50lb. Arctic Polar Luster Double-sided (and its cousin 75lb. Arctic Polar Luster) are the finest luster papers on Earth. This version is ideal for photo books and portfolios.

Folds nicely

I use it to make cards. Concerned about cracking on fold. BUT it doesn't. Perfect thickness. Paper doesn't all have to be heavy weight. Nicer finish than Matte for a card. Very satisfied.

Used this paper to produce a Family History book. Not inexpensive but worth every penny. I was delighted with the finished project, it looked very professional!

Great light weight

This is a great lighter weight option for my quick prints. I can do test prints on a good quality paper that will give me a much better representation of what I am trying to do. The fact that it is double-sided makes it so that I can do two test prints on one page, which also then saves me money. I love the Arctic polar luster for its semi-gloss finish and minute amount of texture. It has a lovely quality for both color and black and white photos.

I'm using this paper to self-publish a limited number of books of my landscape photographs, using an Epson P900 printer. As image quality is the single most important factor, I'm delighted that this printer/paper combination is truly impressive, thereby justifying the paper's rather high price. Because this is a book, it's also important that the paper feels good in the hand, and it does. As another reviewer commented, I, too, found that my printer didn't, for whatever reason, handle multiple sheets well, so I've been feeding the sheets individually -- tedious, yes, but in my case, because I have the time, I'm OK with that.

Double sided paper

I am using this artic pro luster (double sided) to print family calendars. I print on 13x19 paper and fold in the middle, so each 1/2 page had a photo on one side and a calendar image behind it. This paper is truly double sided as I can turn a sheet over and see another photo, and I can see no difference in color or print accuracy. It also is heavy enough that you get no print through of the back side image. I print with a Canon Pro100 printer and I had seen recommendations that it will work best with 24 hour drying time. I believe 8 is a more accurate time to get fully dry, but don’t push the drying time. In order to fold the paper, I may contact the photo with significant drawing pressure and I see no signs on finger on the photos.

First time using this product. I'm printing calendars and I'm amazed at how lovely they turned out. I had a problem with my printer and their customer support was wonderful! I already placed another order for this product!

Nice Paper, but very pricey for books.

Must admit I like the paper for making my 12x12 photography books and give the paper itself a 5 star review. That being said, it comes at a very expensive cost at well over $2 per sheet. It used to be carried in 50 sheet boxes where the price was under $2 per sheet. At this time, I will stick with the UltraPro Satin Duo simply based on the cost at $1 per sheet.

This is my first time using Red River Paper, but it definitely won't be my last. This paper works great for making calendars. The images look fantastic! Everyone who I've given a calendar to loves theirs. So much that I need to order several more boxes. Do wish that it had more than 20 sheets for the price, but still fantastic paper.
