Dont like the matte finish at all. Actually, it looks more like a flat finish. Looks decent behind glass but not so great without it. Its too bad because Im stuck with a whole box that I suppose Ill just use for practice printing.

good stuff

This is probably the best paper you can easily obtain now, which is great. I use this stuff a lot, but it is expensive. I do prefer rc paper for the cost, but fiber just feels better in your hands. The results, in my opinion, aren’t any better than modern and current rc paper, but it is more traditional. Be ware of wash times, and use a hypo wash to shorten washing . Not water usage friendly, so be aware of environmental impact long washing can do. Also make sure you flatten these prints after drying, as this paper does curl a lot.
