Epson S045589 reviews

Metallic Photo Paper Glossy (8.5 x 11", 25 Sheets) is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 19.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent metallic photo paper I feel I have to write this review for two audiences. The first audience is those of you who have never tried a metallic inkjet paper before and are curious about them in general, and the second audience of course is those who have used other brands of metallic inkjet paper before and are interested in how this Epson version is. I've been doing some test printing with this paper in a few sizes including 17x22 and as a comparison, I've been printing on Moab Slickrock Metallic Pearl for over a year now with excellent results, so I am familiar with the metallic inkjet papers. I print on an Epson 3880 and prior to that, an Epson 3800. So, for those who have never printed on a metallic injket paper, a few words of advice. The surface is quite glossy and of course that means if you angle the print around it will react differently to light. Old school photographers used to the Cibachrome/Ilfochrome glossy color darkroom papers will see this paper as roughly in the same category of shiny. From a structure point of view, it is of reasonable weight and curl resistance, but is not as heavy/solid as, say, Epsons Exhibition Fiber and thus requires some care when handling the larger sizes. Metallic papers are one of those things that are either going to really sing with some subject matter - or they won't. Some people will really like them, and some won't, and it may be a somewhat hot or cold reaction. I think more than whether they are good or bad that it is more of whether the subject matter fits well with the glossy, bright, shiny characteristics of the paper. I tend to use the paper for two things: First, black and white studio work involving human skin. This paper works extremely well when there is a fair amount of skin, particularly if it's lit with a bit more contrast involving shadow and light interplay. B&W human figure work rocks with this paper, as does B&W fashion in a more european sensuality style. I'm not sure it is what I would use for headshots or bridal portraits lit in flat light, but customers who I photograph in the human figure, dance and movement, and B&W sensual fashion genres absolutely love this paper. The other thing this paper is great for is the bold, strong landscape. Think the American Southwest, the waterfalls of the Pacific Northwest, and certainly night/dusk shots, particulary if water is involved. THIS is your night cityscape or Big Sur at sunset paper. A few technical notes: If you do try it, be aware that you need to soft proof this in photoshop - there is more of a difference (IMO) between the perceptual and relative colormetric rendering with this paper than most, and the paper will tend to print a slight bit darker and the slightest bit more blue in general tone than others. Proper soft proofing with the excellent Epson profiles that you can download will help you quite a bit, but I still would recommend some test prints at smaller size before doing your first, say, 17x22 or 13x19 print. So it takes a bit of skill, but it's not horribly difficult either. For those who have worked with the Moab Slickrock Metallic Pearl paper, this is very, very similar and differences between them are subtle in nature. I would say if you are printing on the photo Epsons in ABW mode that might (and I emphasize the word might) find the Epson paper just a hair less contrasty and just a hair cooler in tone; but this is subtle, as you would expect given the similarities in surface. Still, it is worth testing yourself. The surface texture is extremely similar; the Epson might have just the very slightest bit more texture. These are very close. Weight and curl resistance are similar. For B&W printing, I could see picking one or the other of these based upon price, availability, or size. Again, I think the Epson is just a touch cooler, but not significantly so. For color work, I find the Epson color profiles are much better than the ones provided by Moab. So those of you who roll your own profiles need read no further. For those who will download the profiles from the manufacturers websites, I think for color work in most cases I have a distinct preference for the Epson profile and the Epson paper combination. Personally, I've decided to stock the 8x10, 13x19 and 17x22 sizes of the Epson Metallic Glossy and continue to stock also the A2 size of the Moab Slickrock Metallic Pearl, since A2 is different in terms of ratio than the Epson and I often like to produce borderless prints. In color I do have a preference for the Epson, but in B&W I would be happy using either. I hope this helps those who are considering this paper.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent I'm using this in an Epson 3880. I find this an excellent medium for some of my favorite image types: extreme macros of insects, detailed portraits of raptors and other birds, colorful landscapes and similar things. It would also be superb for B&W images. I wouldn't call this a general purpose paper, but once you learn where it works, it's really terrific. I've used other brands of metallic paper, and Epson's produces the most predictable metallic paper I've used and gamut is very good.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Disappointing because of the base. I have been using Inkpress Metallic Glossy for a certain photo series (it's definitely not a general-purpose paper). Decided to try the Epson equivalent. I was much disappointed because the paper is decidedly less bright and less white than the Inkpress and carries a slight yellow cast, a bit like a very out-of-date silver paper (for those who remember those things). I will return to the Inkpress paper.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Very sharp, but white is dull This is a very nice paper if you like to examine your print details closely because the resolution is much higher than non-metallic paper. However, the downside is that whites look more like steel than white, causing the overall image to look grayish. The gloss isn't as smooth and glasslike as Cibachrome, but it is pretty decent.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This Paper Makes Sales for Me I'm stuck on this paper. I've never seen my prints look so nice. Anyone who sees them is very impressed. This paper is making sales for me. My use is for very highly saturated colors. They do pop off the paper like people state. There is a 3D-ish effect in the prints. I highly recommend this paper.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from New experiment I use metallic papers for some type of photos. The results are great but the papers are difficult to handle. This is my first try with Epson metallic papers. So far the handling is difficult but I guess it is the nature of the paper. I need to set-up the printer differently. The colors, etc, are excellent.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing Prints This paper is extraordinary with the right subject matter. The images seem 3 dimensional and really pop just like commercially printed metallic prints. But it's effect isn't apparent on all images. It's difficult to explain which images work best but you'll get the hang of it after a few tries. I am using the paper on an Epson XP-15000 which has the T312/T314 Claria Dye cartridges. With that combination I am getting dry prints in less than 30 minutes. I'm still experimenting with the drying because I don't want to smudge a print but I think they might even be dry in 10 minutes with the Claria T312/T314 Dyes. I am pretty sure your results will vary depending on your Printer, Ink or Dye combinations and drying times will vary as well but the combination I stated above works great! (But you're probably pretty safe with most Epson Ink/Dye products on this Epson paper)

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great for black & white prints! I still shoot a lot of film and the metallic photo glossy paper is best for fine details and excellent contrast for zone system style photos from scans of black & white film. It closely resembles silver prints made in a traditional darkroom. Unfortunately it does not do as well with color, therefore just 4 stars.
