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.
