Ultra Premium Photo Paper Luster (8.5 x 11", 50 Sheets) is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 555.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice paper, well worth the modest cost This is a very good paper for production use (weddings, portraits, etc.) where a great number of prints will be produced and cost is a driving factor. I use it as a proofing material to check colors, densities, dust and other flaws, etc., before printing on a gallery sheet, eg, Epson Exhibition Fiber. I find if I push and tweak versions of a print until it looks really good on low-cost Utra-Premium Luster, it looks fabulous on the first expensive sheet of EFP. And you've saved a bundle getting there. UPL is a little cooler and less brilliant than EFP and the blacks aren't quite as saturated, but it's still pretty darn good for the money.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Luster Paper for Epson Printers I bought this just to have some media to run through my new Epson Stylus Pro 4880. I have fallen absolutely in love with it. The gloss differential around highlights is nearly invisible, and the structure of the surface finish makes it look exactly like a lab print. It works equally well for both color and black&white, though I found the base paper color is a little cool for my tastes for pure black&white printing. Otherwise, there is nothing even close to negative to say about this paper. It feels and looks just like a lab print, and it handles perfectly through the feed tray on the 4880. Overall, a great paper at a very good price!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Recommended for Beginning Printers While I've been photographing for a long time, I started doing my own printing about six months ago. I decided to pick one paper and stick with it through my learning process and the paper I selected is Ultra Premium Luster. First, its an excellent all around paper. I like the subtle sheen of Luster and am quite happy with this paper for both color and monochrome printing with my Epson R3000. Finally, the paper is reasonably priced enabling me to do more printing than I might otherwise do in my learning process. I'm convinced my decision to pick a single paper has made my learning much faster than it would otherwise have been. And, I'm proud of the quality of my prints on Ultra Premium Luster.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is my new go to paper I have been using Ultra Premium Luster Photo Paper 13 X 19 for several months so I am already familiar with its quality. This is an excellent paper with a surface similar to traditional photo prints. I am mainly printing b&w and multi-tone images on an Epson 4880. I get a very wide tonal range with crisp detail and consistant output. Subjects range from hard product, urban enviornment, landscapes and portrait. My color work is primarily portrait and again results are very good. Inks dry quickly with no issues of smudging and I've never had a problem with paper jamming. I highly recommend this paper for a great price to quality value.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Professional Paper Epson Ultra Premium Luster paper will give your portraits a truley professional look and feel. I do my own printing on some portrait work and send large orders to a pro lab. The quality of the Epson paper matches Kodaks Luster paper. I print only 8x10s with an Epson R380 photo printer with Epson Luster paper and you cannot tell the difference between what I print and the labs prints. Luster paper helps hide minor imperfections in your portraits. For a professional look for home portrait work, Epson Ultra Premium Luster paper is for you.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Closest thing to a real photograph I have heard many photographers say this texture of Epson premium luster photo paper is the closest thing to old photographs. I agree. Once printed on my Epson printer the prints are amazing. Its shiny, but has this luster also when you turn your print left and right you can see the luster part, very cool. This is what i use for my highest quality art prints. However sometimes when you print a photo and put it under glass you don't want the luster part, just glossy. 9 out of ten times i use the Premium luster photo paper. That other one time i still use Epson Premium glossy paper. I think this is the highest quality photo paper you can buy for an Epson Printer!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome Paper This paper is very versatile. What I really like about it is the fact that it is luster. Glossy is too shiny, and matte seems like it's missing something, but Luster gives your photos a nice texture. Fingerprints are also less noticable. Whatever size paper you're using, Epson Luster is just awesome. I use this paper with an epson printer and the quality is superb. The colors are vibrant and true. I use it for everything, from personal photos to professional photos. They say the paper is instant drying, which I guess is true to a certain extent. Nothing smears or smudges coming right from the printer, but when I took photo classes, my photo teachers would always tell us to lay the photos out flat to dry for a day, so the ink sets making the photo last longer. But as I said, the best thing about this luster paper is the subtle texture.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Color, Detail, and Presentation I used this on a documentary project for college and i'm very pleased, to say the least. I printed with an Epson 2200 printer and the sharpness and color accuracy were right on. A great buy for anyone looking to present prints in a brightly lit area. The luster finish allows for a similar depth of tones and detail while avoiding its gloss and sheen. One small heartbreak I experienced - one that I assume anyone who did what I did would - was how easily the prints scratch. I dropped it on the ground, and though I lifted it very very carefully, it still was scuffed from the initial impact. I had to reprint, but that did afford me a chance to witness firsthand how consistently the paper prints.
