Reviews for 88lb. Polar Matte

Nice Feel
Bruce T.
I have used the 60-lb Polar Matte before and liked the matte finish. The 88-lb Polar Matte finish is the same as the lighter weight paper but has a very nice feel; much more substantial. After first trying the automatic feed tray (top) on my printer, I switched to the manual feed tray (back); does not bend the stiffer paper as much. Either way, the paper lays flat after printing

Great product

The paper I used for my clients save the dates printed beautifully on the paper I purchased from Red River. No smudges at all and the ink went on smoothly. My clients also love the smoothness of the paper. I just can't say enough about this paper. The quality is superb. Red River paper is my new favorite and will remain my goto for photo printing needs.

I have been using 88lb. Polar Matte for sympathy acknowledgement cards that I sell on Etsy. The thickness is perfect for flat cards. Images print beautifully on this paper.

PERFECT for DIY Holiday Cards
Verified Buyer
We wanted to print some Valentine's Day cards to send to friends and family, so we started looking for paper to do it ourselves. We printed these cards on my Epson P900 and the results are better than any of the name brand cards we have received in the mail from others. Like any matte paper, it's very wet coming out of the printer and curl up quite a bit. Amazingly, when laid out on a hard table they dry completely flat on their own. I highly recommend this paper. I'm planning to buy larger sizes of this paper to use as soft cover book covers for DIY photo books.

Perfect Postcards
Verified Buyer
Love the quality of the postcards. I print this on my Canon Pixma ix6820 and the art comes out beautifully. I do have to adjust the placement of the art by 1/8" on Photoshop but when the prints come out, it's centered. I also appreciate that RRP provides an ICC profile so that the colors look great. Also love that these are thick enough to send through the mail without an envelope :) Thank you!

I'm not a photographer but i do muddle around in graphic design creating cards, gift tags and mostly bookmarks. The 88lb polar matte is the best paper I have found for bookmarks. It is a good weight with no problems getting through my printer. And the color is stunning. It is a joy to work with.

Good quality that you don't find in others

After several tests throughout a few weeks I found that the weight and color of the 88lb Polar Matte to be exceptional. When printing on this paper it has a very good texture and enough brightness to have your photos pop but not be over bearing to the viewer. The tone and contrast of the photos hold up well and they just look great! Overall it is a very good paper!
