This is a high quality matte finish paper, which prints very nicely. A good alternative when you have a subject that benefits better from a matte finish versus a glossy or semi-gloss finish.

Can I use this paper to hot press transfer to T-Shirts? Can I use this paper with the Canon Pro-100 printer?
Asked by: michael
I have not tried this as a transfer medium as it was not designed for that. I would not suggest that it be used for transfers. The cold press cotton paper is thicker ((18mil), heavier (330 g/sqr-m) and semi-ridged paper compared to standard print papers. If the Canon Pro-100 will handle a straight through paper feed and the heavier paper, it should work with the right ICM color profile drivers.

Difference between Cold Press Bright and Hot Press Bright Epson Papers?
Asked by: Anonymous
Cold Press papers have texture, and the Hot Press papers are smooth. Think of it as pressing a hot iron on the material to smooth it out.

Unfortunately it is not compatible with the P700 since it is too wide. This Moab Entrada Rag Bright 190 would be compatible and similar in quality: https://bhpho.to/3r7pw8U

I have an Epson Stylus 2200 that still prints beautifully on Epson Velvet Fine Art paper. I bought some Epson Hot Press Bright, and found out there's no ICC profile for this paper on the Stylus 2200. The print comes out way off color using velvet FA settings. Yes, I did install the matte black ink. Any suggestions or workarounds for this problem?
Asked by: Cynthia
You would need to use a spectrophotometer to create a profile for it on your printer.

question

WHAT IS THE ARCHIVAL RATING ON HOT PRESS BRIGHT?
Asked by: Anonymous
My understanding is that the pigments used in Hot Press Bright and the paper itself are rated in excess of 200 years, but the issue is always modified by how the print will be displayed. There is some evidence that some fading will occur at certain light levels after about 50-60 years if exhibited in constant light over time. Also, there may be some differences in archival properties depending on characteristics of the print, with black and white images being having some differences with color prints, even when printed on Epson Hot Press Bright with Epson pigments. The bottom line is that prints are likely to outlast the print-maker, but after that, who knows. Probably too much is made over these issues now with digital images, since the file can be preserved and a reprint made should an image fade. No other art has ever had this possibility attached to it before. Many of Jackson Pollock's best paintings, for example, have already exhibited significant fading over time and restoration.
