Arista EDU Ultra VC RC Semi-Matte Reviews

Great quality, no complaints

By Kaitlyn

I've said it before and I'll say it again. For my purposes (photo student) Arista is my go-to. I've spent more on Ilford paper that produced essentially the same results. Maybe I don't have a keen eye to tell the difference yet, but if you're not submitting prints to a gallery I highly recommend Arista.

A great budget paper

An amazing paper for the price. Do note that the paper stock itself has a slightly cool tone to it. I developed mine in Eco Pro paper developer and this combo ended up with cool highlights from the paper with warm shadows from the developer which gave a subtle and enjoyable split tone effect.

I think we got a bad batch

I have used this product before without issue, but this seems to be a bad batch. The tone is completely off. There is no white, everything is grey. Even an unexposed sheet comes out of the developer grey. I thought it was the developer and switched it out for a fresh batch. Same problem. Very disappointing for my students.

great for lumen printing

Nice hues for lumen printing, reddish orange to sepia. And you can write on the back with a pencil, but you need to use a soft lead. hb or hard lead won't work. I like it and it's reasonably priced

Disappointing.

I am always looking for a paper to match the now discontinued Agfa that I used to use. This ain't it. The ILford is a better paper, so I will keep looking. One big drawback for the Arista - the backside cannot be written on in pencil, so I can't determine exposure data on the print.

Excellent

Most other paper sheens are easy to differentiate from the back, but with the semi-matte I struggled to identify the emulsion side and ruined a few sheets at first, until I figured out to use the finger-lick method: lick a finger and stick it on a corner. Do it on the reverse side to compare. The noticeably stickier side is the emulsion (light-sensitive).

Nice paper for the price
