UltraPro Luster produces professional quality results and works with virtually any type of photographic subject. UltraPro Luster looks like traditional photo lab paper. Because it is heavier and thicker than a lab paper, your prints will feel more substantial and will resist handling wear. A relative of our best seller, UltraPro Satin, this paper features a deep luster texture to enhance your prints without being a distraction. UltraPro Luster is a brilliant bold white, which means it is particularly good at reproducing deep blacks and higher contrast. You will see a wider color gamut as well as smoother tonal transitions. Your black & white photos will be neutral and crisp.

This paper is fantastic. I have been using Epson and Canon Luster Papers for years with my Canon Pro 1000 photo printer until I came across Red River paper "wish I could have found them sooner", the Red River Ultra Pro Luster 300 is heavier than both the Epson and Canon offerings, and the deep luster texture looks fantastic, all my 8.5x11 and 17x22 prints look fantastic. I also use the Ultra Pro Satin 4.0, which is another fantastic paper by Red River. I will be using Red River from now on for all my print work.

Excellent choice for any of your general work

I use this paper in combination with 68# RR Ultra Pro Luster for most of my wide format print work. This is just a tad thicker than the 68# option and I notice a little bit better saturation, but both render colors beautifully. Red River is a great company and who I personally use exclusively.

Recently purchased Epson's new dye printer. (ET8550) Having only used pigment inks in the past was not sure about the quality dye inks would give me, however I was sure I wanted my ink costs to go down. Over the last few months have experimented with a variety of Red River papers to see which would give acceptable results. There are two papers that stand out, and in fact just blow me away for color and Black and White prints. (For B&W I only use the Epson ABW mode, and ICC Profiles for color) On the Luster end it's hands down Ultra Pro Luster 300. Just the right weight with no feed problems. Absolutely vibrant colors as well as fantastic B&W. The other paper I'll mention is Big Bent Baryta. Again a stand out for this printer. Vibrant saturated color and great B&W. Reminds me of my Darkroom favorite Oriental Seagull. Just to say maybe the obvious but calibrate your monitor, and soft proof your file before passing it to your printer for best results.

I am a professional photographer and I love this paper. I started using it on the advice of an artist friend who uses it for her prints. I have used it for two years now for my large prints I sell at art shows and galleries. It is a nice weight and finish and it comes well packaged. Big fan now of Red River papers!

Going Back To Pacific Inkjet
David
05/10/2022
Well, I have no complaints about the product itself - my complaint is about product offering. You used to carry 8x10 sheets in pkgs of 100, now you do not and only offer 50 count. 50 count is not economical - to spend $33.00+ per package in order to get 100 sheet quantity is not a prudent business move. I am going back to Pacific Inkjet. The paper quality is just as good as Red River, just a tad thinner (266gsm, I believe). My customers liked the heavier paper feel of Red River, but no complaints about thinner paper if I can keep the cost per print reasonable.
