Hawk Mountain Paper
« on: April 26, 2007, 01:35:49 PM »

Is anyone here using Hawk Mountain paper Condor BriteWhite?  I'm looking for a double sided matte paper that's similar to the surface of  Ultrasmooth but with a whiter base.  Any opinions on this paper?  How does the surface hold up to handling?  My prints are bound in a book.  I have been using Moab Entrada BW but I'm having a problem with the ink rubbing off on opposing pages, so I need to find a replacement paper and Ultrasmooth's out due to its warmth.

Thanks,

Chris

Chris,

Have you tried it?  I bought samples and like it and the Condor Natural very much--in fact so much that I'm going to order the 17 x 25" in the natural (for mono toned prints) to print with 3800.  I don't have any experience in knowing how the surface holds up over time though.  A good place to ask would be on the DigitalBlackandWhitePrint group on yahoogroups.  I know there are a number of folks there who use it.

Hi Diane,

I have the sample pack which I'm trying now.  I still like the surface of the Ultrasmooth better,  I just wish it wasn't so warm.
