Epson S042097 reviews

Velvet Fine Art Paper (17 x 22", 25 Sheets) is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 58.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Love this paper but beware..... This paper has the look and feel of fiber based paper and makes beautiful prints with the 3880. However, if you take out a few sheets and forget which side is up and how it came out of the box it is IMPOSSIBLE to tell the printing side from the back side. This paper is not double sided!!! So you can really get frustrated trying to figure which side is which and you can waste a ton of paper printing on the wrong side. I started putting a light pencil mark in the corner of the up side to make sure I didn't make a mistake.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent for fine art B&W printing I use this paper to print black and white photos on an Epson Stylus Pro 2880. I order Velvet in the 17x22 size and use a rotary trimmer to cut it into 8.5x11 sheets. This gives me 100 sheets at 8.5x11 for $ rather than buying it at that size for a significant amount more. It is a great paper--for smaller prints. Despite having a noticable texture, it prints with exceptional clarity. For large prints I use Epson's Ultrasmooth, as a 13x19 sheet of it will more easily go through the rear manual feed of the 2880 whereas the Velvet seems to have a problem going through. B&H is where I get pretty much everything now--camera bodies, lenses, printers, new iMac (their price was the best available,even with an academic discount elsewhere), paper, ink, cables, etc.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful paper! This is a beautiful paper. I have used it both for a large print in which I combined photographs and words and for prints in which I wanted a matte textured finish for a photograph. It is exactly what I had in mind. The only problem I had with it was that the instructions that came with it say to print on the whiter side and I have a hard time seeing that one side is whiter than the other, which makes me wonder if the instructions are wrong and it can be used on either side? Or whether I'm just not seeing the difference? At any rate, I'm very happy with the prints I've made from it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Product exceeded my expectation This was my first use of an Epson fine art paper. In the course of the past 50 years of my work I have used most of the established fine art papers for watercolor, pen & ink, pencil and even pen plotted drawings. Usage has ranged from Arches for watercolor and Strathmore for pen & ink. With the advent of high quality digital printing I was not aware that Epson had managed to have a fine art quality paper tailored for compatibility with their printers. This paper has exceeded my expectation and I will re-order the paper.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy way to determine printing side This is my paper of choice for prints of my artwork as well as for photographs. Texture, clarity, and colors make it difficult to tell between original art and the print -- in fact, the print sometimes looks better. For those who have difficulty determining which side is the print side, there is an easy way to tell. If you carefully hold the edges of the short sides of the paper and gently pull them toward the center, kind of rolling the paper without actually bending it, the two sides will come together easily if the print side is up. If the nonprint side is up, there will be some resistance. Thus, the paper is more flexible for the way it rolls through the printer. I test every sheet before loading it in the printer, even if the orientation of the package hasn't changed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from High quality fine art I use this paper for fine art prints. It has a nice texture and a good weight at 260 gsm. I formerly used Hahnemuhle William Turner 190 gsm paper, which I like very much. The Velvet paper is heavier, with similar qualities to the William Turner. I buy the 17 x 22 sheets and cut them to 11 x 17 for most of my prints. The result is an equally fine quality paper at a lower cost than the Hahnemuhle William Turner. I am very pleased. I think Epson has some of the finest papers available today.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from May be $ a piece, but it is worth it! If you use this product correctly, with high end ink, printer, formating, and color corrected monetor this paper will shine every time. Literally! This is not a glossy paper, but it doesn't need to be. If there is any metal or reflective surfice in your image somehow the paper helps it to actually appear glossy and metalic like. The only thing that is difficult with this paper is that any oil from your fingers will stay on the paper. Make sure you wear archival gloves when touching any part of the paper or your print will br ruined.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful! I absolutely love Epson's Velvet Fine Art Paper for the work I do. Because the paper absorbs ink, images made on Velvet have a perceptible depth to them, much like my platinum prints from film. Also, this paper yields beautiful, velvety (appropriately enough) blacks and vivid colors. I use it for landscape photography, as well as portraiture and still lifes, and it makes a beautiful base for black and white prints, giving them a completely different feel from those make on glossy paper. The paper has a subtle texture that's not at all obtrusive and actually accentuates most prints. The only downside to this paper is that there's not an obvious face or back side, but it must be printed on the face side. I keep track by only removing one sheet at a time from the inner package and keeping it with the seal side up, which means the face side is always up, too.
