I tried the premimum double weight glossy and charcoal R w/ a 1200 and OEM ink. Both bled alot - unusable. I was warned that the premium glossy wouldn't work with a 6-ink printer, but that the charcola R would. Jon Cone said he likes the Tapestry I think. I make test prints with half letter size sheets, even at that tiny size the print resolution with oem ink/paper is quite good. Printing this size will be the toughest test of bleeding and may explain some of what drives Epson when engineering their ink/papers. Most of their customers are presumably printing snapshots? I wonder under what conditions these papers have been made to work? Dave - Turn off HTML mail features. Keep quoted material short.
