    Multigrade FB Classic Matt Variable Contrast Paper (8 x 10", 25 Sheets) is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 17.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice Finish! I purchased this photo paper for a special topics class where we make photograms. I wanted something with a finish that would make contrast look like thick velvet. After gram-ing, as my professor called it, a bunch of flowers, branches, and leaves, I developed (which takes a minute or two with fiber paper, so be patient) and washed the images and set them out to dry. After a couple of days I went back and the colors were remarkable. The blacks were rich and the whites were crisp. THIS IS FIBER PAPER SO IT IS GOING TO CURL. I simply left my images in a book to press them for a couple days and they were flat again, heat presses always work too, but be carful not to over process your work! Overall great product with a beautiful finish, highly recommend for the consumer who is looking for a hearty paper that feels good on your fingertips.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great, easy paper This paper is very straight forward. Have used it for years and always get reliable results. The matt is a nice finish with good blacks. Easy to flatten, but never is perfectly flat all around, but that is the nature of fiber paper

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Multigrade FB Classic Contrast Paper I used this product in my intermediate photography class that we used black and white 35mm film. I loved the way the paper absorbed the detail that I captured in many of my shots. I took a lot of long exposure night shots and I loved the way they printed in the dark room. My only two complaints was any tiny little piece of dust showed up on the print where other paper I have used was more forgiving. I also wish the paper wasn't so curled because it made a little more of a challenge to place it on the frame straight when using the enlarger. I do prefer fiber paper though.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for Hand Coloring Because of its matte finish it's great for being able to take a variety of different materials when you want to complete your black and white project with a bit of color through hand coloring. The variable contrast component provides you with a means to adjust to your specific contrast needs.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good I don't like that this paper is harder to handle than RC paper but it allows me to sepia tone and solarize pictures a lot better so 4/5 stars :)

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from High Quality Fiber Paper I use this paper in my university photography class for printing my black & white film photos. It has rich, deep blacks and bright whites, and seems to give better photo quality than RC paper. It is, however, a bit fussier than RC when developing, and tends to curl when drying unless given careful attention.
