Reviews for Palo Duro Baryta Fiber 300®

Right up there with the best!

PDBF 300 is superb, with great color depth, contrast, and detail rendering. I particularly like the low-sheen surface, which significantly reduces glare. It has a beautiful, warm, base tone, which is especially appealing with sunlit forest scenes. If you're looking for a paper similar to Palo Duro Softgloss Rag, but warmer, then this is the paper for you.

I've been using this paper for a few months now and it's my new favorite fine art paper. It's got a heavy, substantial feel and makes my images look great, especially black and white. It reminds me of the F (glossy) surface air-dried fiber-based paper I used in the darkroom many years ago. It's got a beautiful soft sheen, deep blacks, great tonality throughout the dynamic range of the image.

Enjoying the new Baryta paper...

I recently decided to try upgrading my paper and thought I'd give the new Palo Duro Baryta a try. This is a newer paper and not all of the profiles and settings are available for all printer yet (including my older Canon); but Red River quickly got me the profile and setup info I needed. I'm very pleased by the results! I've printed both color and B&W photos on it and they look stunning. The paper has a pleasant texture that doesn't interfere with the print at all. It's a heavier paper and needs to be handled accordingly; but results in an attractive and durable print. I'll be adding other sizes of this Baryta in the near future.

Pretty nice, but the texture...

I enjoy the color reproduction and reflectivity of this paper, and with a museum grading I'm sure it will last a long time. I don't particularly like the surface texture, it's quite uneven and this makes my images appear less sharp upon close inspection. Some people will surely enjoy the natural feel, but I prefer the evenness of a luster surface. This paper is also fairly delicate (though not as delicate as the Softgloss rag), so handle with care. I like the weight and thickness of the Baryta but my Canon Pro-100 did scratch a test sheet so it may be too thick for standard settings. I had thought this would be my paper of choice but the surface texture is too much of a drawback for me so I'm going with something else. If the San Gabriel 2.0 version ever comes back in stock then I'll consider that one.

wonderful overall, but large sizes warped?

Beautiful paper overall, and one of my clients insisted on the use of this paper because of the wonderful texture and its ability to bring out the details and beauty of a fine art B&W print. He liked this paper far better than the San Gabriel Baryta. However, I'm disappointed in larger sizes of the paper (17"x25"), as my box arrived warped -- on the Epson SureColor P800 the print head hits the paper, leaving scratches on the final print. I've tried various techniques to flatten the paper and to adjust print settings (as suggested by RRP), but no luck -- so I'm going back to the San Gabriel Baryta for my large prints. My house humidity is 40% (still too low?), and the San Gabriel is fine in the 17"x25" size, so it must be something inherent in the coating of the Palo Duro Bartya paper that makes it susceptible to warping. (also, I've been impressed by RRP support -- they tried very hard to make this work for me with lots of suggestions! Possibly other printers may be better than the Epson (Canon?), so I suggest that you give it a try.)

Excellent B&W with Canon Pro 100

My title pretty much says it all. I went through a lot of recommended papers for b&w printing to find this . On Palo Duro Baryta I get a very professional looking print. Smooth gradation of tones from deep black to a natural white. People ask me what printer I have...I tell them it's the paper, not my low-end printer! It's not the cheapest RR paper, but for exhibition quality prints it's less costly than other choices.

Excellent archival paper
Nicholas Holshouser

I'm doing several fine art shows that want all prints to be matted to archival standards. The Palo Duro Baryta fiber is a wonderful semi-gloss paper that works with either black and white or color images. I was very impressed with the papers ability to keep detail in dark shaded areas and the semi-gloss really lets the contrast stand out in B+W prints. I only ordered 11x14 but I'm going to go big and make some 17x22 prints for these shows.
