Legion/Bogen

“While I always relied on Somerset Photo Enhanced Velvet paper for brilliant color and an exquisite tactile texture for exhibition of my flower photographs (from SEARCHINGS: Secret Landscapes of Flowers) and black-and-white nudes, it was in my most recent exhibition of all-white flowers, with fantastic subtleties of shades of white, that the paper exceeded even my expectations. Legion Matte is often my choice for black and white, giving deep blacks, and nothing compares to Legion Silk for matchprints rendering a perfect accuracy from which to reproduce commercially. I consider these papers to be an integral part of my photography.”

Moab

“My passion is creating photographs. I have worked with Moab paper for a year, and I’m completely impressed. I print all images on Entrada 300 Bright. Entrada truly stays consistent to the color gamut, providing a clean, crisp rendition, and also offers great color saturation and faithfully reproduces the images as seen on-screen, which is ideal in bringing a project to life. The quality, texture, and finish of the paper really flatters the portraits.”

Oriental

“Being a longtime and devoted user of Oriental’s black-and-white darkroom paper, Oriental Seagull, I was delighted when they entered the digital paper market. Their current line consists of a matte (both resin- and fiber-based), a glossy film, a canvas, and a glossy (both resin- and fiber-based). Their fiber-based glossy is currently my paper of choice for images that require that type of paper surface. The base is the whitest on the market, which I like, and I’m not concerned about the presence of optical brighteners. The paper is very sharp, gives excellent skin tone reproduction, and very high Dmax (black). I’m printing on both the Epson 4800 and 9800 using the ColorBurst XProof RIP with custom linearization and custom profiles. The results surpass any other color reproduction I have seen in my career. And the amazing part is that it is only going to get better!”

Permajet

“I vividly recall the first monochrome print produced by my printer using PermaJet’s Fibre Base Gloss. I was stunned by the tonal range, astounding Dmax, and similarity to my traditional silver prints. I had found the ideal fine-art paper for my work and reached a point where I would not need to print in a darkroom again. I never compromise my print quality, and PermaJet has not compromised with this paper. It’s a perfect match.”

Red River Paper

“For elegant custom note cards, Aurora Fine Art Greeting Cards by Red River Paper is my favorite choice. Available in popular note card sizes, cut sheets are available in 7"x10" (folds to 5"x7" A7 size) and 6.25"x9" (folds to 4.25"x6.25" A6 size), with each sheet precision-scored for clean and easy folding—all of which speeds up my workflow by eliminating custom cutting and awkward folding. Made of fine 100% cotton rag content, Aurora offers the look and feel of fine-art paper and has a high-quality inkjet coating to produce crisp color tones on both sides. The semi-smooth surface is available in Natural or White tone; is acid- and lignin-free; and is fully compatible with my Epson printers and inks.”

Sihl USA

“Four years ago, after 10 years of running Iris prints, I discovered the joy of Sihl. The microporous coating is nothing short of remarkable. It’s great color and durability that can’t be beat! We use Supersorb (gloss and satin) for both proofs and comps. Clients love the heft, and when manually spray-mounted to Letramax, it shows absolutely no signs of handling. For fine art, the canvas is a joy to stretch, and liquid lam gives it incredible depth.”
