> >TOTALLY AGREE. But I still think you miss my point. In your posts, you "seem" >to dismiss papers based totally on their cost. No NO! For my PERSONAL PRINTS, and I have a LOT of images to print, I can't afford the Very expensive papers. WHEN I SELL one for hundreds of dollars I WILL use the best paper. Its just that for my own use, I can't justify the very high cost of Luminos papers. I have samples of them and lyson prints. They are very very nice. But to be honest with you there are other papers out there that I like as much that cost much less. For instance if a paper is not pure white, I don't care WHAT its other attributes are. I detest cream colored paper and simply will not use it. If someone who buys a print of mine says they want it on cream paper, I'll print it on cream paper. but NOT for MY uses. I've >said it before and I'll restate again, one would be a fool to buy more >expensive papers with no appreciable advantages. But until I see evidence to >the contrary, I'm assuming that Lyson and Luminos papers offer advantages with >their inks that other papers don't. Either in longevity, image quality, look, >feel, etc. Therefore, your posts lead one to believe that you're willing to >forgo these advantages for the sake of saving money. But only for MY prints. When I sell prints, I use better paper. As stated many times before, I have found a paper I truly like and its priced in my ballpark. Its Media Street's Dual Sided matte paper. I have tried a LOT of papers during the last year, and I find none that make better looking prints than this paper, unless you quadruple the price. So until I find something I like better, I'll stick with this paper for my own prints. jerry - Please do not include an entire message in your response.
