50lb. Premium Matte Double-sided


50lb. Premium Matte Double-sided is a professional grade photo matte inkjet paper. At 9mil thickness and 185gsm weight, Premium Matte is thicker and heavier than retail brand premium matte papers. It is the perfect weight and thickness to convey superior quality and allow the paper to handle the heavy ink coverage. The surface is ultra-smooth, non-reflective, and bright white.

50# Double Sided with Epson ET-7750

Vivid colors from my Epson ET-7750. Colors are bright and the images are very professional looking. Very pleased. Best results if you wait a few minutes before printing reverse side.

I use the 50lb matte paper for a lot of my graphic design projects. I recommend for students and professionals. I use a third party pigment ink system and it holds well with this paper.

Book Makers BEWARE

If you plan to score-&-fold these double-sided papers for books, Red River just informed me, “... we do not keep track of the grain direction for all of those papers, unless noted ...” (!!!) I designed a series of books specifically so they could be be printed using 100% of the 50 lb., 17" x 22" double-sided Premier paper (assuming industry standard “grain Long” sheets). The RR ordering page did not indicate the paper would be “grain Short.” So now I have to re-orient my spreads to print correctly, and throw away 33% of each sheet. And do a lot of extra trimming. Or completely re-design my book series. I'm so sorry it is too much trouble for Red River to "keep track" of the grain on "all those papers." (5 stars for the paper itself, but zero stars for RRs unhelpful paper grain policy)

This product gave my greeting cards an amazing look and feel. I was able to print high dpi (quality) cards without seeing them warp. The results were stunning.

Literally never buying Epson again, the brightness plus the quality and the price don't even seem to add up.

Blown away with the quality!

I bought this specifically for printing my own video game covers on the recommendation from the community. When I first took a look at this paper firsthand I couldn't really see what the big deal was. It looked nice and had a smooth feel but I thought what's so special about it? After my first printing I now know. This paper took the ink like a champ without any wrinkling or bleeding and the results looks absolutely stunning. I didn't know my printer (HP Officejet Pro 6010) could produce results like this. I can't overstate how much I now recommend this product.

Fantastic for books!

This double-sided paper makes for a great thickness in printing books with graphics, illustrations, and photos. It's just opaque enough to still seem bright white from one side with only text on it, and not really see the ink on the other side of the page that has a photo printed on it. Love it!

Perfect for Books!

I've been using this paper to print my books for years now and every one of them looks amazing! The ink doesn't bleed through to the other side (even with the 32lb!) and I always get positive reviews on the feel of the paper. I always recommend this to other book makers!

Folder Note Card Images

I use Greeting Card Designer and Photoshop to print 2 folded note cards on each 8.5x11 sheet of this paper. It is better card stock than Epson's DS matte paper, and RRP's shipping insures your paper arrives unscathed.

Red River has a broad range of very competitively priced papers that print well with these inksets."
