TYVM Jay and Bill; that's great news.

Any recommendations for 25" paper that resembles Epson Premium Luster?

I second "Ink Jet Art Micro ceramic luster" very close to epson premium luster.
You can get decent results using the epson profile also.

Thanks in part to the info you good guys have posted here, I've ordered a 3880 from Atlex and a box of 25X17" InkJetArt Micro-Ceramic Luster paper.  I'll resolve later how I'll be making sheets longer than 25".

I’ve been printing with Harman’s ‘Gloss Baryta’ (now by Hahnemühle) for many years and have made dozens of A2 prints (approx. 17x24”). It’s a marvelous paper which I can highly recommend. I have never had problems with surface scratches, at least not with my Epson 3880. The surface does have however a higher sheen than quite a few fine-art inkjet papers and this could possibly show scratches more readily than a less shiny surface would. Having said this, I might add that I always store my prints separated by a fine piece of acid-free tissue paper. Perhaps this has been the reason I have experienced so few (if any) scratches on the surface of my prints.

Thanks Larry, I am planning to order some of Harman's Gloss Baryta when it comes in stock at B&H.

Re: It looks to me as if Epson states the 3880's max. paper length is 22".

Per Epson:
Printable Area

Maximum paper width  17"

Maximum cut-sheet size 17" x 22"
...

Will the 3880 print full-length on 17X25" paper?  If so, I might buy one; 19X13" prints are looking a little small, and I don't have room for a 4900.

Yes, the usual rubbish from the Epson US site. It is called an A2 printer, and A2 is longer than 22". 17" x 22" is the largest supported US paper size it will print borderless. The Max length is 95 cm (approximately 37.4").

I've gotten 17x25 sheets of luster finish paper from Ink Jet Art and Red River. Works well using the Epson luster profile in my 3800.

Just have to be careful about dented corners and send it back for replacement. (I do not understand their packaging methods - either I am the only one who gets dented paper, which is highly unlikely, or no one else sends it back.)

Dozens of shipments from InkjetArt for nearly ten years with no issues whatsoever.
