Printer paper @LeeWhite
Hi there, so on one of the Podcasts....I’ve listened to them all, but I can’t remember which one this was on...you were talking about your Epson printer and you use a watercolor paper to create prints that you can sell. I have an Epson Stylus Photo R2000 and I totally love it. I frequently use the Epson Luster paper but that creates more of a “photo”. What paper do you use in your printer? I need to place an order on Amazon asap. Thanks!

@mrsdion Hi Christine, I can give you the name of a paper I've used with my epson 2200 that has the closest to a watercolor paper texture I found, but it's no longer widely available, so I'm wondering if it's been discontinued by Legion/Moab and blick is just selling remaining stock. https://www.dickblick.com/products/legion-moab-somerset-photo-enhanced-inkjet-paper/?clickTracking=true&wmcp=pla&wmcid=items&wmckw=10428-0019&gclid=EAIaIQobChMIm-2EiNGI5gIVC5yzCh0Xjgv6EAQYASABEgJUr_D_BwE
B&H Photo gave me the links to papers they say are equivalent:
You can buy a sample pack of the Hahnemuhle textured papers there and might be able to find them free elsewhere.
Good luck--I haven't purchased paper for prints since 2014, so I'm sure there are more up-to-date options available.
The paper I use is Epson Cold Press Bright. It's a lovely paper with a traditional watercolor texture and very heavy weight. I have used it for the past 5 years and highly recommend it.
@BichonBistro Thanks for the info!
@Lee-White Thank you! I just ordered 25 sheets. The podcast was #39 and you were explaining all about this awesome paper and then your power went out! (Although Will took credit for the “techno gods” striking you down!)
