Would appreciate the names of several. Dorothy Only one that I am aware of. Ilford Photo SMGP7 available only in wide rolls (24", 36" etc.) It is 7 mil weight, RC coated stock (how archival is RC???). When used with Ilford Archiva inks, Wilhelm tested it 70-80 before detectable fading. The Archiva inks have been successfully used in Epson 3000 printers. Ilford also has introduced a sheet line of their photo glossy papers that is somewhat heavier (9 mil vs 7 mil). It uses the same "receiving layer" technology. But several members of the list have been less than pleased with the results it gives when using OEM Epson inks. Using the Ilford Archiva Inks, it gives excellent results. Both of these papers will give you VERY photographic looking images when using the Archiva inks.
