The Right Paper is Crucial

By Mark

Printing your photos on the right paper is crucial to the finished artwork. I have been using this paper to print my best black and white photos. The tones, and the subtle gradation of tones from white to deep blacks, really makes the prints stand out. I also appreciate the effect that adding some texture to the print surface makes. If you want to see a difference in your finished work then I recommend that you try moving from the traditional, glossy/luster prints and go for a print on slightly textured, matt paper.

I use it mainly to print artworks.

Great color reproduction, slight texture. I do have some flaking once in a while.

Signature Worthy, indeed

By Carole

After researching and reading reviews of dozens of papers, I opted to print a pre-dawn landscape, shot on a foggy morning, on Epson Signature Worthy Cold Press Bright, as other photographers had raved about its rendering of soft, dreamy landscapes . . . and immediately understood why they were so enthusiastic. I ended up printing the image on many different papers, but the Signature Worthy Cold Press Bright was by far the best for capturing the mood of early morning twilight in the Smokey Mountains. The resulting prints look like the watercolors I paint in my mind but never could get on paper. I entered a print in a competition, and received a perfect score. I do have one complaint, which is that the paper is not merely fiddly to load, as one reviewer put it, but sometimes exasperating. It has a tendency to curl slightly at the edges, which makes it difficult to insert in the Fine Art feeder of my Epson SureColor P800. Still, the results are so striking that I would rather fiddle and take my time to print it on this paper than on any other I have tried.

Really Nice Paper

I sold my painterly print Absentee Ballot 2020 at The Torpedo Factory in Alexandria, VA and was asked to provide another for display/sale. This time I printed on the Epson Cold Press Bright and was very pleased with the rich colors and deep blacks. Hopefully it will generate another sale!

How is this different from Epson Signature Worthy cold press bright, which I see only as part of a sample pack of SW papers?
Asked by: Carole
This is the same paper that is included in the Sample Pack. The only thing is that the image of this box is outdated & the new box is a black box with a image.

question

Does anyone know what Canon printer settings (PROGRAF PRO-1000) to use for this paper? Because they're competitors, there's no ICC profile, but there should be a standard setting that should work.
Asked by: Dean G.
Go on Epsom's site, find out the Media Type and paper profile, the compare with a similar paper that Canon makes. Input those settings and you should be fine. It might be wise to buy a box of 8 1/2 x 11 Cold Press to do test prints on until you dial your settings in. I did that when I printed my portfolio. Best of Luck.
