          Decent paper for higher-end prints. Fingerprint can be a problem so wear gloves when handling!

              For years and years Epson has been relatively consistant with this stock's performance and consistency. Since, perhaps, the last couple of years with US product we've had to resort to extensive batch lot vs. batch lot testing to get the performance we used to see without testing.
              Perhaps they will once again get tighter tolerances but for now we have to test. Our clients and GRACOL standards require this of us.

              And B&H has the depth of stock in house to make this possible.

              So, really, we'd like to give B&H FIVE STARS! Epson, not so much, right now.

                This paper is my favorite inkjet paper. The surface is as neutral as it gets, and it's very reasonably priced. For most purposes, this paper serves just beautifully. I recommend it to my students every semester.

                I wish it was available in sheets as well.

                    I love the surface and weight of this paper - it most closely resembles my former C-printing darkroom paper, Kodak Surface N. The base white is exceptionally bright but a little on the blue/cyan side. I wish it were available in cut sheets because smaller prints tend to curl quite a bit and take forever to flatten out.

                    I am a photographer and print my own work with an Epson 4880. I like semi-matte paper because it provides brilliance of colors, while not reflecting too much ambient light that could distract from the photographs on the print. I would prefer to purchase a matte 16'' x 100' roll... or, rather, a more matte semi-matte (there's a little too much pearl for my taste), but Epson's premium semi-matte works well for the test prints I produce in the mean time.

                    I use this to print large photos with an Epson Stylus Pro 4880 printer. The pictures are crystal clear and the colors are both brilliant and accurate. I will be using this paper a lot.
