Great products, great service and help.

I am relatively new to photography as a hobby, and enjoy printing and framing. the photography and printing part of my hobby was ok, but I quickly found out that taking a good picture is easy compared to getting that good photo printed. I was having trouble with the quality of my prints. I could never seem to get it right.I purchased a new printer, but still could never get the quality I wanted. After researching, I came across RR Paper. Their selections of papers are great, I ordered a sample kit, and was really impressed. They provide all profiles and give instructions on installing them. I highly recommend this company. Add together their products, service and technical help, and you have one great company. Thanks.
