With MediaStreet inks

A SUPERB paper. I use it for all my fine art prints. I use Epson printers and the Enhanced Generations inks from MediaStreet, with a continuous inking system. I couldn't be happier!

Compatible with Your Printer

Aurora's takes advantage of the latest in coating technology. You can use this paper with Epson, Canon, and HP printers. For long lasting prints, use pigment inks like Epson's UltraChrome and UltraChrome K3 system. While Aurora will work with 3rd party inks, we encourage you to try it before making a large purchase.

ICC profiles are available for Epson and Canon printers with manufacturers ink.

Outstanding!

I am extremely pleased with the Aurora Art White paper. I print on an Epson Stylus Pro 4880 and it is the first matte fine art paper I have used that reproduces my fine art reproductions accurately with minimal to no tweaking. If all your fine art papers perform this well I'm a customer for life!

Printing Hints

General

  • Lightly brush off sheets with soft brush before printing. This will remove any debris or loose fibers from surface of sheet
  • If paper is curled, feed with curl facing up. Or, give a stack of paper a slight bend the opposite direction just before feeding.

Epson UltraChrome and UltraChrome K3 printers (and other pigment inks)

  • Allow prints to dry overnight before placing in album, book, or otherwise heavy handling
  • Be especially careful if your prints have heavy/dark black areas. Black Epson pigment inks leave a very thin layer of dry ink on the surface of art papers when dry. This material can come off on fingers or other sheets of paper. Handle these prints with care or consider spraying them if they will be handled often. Try PremierArt spray available at various web stores.
  • Use an ICC profile for best color reproduction. Red River offers profiles for Canon and Epson printers at no charge.
  • Epson ICC profiles - these profiles are well built and robust. You can use the Epson Velvet Fine Art profile with Aurora if necessary. We recommend trying it to get a feel for which profile (Red River or Epson) that you like for your work.

Aurora Art Natural

This paper has become my standard for both color and black and white. It is smooth, cottony and silky to the touch, and takes all pigment inks well. I use the Epson 3800, and I turn the color density down by 15-25%, saving considerable ink, still getting fine color and excellent blacks.
