Photo papers

This is an overview of papers I use in my Epson Stylus Pro 3880 printer and ICC profiles I have made for my printer.

As they are for my printer they will not be perfect for your printer, but they should give you a chance to try a paper in your printer to see how it performs.

The star rating is my subjective impression of how well I like the paper in the printer. You may have a different opinion. The gamut volume is the size of the gamut calculated by ColorThink Pro.

The profiles is made with GMB Eye-One Match 3 and the TC9.18 i1 target with 918 patches. Gamut is calculated with ColorThink Pro.
