epson arch matt paper same as enhanced matt?
« on: March 20, 2012, 02:23:02 AM »

hi there,
just received A2 paper that was ordered as Epson archival matt ( there's no A2 in arch matt ) and got Epson enhanced matt.
does anybody know if that is the same paper?
i have profiled the arch matt and it works beautifully on my 3800 and now I'm wondering if I have to profile all over again.
description on various epson sites sounds the same. weight and finish etc.
any thoughts
cheers

The name changes of that paper were EAM>EEM>EUPPM=Epson Ultra Premium Presentation Paper Matte but not everywhere.

If it looks good for you there is no reason to profile it all over again.
However you can not profile for the white/color shifts in time which was the main reason to change the name from EAM to EEM.

thank you,
that sounds reassuring that it's the same paper.
so you're saying that it did not hold up to the archival expectations?
cheers

Correct. Its latest incarnation EUPPM has been tested again, this time at Aardenburg Imaging. Off all the colors in the print the paper white performes the worst, shifts fast and strong.
