(Read All Reviews)

Made from 100% cotton rag and featuring a lightly textured semigloss surface, Palo Duro SoftGloss Rag gives you the classic look of a darkroom photographic print with the performance of modern inkjet technology. Its surface look and feel reminds many of the traditional F-Type print. This OBA-free archival paper is ideal for museum-quality and conservation grade photographic prints. We think that Ansel Adams would be stunned by the emotional power of a Palo Duro SoftGloss Rag print.

This paper is printing beautifully on my epson sc400. Colors and blacks are rich and deep. I'm also able to print a postcard template on the back via the printer as well. Finished result is fantastic.

My Choice for Fine Art Paper
Steve Dell
02/17/2020
I print both with an Epson P800 and an Epson 3800. I planned to have the 3800 do all of the Matte Ink (MK) printing and the P800 do all the conventional PK ink printing. I spoke to Red River recently and asked them if they had a fine art paper that used Photo Black (PK) inks. Palo Duro SoftGloss Rag was their recommendation. I just started experimenting with this paper and couldn't be happier. Colors are spot on and the tonality for B&W is superb. The texture and hand feel are wonderful. Nothing special was required for printing this paper with my P800. More importantly, my clients love it too!!

Palo Duro Softgloss Rag is my go-to Exhibition Paper
Michael B
01/10/2020
Palo Duro Softgloss Rag is my go-to paper for exhibition printing. It's museum quality, which is of extreme importance to me, while having the look and feel of old fiber based semi-gloss F surface paper from my darkroom printing days. Black & white prints really pop with good contrast and deep blacks (depending on your printer) and color prints look great too. The look and tactile sensation of this paper is amazing. It is just slightly warm but if you are not directly comparing it to something else you wouldn't know it wasn't bright white. Keep up the great work!

I have been using this incredible paper since it was introduced and absolutely love it. I particularly like the neutral white base and the deep blacks I get with my Epson P600. Almost all of my color work is night photography and my prints look amazing.

Beautiful finish

This is a paper with substantial weight and a beautiful finish that produces deep rich colors. I use this when looking for deep saturated prints.

I see the texture of the paper when I touch it. It's as personal as it gets for me when this happens with fine art printing papers. Sumimasen, I have to return to my printing.

Exceptional paper!

Just wanted to let you know that I recently participated in a significant portfolio review where several of my reviewers commented very favorably on the paper I used for my 13x19 prints and assumed it was a Hahnemuhle paper. I assured them it was Red River! I love this paper and use it for most of my work.
