Paper Buying Guide

Epson Photo Paper Glossy

What you get at the store, servicable quality

Epson Ultra Photo Paper Glossy

Thicker, heavier paper stock, feels better in hands

Epson Ultra Photo Paper Luster

A semi glass with a textured finish, my goto value paper

Epson Ultra Paper Premium Matte

Zero gloss, but the color gamut of the below matte papers are better

Epson Hot Press Paper

Cotton based paper with matte finish, very heavy, good color gamut.  Hot press means it is super smooth. Paper color is slightly warmer. Great for nature and landscape. 

Epson Cold Press Paper

like above but with a more textured matte finish

Epson Velvet Fine Art Paper

Cotton based paper with matte finish with a watercolor paper- type texture

Epson Exhibition Fiber Based Paper

Very heavy, fiber based paper, resembles darkroom style photographic prints, great for exhibitions, deep blacks and subtle tonal gradations make this the best paper for black and white.  Also good for portraits. 

Third Party brands I support

Red River Metallic Paper

a high gloss finish and a pearlescent base stock that yields an elegant iridescence in your images. Great for images of archetecure, cars, and other high contrast images.  

Red River Baryta 

Kind of like a semigloss version of the Epson Fiber paper, better suited for color printing with a warm white paper color. 

Red River Canvas Paper

If you want that painterly look

more options from Red River Paper

Hanemuhle makes probably the best, thickest, most premium paper out there.  If I were going into a museum or new york gallery, I might splurge on this stuff.
