Jerry, No, actually, I don't care for the Media Street Dual Side Matte. I believe you when you say it prints very well but the dead flat whiteness doesn't appeal to me. I have a sample but haven't printed on it yet. The heavier Denali papers are white but with a warmer tone. Denali is also acid free and probably slightly alkaline which is good in environments where paper tends to become more acidic over time or so I've been told. The Media Street Dual Side Matte is a slightly acidic paper based on my crude tests and this is another strike against it. Glacier Photo Matte is more interesting in that respect since it is described as acid free but the description (not to mention the name) also sounds like a similar cold bright white. Right now I'm sick of testing papers but will get a pack of Glacier to test based on your recommendation after I recover a little. It might be something I or one of my students will need sometime in the future. What I really would like is a smoother version of Royal Plush that prints as well using the Generations inks in the same or a little lighter weight. It's not that I'm picky it's that...well, yes, I am picky :-) Wayne -- Wayne Simpkins Univ of Memphis, Dept of Art http://www.memphis.edu firstname.lastname@example.org > From: Jerry Olson <email@example.com> > Organization: Western Echoes > Reply-To: firstname.lastname@example.org > Date: Tue, 22 Feb 2000 10:36:58 -0600 > To: email@example.com > Subject: Re: business cards > > If you like the Denali Matte paper, you will LOVE the Media Street Dual Sided > Matte, or the new Glacier papers.
