    Question Matte paper recomendations?

    I currently do all my printing on Canson Infinity Baryta paper with an Epson 3880. I absolutely love the output, but have a couple of buyers asking about a matte option for some of my color but mostly black and white work.

    Any recommendations? I'd like what ever I choose to come in cut sheets of 11x17, 13x19, and 17x22 size.

    Thanks.

    Just a follow up for posterity.

    After testing various matte papers I've settles on the epson hot press bright white. Can't rightly say why this paper, but it felt the best in hand and subjectively showed the nicest tonalities.

    Cheers,
    Simon

    I recently bought a roll of that for a client's prints and liked it quite a bit. Not cheap, but good. I am curious how long it will stay "bright" white though.

    Ever thought to test Hahnemuehle ??? It is my prefered choice.
    I print b&w on Albrecht Duerer and color on German Etching, sometimes on Photo Rag.
    Made a test on Ilford Smooth Pearl...... did not like the touch and feel.

    I recently bought the cold press version but didn't go for the bright white and went for the natural to stay away from the whiteners....but I do like bright white. I haven't set up my new printer yet so I don't know how much I will love using it.

    Hi Simon,

    Wondering if you also tried the Canson Rag Photographique 310, it is a
    fantastic paper IMO.

    Regards,
    Ralf
