But I must make 2 observations. 1) The only time he's distingquished between personal prints and commercial prints is when I started responding about using the best papers available for his clients. In responses to others who also think the Lyson and Luminos papers are too expensive, he makes no such distinction. In fact, he goes so far as to say others papers are just as good for much less. For all I know he's right. But that hasn't been satisfactorily proven in my opinion. It seems like the Lyson/Luminos papers are in fact the best match for Lyson/Luminos inks. 2) His he REALLY going to print 2000 16x20s for his personal use? 2000? He says he has that many and he had inferred that with that many images the paper cost difference would be significant (and it would). But 2000 prints @ 16x20 inches for personal use? I'm sorry, but I find that a little difficult to believe. The only reason I responded to this thread in the first place in because anytime anybody mentioned Lyson/Luminos papers Jerry immediately responded by "too expensive" with no qualifications. Finally, I felt I had to respond because I didn't (and still don't) see where $2-$3 difference per 17x22 inch sheet makes a whole lot of difference to a person who took off down this archival road because clients were returning prints due to fading. That's what started hie whole trek. It was his concern in his comercial ventures, not his personal desires. That being the case, it made no sense to me NOT to use the recommended papers with the ink he had chosen. So for those who haven't followed this line of discussion over the past 3-4 months, your data in incomplete. THIS THREAD STARTED WITH COMMERCIAL CONCERNS, not personal concerns. If you don't believe me, search out the archives and read for yourself. === Explore potential income opportunities with Greer and Associates at http://www.ibocity.com/greeraa.
