Have ordered 3 times now from Red River and they are awesome. the quality of the paper is amazing, everything is packed/shipped super well. Shipping is of course pricey - but not if you can splurge for a larger order ;) Thanks for you the great product, have recommended you guys to a few people and will continue to order. Cheers.

Good with some shipping issues
I love Red River Paper and use them actively for my projects. I would say that everything is perfect except sometimes there will be some shipping issues that cause problems with the quality of the paper or timing. For example, I've received boxes of paper where all of the corners were dinged because they weren't packaged properly - or I recently received a shipment late because they delivered it to the wrong house. It seems to be one out of every five orders or so that there are issues. Still, I order from Red River because the product is great. It's just something to keep in mind - for example, order your paper well in advance and have a back up plan if you have timely paper needs or a deadline.

This paper is so good that I have to restrain myself from going overboard with superlatives. The first two prints that I made were breathtakingly, jaw-droppingly good. Incredibly precise tonal rendition, detail in the shadows that is reminiscent of photo paper in the era of film, gradations of white that I never knew were there, and a lovely smoothness in areas like sky and clouds were all characteristics in which this paper surpassed all other papers. I still cannot believe what I am seeing. The prints are so life-like and visually satisfying that I feel like I discovered a new medium of expression.

Ideal for Greeting Cards
Paul Hughes
Verified Buyer
The soft, velvety finish and 60lb weight of Polar Matte are ideal for quality, professional-looking greeting cards. I've used this Red River paper for quite some time now, after trying a number of different, and some more expensive, papers from other companies. My landscape and floral photos look realistic on this high-quality matte paper. Try it!

I'm a believer now
Adi Ringer
I've always been a hardcore gloss paper guy. Something about that vibrant, shiny contrast that I couldn't get with other papers. I've been proven wrong with the RR Polar Matte paper. I got a box of matt paper just in case I found a use for it some day. For kicks, I printed a wildlife image on the RR Glossy, RR Metallic and the Polar Matt. I couldn't believe the vibrance and contrast the Matt paper delivered, looked identical as the gloss but without the glare and reflections. I have a feeling it will be my go-to paper going forward.

So impressed!
Wendy Marrow Grubbs
I sell fine art prints and have been pretty satisfied with my paper of choice. The thing I haven't been impressed with is how the paper is handled during transit, which has led to a significant loss of paper. I was led to Red River via a Facebook ad and decided to try the sample kits. I really liked the small business feel of Red River - this is the kind of business I want to support. I can't even put into words how impressed I am. The quality far outshines my former paper and the prices on almost every size are much better. Red River will now be my main paper supplier and I can't wait to share this quality with my customers. The saturation is gorgeous and my printer handles the paper so well. And I also want to acknowledge how well my order was packed - I can tell Red River really cares about the experience from start to finish and that really means a lot. I'm now a loyal Red River paper user!

Best I've used

For my final products, I use the Magna 88 lb. But for color testing and product hang tags I use the 60lb. People always comment on how professional my paper products look! I'm so glad I found Red River Paper.
