26lb Colorjet - Matte Photo Paper
Verified Buyer
This is my GO TO paper! I have two printers, an Epson EcoTank and an Epson Artisan. This paper works gives me high quality, color rich prints from my EcoTank. I'm a digital scrapbooker and junk journal maker and this is a great, lightweight paper for my projects. I wish it was available in a double-sided option because I would buy that too!

The paper makes the difference
Jim Cameron
Verified Buyer
I bought this paper on a whim to produce labels for my artisan chocolates. WOW what a difference great paper makes. I did have an issue with making certain I was printing on the correct side. At first I didn't realize it was only coated on one side. RRPC has a sheet that tells you how to tell which side is coated (not easy) Now that I figured that out with RRPC's help, the paper is great.

Order it.
I have been looking for the right paper for a long time now. Drew helped me. He recommended the 26-lb. ColorJet and it’s turned out to be perfect for my needs (I use it in an Xerox). The standards that are kept in the production of this paper were also very important to me, not just the paper itself, and that has turned out to be perfect as well. I was incredulous when I actually found something that fit my requirements. I gotta say, what strikes me most is how Drew went above and beyond to get the paper to me, even though my request was irregular. He did it. And then he went above that, too. Instant loyal customer. This company gives me hope for humanity, no lie.

Phenomenal Quality
Nomnivore Games
The coating applied to this paper really is spectacular. I didn't believe the stark contrast until I sent a print through myself. Just as Yangos mentions: "The best paper for making Buttons! They are just the right thickness for the button machines and the colors print super crisp and vivid than the normal copy paper very great quality!"

Great Lightweight Paper
Cheryl Grieb
I have bought many different types of paper for my journals. This paper met all of my expectations and beyond. It soaks up the ink like a sponge. That is what I look for because I want vibrant color and 3D quality for my journal pages. Yes, if there is too much ink, the paper will curl a little or lose its shape. I lay it aside to dry and then press it in a book if it is a problem. The colors are so deep and vibrant. I just love this paper.

nice paper, not nice boxing
I love the paper! Why I give 3 stars? I give 3 stars because my paper doesn't come with a package box where the paper can be stored. I wouldn't say this is cheap paper, they are more expensive than normal plain paper and I'm not gonna use the 250 sheets all in one day, so it should come in some kind of box like other red river paper. Instead, it comes in a plastic wrap with some holes on the corner which is so bad for the paper because it can get indented especially the corners.

Every Day Printing...
I have been using the 26lb Colorjet paper for my everyday printing needs. I use it on both my Epson Pigment Printers (Stylus Photo R1800 and Stylus Pro 7600). My documents and photos print very sharp with good colors on the Coated side. I have found that I can print Double sided documents on the 26lb colorJet paper as long as the documents contain only simple text and/or simple graphics. / High resolution photos have a tendency to bleed through and/or curl the 26lb ColorJet paper therefore, I cannot recommend this paper for high resoluton Photos for anythg other than proof or Draft prints

Best Value

I produce work for a non-profit that requires the most cost effective approach. Every penny saved is a penny put to good use! The 26lb Red River paper meets our needs in printing event photos that are presented to participants. Used in conjunction with the Cobra Inkjet System (CISS continuous ink supply system) we can keep our costs to the lowest point while maintaining an impressive quality. We also use the UltraPro gloss papers and the 32lb Prem Matte 2 sided, both of these with the Cobra System offer an economical path to top quality output.
