I have been using fuji prints from a photo lab for years but now I find that my color on my Epson 7800 is superior. (a lot has to do with knowing how to color correct). I want to give my clients a paper that has the feel of photo paper (like they are used to) but I am having trouble finding anything. Ilford pearl was recomended to me but I think it feels like paper and not photo paper. I guess I want something that feels like an RC print. If possible I want something on a 24" roll. Any suggestions? Thanks in advance

Check out LexJet.com. They have a ton of papers. I'm very fond of their rag paper.

I use Ilford pearl in the 8X10 size and it is exactly like an RC print.

Red River Paper company has a lot of great papers, and they'll sell you a sample pack so you can try all their papers.

If you use the Ilford, make sure it is the "Smooth" Pearl Paper. I get great results on my Epson 4880. If I use Epson, I am sure to stick with the 5 star products for best 'real photo' feel to the papers.
The Epson Luster is good, but quite pricey.

Thanks eveyone, I have tried the Ilford "Galerie" smooth pearl but I think it feels like thin cardboard. Is that the Ilford pearl that you are talking about?
