Re: super high gloss inkjet paper?

Oh yes Mark. I'd make a print for you and send it off but the 7800 is filled with the matte ink set. One thing though,
the inks sit on top, to a degree, on the gloss papers and one must allow them to dry. With the matte papers the inks
settle into the paper and do not smear.

Again, not being one that knows everything, though I do hold opinions, I believe there is a difference between the Ultrachrom
inks and the Ultrachrome K3 inks. The inks are developed by Epson and manufactured by Sun Chemicals of Denmark, with plants
in other portions of the world. The technology behind these inks, wherein the pigment particles are so small the process is done through nanotechnology, meaning the particles are, indeed, small.

Have you been able to get the Kodak glossy paper to work satisfactorily with Epson inks? I have a fair bit of the paper and get horrible results with my Epson 4000 printer and Ultrachrome pigment inks. The surface crawls incredibly.

Kodak has a fine quality paper or two. One, of high gloss is 'Premium Photo Paper' 230 gsm.
Download the profile for the paper for your 7800 and try both the Perceptual and Relative
Colormetric aspects to see what you like best. Don't forget to pre- proof prior to printing.

Dear List, I am looking for a super shiny high gloss paper for the epson 7800 printer. I would like it to be as shiny as possible. What can you recommend?
Thank you for knowing everything!
