I use this paper for printing my own art photos and my partner's paint elevations (used for reference when painting theatrical sets). The images are accurately, clearly, and consistently reproduced.

I've been using this paper for years, initially printing maps. I still do some of that, but now also posters and art prints, first on an Epson 9000, and now a 9800, and a Canon PRO-1000.

Excellent value for a light-medium weight cardstock. In addition to having great accuracy when printing in color; in side-by-side testing between this paper, 60lb Polar Matte, and Aurora Art White using RR-supplied ICC profiles on a Canon Pro-2100 this paper got the most accurate color tones in slightly-toned grayscale photos we tested. (Using a colorimeter to compare LAB values)

This is beautiful paper and works perfectly for my greeting cards. Equally as wonderful is the customer service at Red River. My printer was incapable of working with my initial purchase and while customer service did their best to help me, they couldn't identify the problem. At this point, the President of the company took over. He was able to find a solution for me and because of his willingness to step in with determination to ensure my satisfaction, and the amazing quality of their products, Red River Paper has my forever loyalty!

I love using the 47# and 60# Premium Matte photo paper for my art. I do 5X7 in. alcohol ink pieces on yupo paper. I then scan them in to my computer, crop them to 6X4, print them on your photo paper, and put them on greeting cards. Your paper makes my art come alive!

I use this paper to print a calendar of my watercolor illustrations and I'm so pleased with it! I'll use it again for next year's calendar.

I use this paper with my Epson XP 950 and it's amazing. It's rewarding to snap a shot on my phone and present someone with an 11 X 17 mounted on 1/8" foam board (sticky one side). Also print from other sources. The colors are true and brilliant.

I do colored ink paintings, then scan them in to my computer, then use my prints for greeting cards. This paper makes the most beautiful prints I have ever seen. The colors are unbelievably vivid. They almost look three dimensional. I will never use any other paper for my prints.

I like this paper!!

I needed some 24 inch paper for my Epson 9600 and a friend told me about the Red River 47lb Premium Matte on sale. I have never bought anything before from Red River and the price was great so I thought I'd give it a try. Prints turned out beautiful. So today I bought some more Red River note cards and stuff. So far I really like the company.
