I'm a professional event photographer specializing in senior graduations and weddings. For to many years I farmed out my work to printers. About Three years ago I invested in a epson printer and took up a few printing classes. I came upon Red River Paper by web serving two year ago,and it was the best thing to happen. Ever since I have been using five papers from red river, and Palo Duro Satin in now newest. I wasn't sure what to expect as this was an experiment. Turned out that the paper was far above what I expected and it is now being used on all the many recent senior graduations I did.Which is fifty three, amazing that I pulled this off this year in light of what is happening.I would highly recommend this paper with a five star rating.

Wonderful paper
Matthew Sarratt
I love this paper because it adds a warmer tone to my monochrome photos. It is “just right” in terms of finish- not too dull, not too glossy. My go-to paper!

My Go-to paper
Clinton Fitch
Ordered it for some family photos I was printing and found the paper to be wonderful. The colors are beautiful the texture and sheen are perfect. It is a little too warm for my black & white work. I have not stopped using UltraPro Satin and UltraPro Gloss in favor of Palo Duro.

The Red River Palo Duro Satin is definitely one of the *best* semi-gloss/satin type photo papers I have ever used. The subtle warm tone of this paper blends perfectly with my nature photography. My Eastern Box Turtles and Birds of Prey pictures look absolutely fantastic using the Palo Duro Satin. I highly recommend this product especially if you specialize in wildlife or landscape photography.

Palo Duro Satin-66lb.
Harold Davies
I bought this on sale for my 4X6s. However I have found it very good on larger panoramic sizes. Not at all too glossy, just realistic and generally draws a comment from non-pros about the depth and realism this paper shows.

Try It!
Bill Burro
I bought a roll of Palo Duro Satin because it was on sale at a great price. I liked it so much that I've already ordered a second roll. This paper is brighter white than I expected. Wildflower photos and paintings, look great on Palo Duro. So do restorations of historic photos. It is sturdy enough that my rough handling does not result in kinks or other surface imperfections. Yet it folds nicely without cracking for gallery wrap framing. Excellent image detail...very good color control and gradations, even in the shadows. Outstanding highlight control. Don't let 'warm tone' fool you. This 'warm' paper has no yellow or brownish tint. Give it a try.

White and bright!
James Kelson
I have been using UP Satin and other papers with OBAs. I had considered trying the Palo Duro Satin at avoid the OBAs. I put off trying this paper because the descriptions did not sound appealing. I did not want sepia tones. "Warm" sounded like a euphemism for yellow and dingy. I finally bought a trial pack and was very pleasantly surprised. To my eye (and to my wife's eye) this paper is every bit as white and bright as the UP satin. My prints on this paper look great!

Almost, but not quite
William Baker
I wish it was (1) a little heavier or thicker; it's like a single-weight photo paper and, with handling, it gets those little bent crescent thingies that mess up an otherwise perfect print; (2) even warmer in tone, maybe like Aurora Art Natural. So, you may ask, why don't I go ahead and print on Aurora Art Natural? Answer: I want a luster or satin surface; not the dead matte surface of Aurora Art Natural. Oh, well, probably not much can be done about them, but at least you know my complaints.

Fantastic paper
Henry S. Winokur
I've been using RR papers for about 5 years on the advice/ suggesting of my photography teacher. I've been using Palo Duro Satin since November (give or take) of 2014. I switched because Ultra Pro Satin's formula was changed. I am SO GLAD I did. I think the PDS is even better than the UPS (prior to version 4.0) that I was using. I just love this stuff. Thanks RedRiver. You've got a great one here. I hope you're NOT planning any "improvements", 'cause far too often things get messed up when that happens.

A cross between Arctic Polar and Ultra Pro 3.0

My first Red River favorite paper was Arctic Polar Satin, especially for the lower reflectance surface. However, I was not fond of the high level of optical brighteners in the paper, so I switched to Ultra Pro Satin. Now, Palo Duro comes along with the character of Ultra Pro and the lower reflectance surface of Arctic Polar... Sample prints with a dye ink printer show almost no difference in print rendition between Ultra Pro and Palo Duro. I think I have a new favorite general use paper because of the lower surface reflectance surface. The higher regular price (compared to Ultra Pro)is not good, but the Cyber Monday special price was good.

"As a fine art photographer, how the final print looks is paramount. I like how my "Blinded by Science" series looks on an exhibition quality matte paper that is brighter than the natural tones with a bit of texture, such as the 64lb. Aurora Art White paper."
