For fine art photographers looking for a matte medium that can deliver a wide color gamut and high brightness, Epson has developed Cold Press Natural Paper. Made from 100% cotton rag and using a cold press production technique, this paper features a textured matte finish. The heavy weight of 340 gsm, thickness of 21 mil, and opacity of 98% further give this paper the look and feel of a true fine art paper. Also, by omitting optical brightening agents, this media will feature a more natural coloration. Designed for longevity, Cold Press Natural is free of acid, lignin, and chlorine and is pH buffered.

Epson S042301 reviews

Cold Press Natural Paper (17 x 22", 25 Sheets) is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 9.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Superb color rendering I've been photographing for over 60 years and printing digitally for 16. This paper is my new favorite among all the professional grade art papers I've tried. The color gamut is wide and the rendering of colors accurate. The moderate texture adds depth to my images and I've used them in multiple exhibitions over the last two years. This paper is heavy but not so much that it won't bend a little (340 gsm). In two years I've seen no color shifts although this is not enough time for archival testing. I've compared this with Canson Infinity and Rives papers and believe the Epson to be superior.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It's De-Lovely The top of the line Epson papers are excellent. This is a beautifully textured, durable paper. Even with the texture of the cold press papers detail is sharp. Creamy color of the Natural paper should be taken into account in re: color of your photos. ICC color profile is quite accurate--with my Epson 3880 printer. It is a bit annoying that the texture on both sides of the paper is virtually identical and, although there is a tag on the sleeve the paper is packed in telling you which side to print, you have to pay too much attention to this. Small point, but it shouldn't be an issue.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great paper for landscape images I used this paper to print images I shot in the south west (e.g., Cedar Breaks,Grand Canyon, Zion, Bryce, Canyonlands,Antelope Canyon etc). The textured matte provided razor sharp detail of the rocks and sand. the tonal range for highlights (snow covered red mountains) and shadow- (inside canyons) was exceptional. I'm not sure I would use it for portraits (I have not tried it yet), but I think it is an outstanding option for landscapes! The reproduction of color was also spot on. I would not hesitate to recommend this paper for landscapes

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Paper- Will buy again *** I loved the feel and quality of this paper. Not super bright, just perfect. B&H packed the boxes well and the paper itself comes packed very well. Shipping was fast and even though the outer carton was gouged out during shipping there was no damage to the product boxes. I did get the epson rebate pretty quick too. *** I bought 3 boxes, one turned out to be not so great (curling on the ends) which I hope is the exception and was probably just bad stock or something. Strangely enough it had the same batch number as the other two boxes but gave me a very bad experience printing on my 4900; the printing head would tear and crack the trailing edge on one side - very weird. Wasted 13 sheets and ink trying to figure the problem out. By the time I got around to the bad box it was past the 30 day B&H return policy, so hopefully Epson will replace it. Hence the 4 stars and not 5.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I would buy this product again I love the texture. It is just right amount. The weight is perfect just like the Hot Press.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderfull results This paper really makes my photographs pop. The texture adds to the visage and some of the prints almost look as if they were paintings. Previously I had been using ultra presentation matte paper, which is still great, but after seeing the cold press, I will have to consider carefully before going back. The results are truly museum quality.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Best Yet Hands down the best paper Ive ever printed on. My prints come to life with the depth and gradations from the darkest blacks to the highlights. The tooth to the paper makes it hard to put down.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful paper in color or B&W I had printed on the Epson Cold Press Bright previously (and liked it very much, especially for color) but only recently tried the Cold Press Natural. I am finding this paper to be very nice as well, and I expect to use it for B&W especially.
