Title: Epson Prem Lustre Paper THOUGHTS PLEASE
Post by: russellsnr on February 23, 2017, 11:58:02 AM
Hi, Looking at some Epson Prem Lustre Paper beleive it is 250gsm.
The outer package looks tatty but the paper itself is still sealed inside so I have two questions (1) as the paper is still sealed will it still be useable? (2) If you have used this paper would you give your thoughts on it please?
Thank You.
Russ

Hi Russ,
This is strange for me as I am getting information from Google on that number from your attachment (S041785) that the paper is matte paper.
Are you paying for this paper?
If not, then open the package and inspect the surface and try it.
My Epson Luster paper says Ultra Premium  which I have 50 sheet boxes in three sizes with numbers like (041406).

As for real Epson ultra premium luster, perhaps the finest paper I have.
Correction....   I did a typo in Google. The correct number comes up with your paper.
The word Ultra is missing which suggests a step down from teh highest quality.
Sorry for my error.
