjoy using it to print black and white images, especially photographs of people.

                              I've been using this Canon matte photo paper for several years to print up the color DVD covers for my short films. They always come out nice...nothing negative to say at all about the paper.
