Reviews for 60lb. Polar Matte Big Sheets

This is my go to paper!
I love this paper so much! It works so well with the EPSON ET series and those color came out bright, vibrant and beautiful! I couldn't have asked for a better paper for art prints!

Consistent quality and perfect color
Rodney Steele
I've used the notecards for three years and I'm very impressed with how true the colors are right out of the printer. I package the cards and envelopes together and they are always popular at my exhibits and shows. Folks are excited to see how well the images match my large prints and it gives them purchasing options. I highly recommend them.

Excellent Choice for Photo Card
Mike Plewd
Just spent the day printing cards for gifts. Polar Matte 60lb is doing an excellent job for me. I really like the surface. I was afraid the matte name meant a heavily textured paper. In fact it is much more like my favorite darkroom paper, Ilford Multigrade FB glossy not ferrotyped. 60 lb would be a little light for fine art enlargements but it is perfect for cards. I use an Epson Eco Tank printer and have been struggling to get neutral B&W prints but on Polar Matte everything is fine. That's good news. All this and the price is right. Nice going Red River.

Great paper :)
The 60lb polar matte is perfect for my artistic needs if you prefer a smooth matte finish with no sheen. The weight is sturdy. The packaging is very good with added padding. The customer service is excellent when I contacted RRP.

I print only black and white images using Piezography inks and software. I love this paper for its smooth surface and bright white color.

Polar Matte Rolls
Mel Stone
I shoot panos… normally I was limited to printing on17by22… but, when I bought an Epson P800, I bought a roll adaptor… with the RRPaper 17” roll I have now printed as long as 57.”

Fountain pen friendly stock - Here's why
Jonathan Rawle
I needed a correspondence/greeting card stock for my photographs on which I could write with fountain pens. I have had to search widely for this - it's fantastic to have this resource. I've been buying various photo display and correspondence papers from Red River for a few years. This Polar Matte is well coated for very high quality ink-jet photo reproduction on one side. On the photo side I use both dye- and pigment Canon printers. The "back" is sized (treated) for clean (unfeathered) acceptance of a range of inks, which ended up working well for 99% of my fountain pen inks. Also note that Red River provides ICC profiles for these paper stocks!

60lb Polar Matte and Canon imagePROGRAF-1000
Paul Burns Art Studio
Results are outstanding with the 60lb Polar Matte. I had a customer that couldn't tell the difference between an original watercolor and the art print. As an artist I couldn't ask for anything more from a paper product.

Greeting Cards on Matte

My "Artist Friends" say that if a card is to be "Art," it must be matte, not glossy. After trying many, the Polar Matte at 60 lb is an easy (and automatic) choice.
