We put together a "basics" guide to black & white printing.
Recommended Papers for Black & White Printing
The choice of paper for black & white printing is subjective and personal. While there are guidelines for what “looks good” with grayscales, in the end the choice depends on your likes and needs.
Red River's line of Premium Photographic inkjet media includes a number of papers popular for black & white printing. While there are no black & white specific inkjet media on the market, some are better than others at the task.
Cool vs. Warm Tone Inkjet Papers
Inkjet papers can be classified as either warm or cool tone. Cool denotes more blue cast and warm papers are yellowish. All paper is warm tone until chemical brighteners and whiteners are added to make them bluer, which the human eye perceives as bright white.
