Printer: Epson 2400

Matte: Epson Velvet Fine Art

The majority of my printing is on glossy papers.

Printer Canon iPF5000

Papers: Ilford Smooth Pearl & Kodak Professional Inkjet Photo Paper, Lustre


I lean towards the Kodak paper. It gives me brighter whites.

As does Canon's Premium Bright Photo Satin which is a "whiter" paper with less sheen then the Ilford paper.

I like Canon/Hahnemuhle Museo Etching Paper for B/W. For Color, love Crane Museo Rag. I also use Epson Luster for general printing.

Printer:Epson 2400 w/ Imageprint RIP
Glossy/Pearl: Innova
Matt: Entrada Warm (matt only rarely since innova & 2400))
Canvas: N/A
One other: Epson Premium Luster when I do color (only rarely)

Honestly, I'm so happy to have my "wet darkroom back" in the 2400 and Innova...Black & White with rich rich blacks and beautiful tones. I print and print all night with virtually no waste. The paper is pricey but I used to toss out a lot of paper in my wet darkroom, which wasn't cheap either. I can't say enough about this paper. Digital "Traditional" B&W has come of age.

BTW: I set my ink reduction settings to 78% w/ Innova and Imageprint.

Pete, what Innova are you using?  The F type Semimatte?

Pete, I realize the same things you mention in regards to 'wet' darkroom. Still have my wet darkroom to print my 4x5 images, but will convert this digitally once I get a decent 4x5 scanner. Much easier to clean up dust using PS CS2 than the old fashion way. Digital printers have gone a long ways in producing quality prints worthy of selling.
