I have used that Great White for several years now for proofs from digital files. But I am really hard pressed to sell a piece of 32# bond-type paper to someone as a fine-art print. I find it is a great cost saver to try a print on this before going to Epson Heavyweight Matte.

Some are photos of original art, others are original digital images which tend to be "flatter," with fairly simple colors. We're finding that the paper and the settings make a *huge* difference. We've been using Great White Imaging & Photo Paper, Matte Finish. The setting we use on the C80 is usually Archival Matte paper with 720dpi. We experiment a lot, because the printed result seldom looks exactly like what's on the monitor. But it usually looks great anyway. We have also used Saunders hot press art paper a little bit. The Automatic setting is the most predictable, though we've also used the Archival Matte setting, which made the image come out much darker then we expected, but very nice.
