Reviews for Aurora Art Natural 300®

I love everything about this paper
Francine Fein
Verified Buyer
I get the 8-1/2x11" and print 2 of my 4.25x5.5" Cards on each piece. I have a good paper cutter. I print my artwork on the "front" panel and my Logo on the back panel. Sometimes, like at Christmas, I have a greeting inside. For me, there are two important issues that make this paper desirable. The colors print beautifully, and the paper feels good to the touch. I have one client that requests that paper because of the "feel." Before I got a new printer, I used to get the pre-scored cards, but my older printer didn't always grab the smaller sheets correctly and too many came out crooked. I didn't have that problem with the larger sheets, and printing 2 at a time is useful. I love all that Red River Paper that I've used!

Warning label recommended
Verified Buyer
I love this paper. But the greeting card sizes really need to be accompanied by a warning label. The site says it’s canon compatible, but it isn’t entirely. I’ve had a long frustrating day cleaning up after trying to use it in my Canon pro 1000. Literally cleaning up as after trying to get it to work in the top feed, my printer stopped feeding all papers. Had to clean the rollers twice before it would work. Then I tried it in a cheap HP ink jet that supposedly can handle that thickness. That resulted in similar issues. It wasn’t until after this that I see the feeding issues reported in comments. It really wouldn’t take much effort to warn people that there isn’t enough real estate (design defect) in the greeting card sizes for a good grab even in printers whose specs state it can handle the paper.
Thank you for your review Marie! Cotton papers produce more dust that make the rollers slippery in the regular top paper feed. I suggest using our inkjet printer cleaning sheets and/or a anti-static brush (both found on our accessories page). These will help the roller grab the paper better. We will add links to these items on the page to help.

Not sure this paper yet

Not sure how to rate this... My two latest purchases - Aurora Art Natural 300 in 17 x 22 and 13 x 38 have been problematic in my Epson P800. I'm getting some vertical streaking (i.e.; parallel to printhead movement) in darker areas of the image, and I'm not sure why. Have done basic and deep cleaning of nozzles and the nozzle check comes up fine. Cleaned the guides as well. Tried printing on "Thick Paper" setting, and have played some with platen height as well. Perhaps some improvement results, but they never go away. I can print on Aurora Art Natural 285 in 13 x 19, and on Epson's Hot press Natural with no troubles. I'll keep monkeying with it, but I'm wasting a lot of paper in the process. Open to suggestions...
Thank you for your review John! We recommend setting the Platen Gap to Wider or Widest and raising the number up to 3 or higher. It works well with our Epson P800 once we make those settings. If you are still having issues, please call us at 888-248-8774. Also if you prefer a thinner paper, we do have the Aurora Art Natural 250 version.

Beautiful Stock

Love everything about it except that I have a little difficulty actually signing my prints. Other than that, it is thick, soft and holds the color well. My customers get confused as to which is the original when I have them framed.

Perfect thickness
Kim M Childs
Verified Buyer
I've tried many papers over the years and Aurora Art Natural 300 is perfect for all of my projects. I set my Epson 3800 at single weight matte then set the platen at wider or widest and feed it through the top. I use 17x22 sheets which I cut into 5x7 or 7.25x8.5 for cards and calendars. The colors are always perfect and the weight of the paper is just right, as is the texture.

Really Beautiful Texture
Verified Buyer
I'm new to the world of making art prints and recently purchased a Canon imagePROGRAF PRO-300. I've experimented with a bunch of different papers in the last couple of months. Aurora Art Natural 300 is my favorite so far. It has a really beautiful tooth that reminds me crisp ironed linen fabric. And the weight of the paper is nice too. Feels good in your hands. Print quality is excellent.

Aurora Art Natural 300®
Eden Maxwell
Verified Buyer
I've been using this paper (at a good price) for many years to print my fine art paintings. Aurora Art Natural 300® is stable and a great medium for producing rich and subtle colors. I use the 5x7 size for printing artist's proofs. I do this often to keep my printer from any print head clogs. Furthermore, I also fan each sheet to remove loose particles and dust before printing.

Beautiful paper! Works great with my Canon PRO-300!
Heather F
Verified Buyer
I love this paper! The colors print out nice and juicy. For reference, I'm a watercolor artist and I'm using this paper to make prints of my paintings. I was on the fence about buying this paper because many reviews noted feed issues in a variety of printers. I was in the process of replacing my old Epson R2000 for precisely that problem...feed issues! So I didn't want to upgrade the printer and paper just to have more feed issues. I'm happy to report Aurora Art Natural 300 works splendidly in the manual feed of the Canon imagePROGRAF PRO-300. I've used both 8x10 and 11x14 size sheets. Be aware though, the printer doesn't accept anything smaller than 8x10 in the manual feed. I've also tried the Aurora 250 greeting cards in the top feed. That's where I did have a problem. The printer grabbed the cards a few times at first, and now it won't. I CAN still "spoon-feed" it and get it work by slipping the paper just into the roller. So that's fine. I definitely still recommend the paper!
Thank you for your review Heather! Our Printer cleaning sheets will help with feeding the Aurora 250 and other cotton paper. We recommend using one cleaning sheet every 20-50 sheets to keep the rollers clean. These are located in the accessories section of our website.

top shelf matte paper
Paul Mohney
Verified Buyer
I print on a Canon Pixma Pro 9000, my first grownup printer. I print a fair amount 0f 5X7 and have found matte papers feed better than the glosy varieties, but they do well one sheet at a time. I haven't tried printing anything that small from the front, but I will today. I found I needed to print a test sheet, and adjust the color on this paper (reduced the yellow)but it is was so worth it. I am a landscape photographer, and turn a lot of what i do into postcards. I have sent cards printed on Aurora Art Natural to the east coast with no visable damage to the them. I haven't waded into the rest of the papers , and am anxious to try the aurora greeting card.

Aurora Fine Art Natural Card Stock

This card stock is a wonderful rich texture and takes ink perfectly--it is my favorite Red River paper. The natural color is perfect for music. Unfortunately, it only comes in 13.5 mil, which won't feed reliably through my Epson Stylus 1400 printer, even though the samples did. This would be a perfect paper in a 40 or 50 pound weight for music and books, and the card would work great for covers. I asked a couple years ago if they might add a text weight, and they said they had been considering something of the sort, but so far no such luck.
