Reviews for 60lb. Polar Matte Greeting Cards

Jennifer Alexander
This paper seriously blows me away, especially after trying cheaper papers from Amazon! Believe me! It is worth EVERY CENT. My cards on the Amazon paper were so dull but with this paper, they are bright, beautiful, and look just like the artwork! I am so thankful I found this company; you better believe I will buy more!

Best paper 'ever!'
Clareene Forbes
I have been using Red River papers for several years now. Quality can't be beat. I use a lot of color in my projects and bright clear colors are a must. Ordering is simple too and delivery is quick. Also I like that papers are delivered in heavy lidded boxes...Keep up the good work!

Polar matte is so good for cards
We like the River Linen but the Polar Matte is our go-to for greeting card stock. We print for several clients and were very pleased to be able to get square stock as well. The colors are wonderful, especially for a matte surface. The feel is smooth and thick without being too heavy. Just love it!

Great Paper for Printing Notecards
Nita Winter
I love this paper for printing notecards. As conservation photographers, my husband, Rob Badger, and I used to use the Green recycled paper stock. We're sorry it isn't available anymore but this is a great alternative and our customers love the quality of our cards. We love that we can easily print specific cards when they are running low, create new ones and try them out. We never waste money, or materials, by ordering quantities of cards that may not sell. The profit margin using this paper is great. We offer over 30 different notecards at our live events and pop-ups, when we are promoting and selling our 12 time award-winning coffee table book, "Beauty and the Beast: California Wildflowers and Climate Change."

I found the best settings for me are: Printer: Canon-Pro 200 WIFI (depends on your setup) Color Management: Printer Manages Colors Printer Options - Color Matching-Canon color matching - Quality & Media - Media Type: Matte Photo (also Matte selected on Canon paper settings), Print Quality-High

Amazing Capture on Black Ink
I print black and white illustrations on an inkjet Epson and this paper gives the richest black out of any paper I've tried. It looks like velvet. In addition to the color hold, the fine details don't bleed at all. Everything looks crisp and amazing. I was ecstatic when I tried this paper - I can't express enough how deep the black is on the Polar Matte. This paper makes me feel proud to put my name on my art.
