Reviews for Palo Duro SoftGloss Rag 315

I'm big into blacks.

I shoot close-up photography, in studio, of flowers and plants that are in various stages of transition. I shoot with a solid black cloth background and was looking for a rag paper that would give me a true solid black. I also wanted some gloss but not too much. I came across Palo Duro SoftGloss Rag 315 in a RR sample pack. When it came out of the printer I knew I had found my paper. The blacks were gorgeous and the texture gave it the perfect amount of gloss. I also appreciate the extra thickness when printing in a larger size and placing it in a mat and frame.

Favorite Go To Paper

Love this paper! I wanted something with a cotton base with a semi-gloss surface for my nature photos and this did the trick. Also comes it the odd sizes I needed (9x13 and 17x25). I plan on always having this paper on hand!

Absolutely LOVE this paper. I used this for my client's 25th Wedding Anniversary invitations where I printed a photo from their original wedding 25 years ago & tinted the photo as a backdrop to the printed invitation wording. It turned out amazing. The quality & thickness of the paper is superb which created an elegant invitation.

Palo Duro Softgloss in my standard paper. I work in black and white, with carbon pigment inks. This paper provides an excellent range of tones, with a very satisfying D-Max.

My go to choice

I ordered sample boxes and printed the same set of B&W and color images on each paper. This was my favorite for both B&W and color. The paper has a slightly warmer tone than some others. It produces punchy, detailed images with excellent tonal range and saturation. The paper handles nicely. I also like the Big Bend Baryta 310 for color and the Palo Duro Baryta Fiber 300 for B&W. I use these for longer images as the Palo Duro Softgloss Rag is not available in roll format for my 17" printer.

I love this paper. I like the texture and slight reflectiveness of it. It appears to be more vibrant that other types of paper I have used. This will be my go to choice in the future.

This paper is a near match to Epson Legacy Platine. I am very impressed with this paper. I use it for printing black and white landscapes and love the 17x25 paper option.

Charlene

Love this paper! I have used this paper to create xmas cards for a client last year & am currently using this paper for 25th Wedding Anniversary black & white photo invitations for another friend/client of mine. Whether printing color or black & white the results are outstanding. The Palo Duro Soft Gloss photo paper is definitely my favorite Red River Paper for all my photo projects!

Exceptional semi-gloss rag paper

I've been a fan of Red River's papers for a while, but I'm also a huge fan of Canson's Platine Fibre Rag and their Rag Photographique (for matte printing). While I haven't tried RR's Palo Duro Smooth Rag (which I think may be comparable to Photographique), this Palo Duro Softgloss Rag is every bit as good as the Canson Platine Fibre Rag at significantly lower cost. In fact, they are so close, it honestly wouldn't surprise me if they were from the exact same mill. The paper is thick and heavy with a wonderful cotton rag feel, with a gorgeous semi-gloss finish with outstanding color and detail reproduction. Currently my go-to paper for about 80% of my printing (basically all non-matte printing).
