I had been using the Ilford Galerie Prestige Smooth Pearl to print my pictures previous to discovering this. Having accumulated printing experience, I then opted for a more luxurious and thicker stock. I had tried products from Canson and Hahnemuhle but they didn't give me as good results as the Ilford papers. So I returned to the Ilford brand, and this is along with the Gold Fibre Silk are now my choices for when I need matte and lustre surfaces, respectively, to print with

Excellent response to pigment ink.

This is an excellent matte paper with enough weight to call fine art paper. It has a very smooth surface. My auto cut worked without issues. I am impressed with the color rendering (my printer setting was "High"). I have not printed B&W or Grayscale on it yet but I expect good results because this paper handles contrast very well.

Beware Printer Limitations

My printer is a Canon Prograf 1000. It is an excellent printer, but to get optimum results one must select the proper icc profile AND the proper media type. When printing this paper you must select high density fine art paper. The only way to print this paper on my printer is to use the manual feed, which is designed to accommodate papers exceeding 299gms. The minimum size paper that can be manually fed is 8x10. If you select a smaller size cut sheet the printer will error out and freeze. I tried other media types but the output was poor. I called Canon for tech support and they verified the foregoing and recommended not trying to print this paper using other media types. Ilford is apparently aware of this issue. In summary, while this paper has a wonderful feel, one must be careful to check the printer will print this size.
