Reviews for Palo Duro Etching 315

Nice texture
Stephen Organ
I use Red River papers for printing photographs. I recently purchased RR Palo Duro Etching 315 because I sometimes want a paper with a bit of texture. I love this paper! I’ll be buying more in different sizes.

Pablo Duro Etching 315 - best decision I’ve made
Craig Wright
Verified Buyer
I’m a watercolor artist who wanted to sell prints of my paintings. I initially tried the ‘outsourcing’ approach, but it was way too expensive, with limited control over the process. So I bought a nice giclee printer for home and the supplies needed to stand up a DIY, print on demand approach. I bought all the supplies I needed in bulk: backboards, mats, cellophane sleeves, reinforced envelopes. When it came to paper, I wanted high end because I wanted to give buyers the next best thing to the original painting itself. I tried the giclee printer MFR’s paper. It was nice stuff but they were frequently “out of stock”, super slow to ship orders, and don’t offer sizes that match standard mats and frames…, so I had to trim every finished print with a paper cutter; such a waste of time and paper. I ran across a site that mentioned Red River paper, so I bought a box of Palo Duro Etching 315. Best decision I’ve made as far as paper goes. Just like the MFR’s recommended paper…, really nice paper! 100% cotton, 21 mil thick, natural white with a textured matte and slightly lower in price. But no “out of stock” issues and shipping times are reasonable and consistent. The biggest plus is Red River offers the exact sizes I need for standard off-the-shelf matting and framing (e.g., 5x7, 8x10, 11x14, 16x20). No more wasted time and paper trimming prints to size. Now I print, assemble and ship. Red River Palo Duro Etching 315 is now my primary source for paper.

Great for old photo restorations
Roy Dressel
I have a portrait and wedding studio that also does restorations and scans old photos. I just recently discovered Palo Duro Etching 315, and it's a beautiful paper for those warm colors and works great for sepia-toned photos. Its texture also gives the older photos an original look. While Polar Matte is my go-to for most old photos, Palo Duro Etching 315 is there for those that need a little different look.

Excellent for Portrait and Fine Art Photo
Craig Callan
The rough handmade look of this paper adds the necessary character for portraits. Looks great with sepia, and it holds a lovely deep black. I spray it with Premier Print Shield for extra depth and protection.

Palo During Etching 315

I absolutely LOVE how this paper works with my fine art prints of watercolor paintings. It's difficult to tell the difference between the print and the original!

Great for my watercolor prints
I'm a watercolor artist and these are the best paper/texture for recreating the original as prints to sell without losing any quality. Love them!

Did not disappoint.
Joy Neasley
I recently purchased a canon pro 300 printer to print giclee quality prints of my watercolor artwork rather than ordering them. After lots of research, Red River seemed the way to go for quality paper. Having a good printer is only part of getting great Fine Art Giclees. The Palo Duro Etching 315 paper replicated my watercolor illustrations and paintings perfectly. They look like the original artwork. My artwork is detailed and this paper shows the detail. Love it.

Perfect for my watercolor prints
Verified Buyer
I used to print on a standard textured card stock and switched to this paper a few months ago. The color accuracy and depth compared to my old paper are unreal! They make my watercolor prints look like originals.

Fallen In Love Again

I bought Palo Duro Etching a year ago with the intent of experimenting, and it has languished on a pile of my regularly used printing paper boxes unused. Today, for the first time, I had a perfect specimen to try. It was a digital wet plate collodian simulation requested by a gallery for an upcoming show this March. As a collodian it was important for me to use a toothy fine art paper so that the period atmosphere I was going for was preserved. I reasoned if the Palo Duro Etching paper didn't work I'll move on to other matte or fine art papers that might meet the challenge. Using Red River's excellent ICC profile for Palo Duro Etching it looked right as soon as I migrated the image from my computer to my print screen. I thought, "it can't be this easy, so let's see what happens when I print." The Result: I am in love with a new paper. The grays and blacks are magnificent and everything about the collodian effect is fully in tact. It almost has an "alternative chemical darkroom" feel to it. Today, with new motivation, my sole purpose for the next weeks will be to shoot subjects specifically used with this magnificent cold press art paper. Bravo!

"Using an HP Photosmart C4580 set to best photo quality, I chose Arctic Polar Luster as my paper choice because the paper's surface shows the saturation of the image in full, without distorting the shadow areas, and without the hindrance of reflection"
