For the month of October, Red River Paper has 50-sheet boxes of the 8" by 11" and 13" by 19" Polar Pearl Metallic paper on sale for $30 and $80, respectively. I’ve been using the Metallic for a few months now, and I really like it. It’s the first paper that I’ve found that approximates […]

Last fall, while wandering through our local photo store (Pro Photo Supply, if you’re in the Portland, Oregon area), we found some postcard stock from a company in Wisconsin called […]

Glossy papers from Red River and Moab

Thursday, January 3rd, 2008

We’ve been testing quite a few printers in the past month or so–in fact, there are 10 printers set up in various states around my office as I write this. When we evaluate a printer, we start out with the printer manufacturer’s papers with our test images; in theory, that combination should offer the best […]
