Comments about Hahnem?hle Photo Rag Paper (8.5 x 11", 25 Sheets):

This is a simply terrific paper, that I settled on after testing many for the particular project I am currently working on. The richness of it, lends a special object quality to the prints, that that I am very happy with...and I plan to be using it again in the future!

    Comments about Hahnem?hle Photo Rag Paper (8.5 x 11", 25 Sheets):

    As the description states, this is a rather smooth paper without too much texture. I printed both B&W and color, both works pretty well.
    Holds up to the quality of Hahnemuehle.
    4 Stars because of the price - still well within reason but on the expensive side of things.

      Comments about Hahnem?hle Photo Rag Paper (8.5 x 11", 25 Sheets):

      I use the paper to make platinotypes.
      Works very well with that medium.
      The only con, if you can call it a con is that it is too good for ordinary ink jet prints

      I have not printed my in years. I just bought the P800 Epson and some of this paper. I used it years ago and it is still a favorite. Like an old friend... great feel to the paper, sharp crisp blacks with a lush fine art look even with B&W. Love it.

            I used this product for a photography exhibition printing class and shared the box with a friend for our final assignments. We both felt that the feel of the paper and quality of the final print were exceptional. We calibrated our own color profiles for this paper as part of the class (there are profiles also available online). It took awhile for us to get the hang of feeding the individual sheets through the manual rear tray of our printer, but after experimentation, managed to get a smooth feed. Overall we were pleased with the quality and results.

                I'm using this paper for images taken on the streets and in the public places of New York City. Mostly, then, they're daylight photos, but some are interiors with a variety of light sources. In all situations, the print quality--especially the color quality--is captivating. It's rich, highly detailed, subtle, and captures seemingly the entire gamut in my digital files. If you're printing something important to you and you want a yummy surface and color, this is the paper for you.

                I tried black and white versions of the same photos on this paper and didn't like it as much as some other papers. But for color, it's outstanding.

                    I swear by Hahnemuhle. I've been using it for a decade now and won't trust any other photo rag paper. The prints are always amazing, the colors (if done with a good printer) always look rich and deep. I use an Epson and couldn't imagine a better combination.

                      I use this on an Epson printer with Ultrachrome K3 inks and the icc profile provided by Hahnemuhle. The colors are beautiful and the look is photographic on the edge of painting. The paper is not terribly textured so that details except for the finest hold well. The 308 weight is heavy as one might expect in a good watercolor paper. Great for the prints you care most about. One warning, you'll need to follow the instructions for using the profile carefully if you aren't used to printing with paper profiles in Photoshop.
