Reviews for 47lb. Premium Matte

Great product, great support!

The product itself is fantastic... Love the way my prints look! But even more fantastic is the team behind the product. Due to a mix up in the web page, I received a roll with the wrong core size. Not only did they work with me to get it sorted, they also hooked me up with some adapters so I cuuld still use the paper... SO. MUCH. CUSTOMER. SERVICE!!

Beautiful Images and a Great Value
David Van Delinder
I use Red River Premium Matte paper for open-edition prints of my paintings and drawings. I am a seasoned graphic designer and fine artist and recognize fine imaging quality. The color fidelity, greyscale tonality and velvety blacks of this paper are superb. I print my affordable editions on a Canon Pixma Pro 100 from Photoshop with this paper. The color accuracy is virtually perfect. I highly recommend this media for high-quality economical prints. Red River is a delightful supplier. Their knowledge, product selection and service are unparalleled.

Perfect for my needs
Susan Guadagno
I use this versatile paper in several different ways. I do volume work for a small museum and they really appreciate my pricing, the quality of my products, and the quick turn around time for orders. Thank you Red River!

Great quality paper, excellent prints!
Rob Boullion
Excellent prints! Nice finish and faithful reproduction for our customer's CD package artwork, and a good price for the quality. I use the Red River Paper Premium Matte line in nearly all of our CD art productions - 32lb, 37lb, and 47lb, plus 50lb C2S on occasion - mostly for the inside tray cards, depending on package options. The choice of weight is based on color saturation of the customer's artwork: don't expect 32lb paper to handle heavy ink use without some warping, just get the thicker paper. No problems with the 47lb or the 50lb, and they still crease and fold well if you use the appropriate grain direction.

I use the 47lb. Red River Premium Matte to make contact sheets, and to print photographs used in composition of future art works. The weight is just right and the prints also give excellent color so I do not have to print on other papers. I use a fair amount of this paper on an annual basis. A great paper that I will continue to use!!!

Just what I needed!
Antoinette Ledzian
For years I've created my own greeting cards, trying various photo papers from Red River. Although I've always preferred the heavier card weight, my trusty Epson XP-430 workhorse will not accept anything 64lb and over, and my large Canon Pro-10 is not cost effective for printing my 7"x5" images. I referred to my *sample kit* for the best solution, and was thrilled with the amazing quality and weight of the 47lb. Premium Matte. Time for a change, and because I always include my own separate inserts, this was an excellent choice! Even my postage will be lower! I love the soft, velvety effects and, of course, the pre-scoring for a professional, clean fold. As always, the packaging/shipping is first class . . . Thank you again, Red River, for enhancing my photographic process!

This paper is perfect when you need something a little thinner than the 60 lb. Polar.

Excellent print quality on thinner paper
Verified Buyer
Excellent print quality on thinner paper. I use it for proofs and contact sheets where I don’t have to spend a lot of money for mark-up and decision making, but still want excellent print quality.

Fine Art Prints and Note Cards

I have used Red River matte papers for five years making prints for sale at art fairs. These papers produce beautiful, accurate, consistant color on my Canon Pro9000 printer, and previously on a Canon S9000 printer. I stay in touch with my customers, and have no reports of fading or color shift. Service and delivery are reliable and lightning fast. Very pleased. Thanks, Red River!
