After getting the Canon i960 printer, I had to try this paper. One it was cheap. And two, the diverse reviews here intrigued me to no end. After making a few prints on this paper, I began to think I knew why the paper was so cheap...it was THAT bad!

Then, when I came to do a review, I fortunately read the one that cautioned printing on the right side of the paper. There was a right side? I then read the directions with the paper--there is indeed a right side, and it is whiter than the back. It will be hard for some to tell the difference. But the difference from printing on the right side and the wrong side is truly astounding! I'm a big glossy paper fan, but there is a nice look to this matte paper. And it is MUCH cheaper than the Photo Paper Pro. It is also much cheaper than buying greeting card paper.

But be aware, the money you save not buying more expensive photo paper will be going to buying more ink. Compared to glossy paper, this paper drinks ink. I've been making calendars with it, and was shocked to see the way the ink was consumed. Yet, I can't see making calendars with any paper than this. It makes beautiful calendars! I print a borderless 8x10 photo, using my Canon photo software on the bright white side, and a calendar page, using my calendar software, on the opposite side. The pages bind very easily with a 1/4 inch plastic binding comb. And as I said, it makes a strikingly beautiful photo calendar.

Thus, if you have only one type of Canon paper on hand, I would have this one. But if you can't give up the glossy look for photos, it won't work for you. Personally, I prefer using Kodak paper when making glossy prints on my Canon. And Kodak has a satin finished paper, but there is the Kodak name all over the back. One of the great things about this Canon paper is you can print on both sides. But do make certain you know the front from the back, before printing a photo.

I have a Canon PowerShot G3 and a Canon S900 printer. I've tried all of the Canon papers, and they all produce excellent output. I had been using mostly the Photo Paper Pro, assuming that the most expensive paper produced the best output. However, my testing shows that for most photos, I actually prefer the output of this Matte Photo Paper. I found that the color of most objects and people looks more natural with the matte paper. Best of all, this paper is less than 25% the cost of the Photo Paper Pro on a per sheet basis. If you're using one of the Canon photo printers, you definitely need to try this paper out. I think you'll find the output excellent and the value outstanding.

I recently purchased a new canon printer and knew I wanted to order some paper along with the purchace of the printer. I love matte finish and had always selected this for my film photos. I ordered this paper with some trepidation because of the one reviewer that thought this paper was such poor quality. There have been some who have said it is difficult to tell which side of the paper to use, and this is true. There is no "Canon" written across the back of this paper. If you do select the 'wrong' side of the paper and didn't realize it, anyone would be dissapointed and I do hope the one reviewer will return here and try the other side of her paper. To use the right side of the paper, hold two pieces of the paper up to each other. The right side to print on is the brighter white and has a very lightly textured surface. The wrong side of the paper is more yellowish and is very smooth. When printing on the right side of the paper the photos come out absolutely stunning. My printer came with samples of the photo paper pro (glossy) which is probably quite nice if you are a glossy paper person. It wasn't until I could see my photos printed on this 4 x 6 matte paper that I could really appreciate the quality of my printer. If you are a lover of Matte finish, you will love this paper. It lets the photo grab the attention rather than the shiny finish.

This paper at first proved to drive my patience. I felt frustrated about the color quality coming out of my printer and was tempted to resort to glossy paper for my art prints. Blacks appeared gray, colors dark and muted compared to what I was seeing on screen. I changed my screen settings, changed my print setting, yet after four full page prints I was disappointed with the quality of what I was seeing. I was truly prepared to jump in with the gang of the one-star group, until I read the instructions (yes, instructions) that came with my paper.

*****THERE IS A RIGHT SIDE AND A WRONG SIDE ON THIS PAPER*****

If you print on the wrong side of the paper you will get results like those who rated this paper poorly. If you print on the correct side of the paper you will be pleased to find beautiful quality. Rich blacks, vibrant colors, and sharp edges.

I printed the same image of a bee I drew yesterday on the front and back of one of these sheets and posted it in the images of this product page to show just how much of a difference printing on the wrong side of the paper can make. If for whatever reason you gave this product a negative rating, make sure you didn't make this simple but quite devastating mistake.

The correct side is slightly smoother than the incorrect side. The right side is also much brighter than the incorrect side which is slightly yellowed. I know it will pain some of you, but the only way I've been able to tell and double check before wasting my ink is by folding the paper over under a good light source. The difference is subtle, but it is there.

Overall these papers are of legitimate quality. As for the fading of these papers I cannot say, but in ten or so years I'll give you an update. So far I see no problems.
