The paper you reference is an offset paper. It is primarily used in magazines, catalogs, brochures and other high-quality publications printed on offset presses. Its coating is intended to increase holdout and to provide a very smooth surface that prevents ink from contacting the paper directly and spreading. This allows fine detail and a crisp appearance with proper printing methods. Inkjet ink typically takes a long time to dry (if ever completely) on such paper; it usually works poorly. You can find out more about it and other Sappi (South African Pulp and Paper Industries) products by going to http://www.sappi.com This specific paper can be found at http://www.sappi.com/home.asp?pid=399&itemid=710 Other products are listed at http://www.sappi.com/home.asp?pid=4 Jim Wingo *********** REPLY SEPARATOR *********** On 6/11/2002 at 1:18 AM Luke Copping wrote: >I am using an epson 1280 and recently came into posession of some gorgeous >looking paper (Sappi patina 80lb matte finish paper) I have tried most of >the settings on my computer.
