How to Choose the Best Photo Paper

For optimal results printing photos and images, the first step is to decide whether you prefer a matte photo paper, semigloss, metallic or glossy paper finish for a more vibrant image. If you are new to printing and want to try a variety, we recommend that you first order our photo paper sample kits. Once you have an idea of what type of surface you like photos printed with, select the weight that you want that will work well with your printer. Smaller front-feed printers should only use paper that is lighter than 60lb/230gsm while top or back feed inkjet printers are designed to handle heavier papers. If you want further recommendations, check out our Shop photo paper by Printer and Shop photo paper by Project pages.

Red River vs Retail Brands

With Red River Paper, you get inks, products and supplies that are as good as or better than the major retail brands like Epson, Canon, and HP at a great price. We buy our papers from some of the same sources as the big names. The difference is that our brand brings the paper direct to you with only one stop on the way from the paper mill - our manufacturing facility in Dallas, Texas. You’ll find a range of paper products available such as glossy photo paper, metallic finish, archival grade satin, double sided and many more.

Photo paper from Red River Paper is carefully chosen to meet not only our standards and level of detail, but yours as well. We print test with many, if not all, of the inkjet printer models available from Epson, Canon, and HP. Not sure which paper you need?

Compare our quality, service, support, and shipping speed and you will love buying from our Red River store. Don’t believe us? Check out a few of our customer reviews below.

Types of Photo Paper

Not all types of inkjet paper are the same. This sounds obvious, but you might be surprised by how many questions we receive about the difference between satin and matte, or matte finish and art paper, paper brightness, etc. Because it is so important to consider which surface will make your projects look their best, we're going to look at each type of inkjet paper, and what types of images are suited to each.

You can think of this as the 40,000 foot view of the different paper types, and what you should know about each choosing one for different types of projects.

Editor's Note: There are thousands of subjects, genres, and topics of interest in the world of photography. Our take on the different types of inkjet paper finishes and best images takes years of customer feedback and printing into account. However, we will never say you should not use one finish or another for printing photos. The choice is ultimately yours to make and enjoy.

In addition to our leading paper combination, customers can also find a wealth of print and ink resources including reviews of the best photo printers from Canon, Epson and HP as well as guides covering inkjet and laser printers.
