Reviews for Palo Duro Etching 315®

A Real Surprise,

I was dubious about the quality of this paper, but it turned out to be exceptional. The tones in my color prints are remarkable and I was sufficiently impressed with the paper that I just bought more. A great addition to digital printing.

Palo Duro Etching is my favorite art reproduction paper
Micah Shafer

I reproduce my watercolor originals with prints on this paper and i can tell you this has been my final paper choice. I have used a couple other papers and they do not have that special feeling like Red River gives you. Palo Duro prints look more crisp and have the nice texture you can feel and see. I tried the Aurora art naturals icc profile with this paper and it works perfectly. There is no icc profile for precision color inkset for palo duro, so use aurora art naturals icc or create your own.

The texture of this beautiful paper is very similar to watercolor paper. It is heavy weight, has a lovely feel to it, and my prints come out crisp and colorful.

Excellent Choice for a careful and discerning artist

As others have opined, the Palo Duro Etching is an excellent paper. However, make no mistake: The final print on this wonderful paper is completely dependent upon one who works carefully and takes the time to edit a given file, make a test print or two, and modify results to taste. Some would have you believe that this paper will make gold of copper, i.e., simply loading the paper and pressing the print button will guarantee a praise-worthy result. An excellent print demands an appropriate ICC profile and creative efforts that are rewarded with a print that reflects the artist's intentions. Careful work and meticulous attention to colors and details are reproduced well on Palo Duro Etching paper and the prints rendered are capable of surpassing one's expectations. I recommend this paper without reservations.

Excellent fine art paper

This paper is simply outstanding for fine art black and white prints. The paper itself has a wonderful texture that sets it apart form the RC coated photo papers. The paper has a slight warm glow that looks perfect with a double matting. I'm using the RR ICC profile and media configuration file for the PRO 1000. The set up has been spot on perfect. Highly recommended.

Finally a Matte Paper I love!
Chris Cole
07/19/2018
I've experimented with matte papers here and there over the years but I was never happy with the results. I did mostly realistic art and matte paper fuzzed the sharpness of the details and sucked the life out of the vibrant colours. When I started doing abstracts as well I thought I'd give matte papers another try. A sample pack of Palo Duro Etching won me over! The colours were perfect, the paper beautiful and heavy and perfect fine art quality. Even with the ridiculous Canadian/US exchange rate, this paper is less expensive than the big name brands that I don't even like as well. It's a fantastic paper!

A Beautiful Paper

Wow ... I'm impressed. Palo Duro Etching is a gorgeous paper -- great weight and texture. I'm working on a dreamy series of images in color and black/white. The grays are rich. The muted palette of colors I'm using melt into the paper as if hand tinted. Thank you Red River!

Palo Duro paper jam
Lars Runar
02/20/2018
Well, I got the paper but I don't remember ordering. I made two exellent 8.5X11 Prints and was getting ready to use 11 X 14 when the printer stopped. I was able to get the paper out but it got tore up on the right side and perhaps left a few shards inside. The problem is I can't close the paper drawer all the way, but regular paper will come through ok with black ink all over the borders in horizontal streaks that stop at the edge of the image. Really weird stuff.
