Looked like typical matte paper until I ran it through my Epson R1900 and printed a black and white image of my fiancée and I and wow was I amazed. The paper felt good in my hands. The ILFORD Galerie Prestige Smooth Pearl photography paper.
First of all iLFORD provides ICC profiles to ensure the closest color accuracy. I am just amazed of the quality of this paper
A FEW OF THE FEATURES I FOUND MOST USEFUL FOR PHOTOGRAPHERS: (view a full listing at the manufacturer website)
- Instant dry nanoporous surface
- High photographic image quality and consistency
- Heavyweight look and feel of a traditional photograph
- Compatibility with pigment and dye-based inkjet printers
If you want to provide your clients with high quality prints, then high quality paper is a must and the iLFORD Galerie Prestige photography paper surely fit the bill. It might seem a little more than your typical paper brand but again why do you want typical.
