kirkland paper and epson 2200
« on: April 19, 2006, 01:08:50 PM »

Just a short note to those who use this paper.
I have found that the profile for micro-ceramic luster paper available at the inkjer art website suits the Kirland -Cosco glossy paper and soved the problem I had with it printing too dark on my Epson 2200.

It's my understanding that the Kirkland Gloss paper is actually Ilford Smooth Gloss, Costco sells it for approximately half the price of Ilford.

I use the Ilford Smooth Gloss profiles with my Canon i9900 with great results on this paper.  Love the value, about 15 cents a sheet.

I'll bet it hasn't been tested for longevity by Wilhelm-Research. Unless you don't care about longevity, what is the point of running this kind of paper through an Epson 2200 which uses inks that cost alot more per print than does the paper, mainly because they are pigments formulated for longevity?
