Hi,

I have an Epson R3880 printer using original ink cartridges. Iím looking for a cotton based fine art paper (A4 sheets) for B&W prints with deep blacks and perfect whites. Any suggestions?

Thanks,

Mark

Canson's Rag Photographique and Baryta Photographique are really good on B&W. I use them both on my 3880 and 4900.

Try some samples of Breathing Color Optica one. I use this paper for my fine art B&W photos. Great rich blacks and very nice texture.

Found a canson dealer in the Netherlands selling sample packs. Didn't find a Breathing Color dealer.
