Ilford 2002106 reviews

GALERIE Prestige Gold Fibre Silk Paper (17 x 22", 25 Sheets) is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 15.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from True Photographic Paper When opening up the package the nostalgic smell brings me back to the days in the chemistry darkroom. Aside from that the wide color gamut combined with true archival qualities and the traditional look of a photograph makes this paper a no-brainer and well worth the premium costs. The only thing against this paper is that it is very fragile and scratches very easily. Prompt framing or individual sleeves are highly recommended. Its my goto fine art paper for use in my Epson SP 4900 when a silk surface is required.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Go For The Gold: It's Gorgeous!!! I use this print paper to make gorgeous prints. It is a remarkable paper, rendering both color and detail with great accuracy and precision. I have been using another top brand for a while but am switching back to GOLD after printing comparisons. It has a slight warm tint to it so those who are looking for pure white will not find it here.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good darkroom-like results for b & w Seems to be the default paper among my fellow ICP students this semester, both for color and b & w. We all print from Epson 3880. An old darkroom teacher of mine looked at my prints and thought they were from the darkroom. Great stuff.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just Superb! I have used this paper when producing large gallery prints, so I knew how fabulous it is! Now that I am printing 17 x 22 prints on my Epson 3880 SW Stylus Pro, I am overwhelmed! Truly exceptional qualities to this paper... which is now my ONLY paper of choice! I'm ordering more this week! Oh... and B & H is as fabulous as the printer and paper!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sharp and Bright! I would put this paper up with Epson Exhibition Fiber in terms of brightness and sharpness...though not as heavy, it does have a very fine feel...maybe moreso than the Exhibition Fiber. This paper is excellent for both color and black and whites, and is my go-to paper for test prints. You can't go wrong with this one!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Paper on the Market I printed professionally for many years in a commercial darkroom setting and this paper is as close to some of the papers I used in those years. Its the absolute best I have used and I have used many. Unfortunately it arrived with damaged corners AGAIN. B&H needs to get there shipping problems worked out.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent semi-gloss photo paper GFS is an excellent semi-gloss photo paper. I use it for most of my work, both B&W and color. I did need a custom profile using it with an Epson 3880 printer, the one Ilford supplied was not so great, surprising since the Iford profile for the Epson 2200 was very good. I highly recommend it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for fine black and white prints from film scans So heavy and luxurious it's exciting just to hold it. Among the best commonly-available papers for fine inkjet prints. I use it with an EPSON 3880 for black and white prints of medium format film scans, it's my ideal combination.
