I am currently using Epson premium glossy photo paper with my Photo Stylus 925. It works great, but I'd like to find some borderless 4x6, 5x7, and 8x10 matte paper, too. Epson doesn't make any and I'm scared to just go trying a whole buncha different papers.

If you're using an Epson printer, I'd like to know what matte paper you're using.

Thanks,
Mike

Ilford has made some fine digital printing paper (Gallerie). Some Epson owners I know will only use that instead of the actual Epson paper it is that good. From my experience with it I am pleased as well, just don't own a printer so don't really find myself in a bind, but its cost effective and good end prints. Might wanna take a look on the link below, give you some choices, if you see something of interest I can look into the compatibility factors for you

Hopefully, a working link to some Ilford Digital Printing Paper

I use Epson's Fine art papers almost exclusively, esp their Enhanced Matte paper with my Epson 2000p. I don't generally make prints smaller than 8x10; this stuff is 8 1/2x11 and has a beautiful surface. On very rare occasions when I do need to make 4x6 prints, I just use a publishing program to print two side by side on the 8 1/2x11 paper. Works pretty well.

I use the Premium Luster Photo Paper "E" surface and I feel it rocks.
All the papers are good I just really like this one.

Mike,

Check out The worlds largest independent Epson Support Forum and feel free to jump in and ask....great place for Epson or digital printing help. Guy that runs it does a spiel on digital papers and printers at our Photo 101 Workshops. His names Keith. He also does alot of fine art printing and knows papers backwards and forwards.

Rick
