Aurora Art Natural 250 for Art Prints
Maria Palmer
05/03/2022
I purchased this paper to use for art prints of my watercolor paintings. It has just enough texture to embrace the watercolor elements and prints are outstanding. I will continue to use this paper.

Favorite Paper for Watercolor Reproductions
Madison

A photographer friend who always raves about RRP turned me onto the Aurora Art Natural 250 paper after I decided to start making prints of my watercolor illustrations. I've tried multiple papers for making archival prints and this 100% cotton, natural-toned paper is perfect for my needs - it is very similar to the hot press cotton watercolor paper I create my original paintings on. I use an Epson SC-P700 and have no trouble feeding one sheet at a time as long as I clean the rollers regularly. Otherwise, the rollers collect a lot of lint from the cotton paper and will cause the printer to misfeed. I'm very pleased with the paper, the packaging, and the customer service at Red River Paper.

Fine Art Finish to Greeting Cards

I use the Aurora Art Natural card stock when I want bright color but not a glossy finish. I have been very happy with the results for landscape and flower as well as animal photos.

Aurora Art Natural greeting card stock

Well, I usually print my cards on 60# Pecos river Gloss. I bought the Aurora Art Natural on a whim to try, because it was on sale. It is a very good paper but I still prefer the Pecos River I will use this paper but won't be buying it again.

Printing my holiday cards and note cards is a breeze with this paper. It made them special to all who received them. I have used this paper for years for cards and also the roll or sheet for artwork and artist books.

Wonderful paper, but not with my Canon PRO-1000

I love this stock, but I simply can't use it with the PRO-1000. Despite attempts at help from Canon and RR support, I simply could not get it to feed -- even single sheets with hand assistance went less than half the time. So I won't be ordering any more of this -- too bad!
Hello Alan! Thank you for the review! I am not sure if you tried alcohol swabs on the feed roller or printer cleaning sheets, but those may help! We also have an anti-static brush that can remove any dust from cotton papers like Aurora to help it feed (all found on our Accessories page).

Feeding multiple greeting cards might be a problem
Harry Newell

Verified Buyer
I liked the way my greeting card prints looked on Art Natural 250, but I found that I had to babysit attempts at printing multiple sheets on my Canon pro-100. Even after I carefully cleaned the rollers, my attempts at printing even half a dozen cards unattended failed. I tried both alcohol swabbing the rollers, and Canon's roller cleaning utility without success.
Hello Harry, Thank you for your review! Fine art cotton papers usually require more care (feeding one at a time) and are ideal for limited edition print runs when you want a high end card or print. Our Polar and Premium matte are better if you need archival prints more efficiently at a lower cost.

Canon Pro 1000-will not feed
Chris Reiss

With Canon Pro 1000: too thick to feed in to top tray, too small to feed in to manual tray. Was able to find a work around: create a template on larger paper and stick to template with weak/temporary acid-free adhesive. Paper it's self beautiful, pleasant texture, best price for archival matte paper I've found. Look forward to using more in larger sizes.
Thank you Chris! I would also suggest using the Paper Abrasion setting if you do use the regular top feed tray to avoid scraping (with printer cleaning sheets): https://www.redrivercatalog.com/infocenter/tips/inkjet-printer-paper-thickness-platen-gap-adjustment.html Thanks for sharing your workaround!

Not good for Epson P900
Tim

Verified Buyer
The is fantastic-lovely texture and feel and my art reproduces well. My issue is with my printer. If you are using an Epson SC-P900 I must caution you. Mine stops feeding this paper after 4 sheets at the most. Again-this printer has known feed issues, I don’t think it’s necessarily the fault of the paper. It could also be the greeting card size (6.25-9) I’m not sure how it works with full sheets. I wish it got along better with my printer.
