Hey everyone, I was just curious, to those of you who use the Epson 2200 inkjet printers, what's your favorite paper??? Because I've been using normal glossy Epson paper, but I really like what I've seen printed on Illford paper, anyone know anything about Illford paper, or have any ideas on which Illford paper to go with??? Thanks

Ilford Galerie smooth glossy. Love the stuff. I was a dedicated hp paper guy til i found this stuff. It is not easy to feed. you have to print one sheet at a time but it is worth if for the results.

Try the sampler pack from Red River Paper Company. They've got a great variety of paper for the Epson 2200 and their prices are really cheap.

For portraits I use the Ilford Professional Smooth Pearl Paper on my 2200 with great results. I also use the Epson Lustre.

I have never been disappointed with any Ilford product.

I second that... I get all my paper and ink from Red River and their quality and prices are the best. Try their paper sample packs for pigment inks... http://www.redrivercatalog.com/samples/2200.htm

One more for Red River I use their Polar Gloss and Polar Satin and love the look and feel. For Ink I use Carrotink.com They seem to have good prices.

Do you all use Epson inks, or a 3rd party's for that, too.
