RE: Masa papers was Artistico Unsized?

Hi Jean,

I buy it from Jerry's Artarama:
https://www.jerrysartarama.com/art-supply/catalogs/016578A000000 (USD 65
for 100 21x31" sheets)

HP9180 is indeed a very good printer (for both digital negatives and
regular prints). My only complaint about it is: it doesn't work well
with Ultrafine -> I have to pay premium for Pictorico. Ultrafine + 1290
was a wonderful combo for making negatives (but no good for prints since
inks are dye based). I should note that digital negatives made with
HP9180 on Pictorico gives slightly more grain compared to negatives made
with 1290 on Ultrafine.

Anyway... Good luck with your 9180.

Hi Loris,

Your enthusiasm about Masa paper seems quite communicative  ;-)

Where do you buy it ?  (I know you are in Turkey; I'm in France). Maybe,
you've already posted your source on this list but I can't remember 
and i did not take time tp search for it in the Archives.

By the way, I'm happy to know that you use HP 9180 to print your digital

negatives. I just bought one ; it arrived some days ago and is still in
box  (I'm not sure where I'll put it because it needs some room !).
Seems to 
be an excellent printer; i read a lot about it and various ICC profiles
the Yahoo group "HP9100 Series" dedicated to this printer.

Cheeers from france
