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 was a bit hesitant to order 47 lb for my art cards but they printed beautifully and were not flimsy at all. What a difference paper makes in the quality of an art card. Just make sure that you print on correct side and your colors will look like the original Art. Printing on a Canon MX922. Just ordered the linen and can't wait to see the results. I'm a 75 year old newby in printing cards to sell.

Excellent for Art Posters

I needed an lightweight, rollable paper for making inexpensive art prints to sell at an outdoor art fair. This paper is now one of my favorites. It's gorgeous for art prints and B&W photos--very crisp & sharp with good color. Durable enough to roll, cheap enough to sell as a wall poster (10x15 on a 13x19 sheet with a "matlike" white border). Really happy with this paper. I'm using the 45lb Zeppelin semigloss for color photo prints, also with fantastic results.

Great product

I recently ordered these cards and they arrived in just a few days, very well packaged and in perfect condition. Yesterday we printed my first ever cards and I am so pleased with the results -- they look very professional. Thank you very much for the tips and instructions on formatting and printing that came with the product as well as the wealth of information that can be found on your site. If my sales are successful, I will definitely be back as I doubt the quality and price could be beat (or even equaled) elsewhere. P.S. I do suggest first time users read all instructions carefully -- we initially printed on the wrong side of the cards and though the print quality would have been fine for a text message, it was disappointing for photos. Imagine our delight when we discovered how easy it was to get great-looking photo print results :)
