    This might be a goofy idea, but has anyone tried using Light Impressions non-buffered Westminster two-ply mt board for pt/pd printing? I was in our local ProPhoto Supply store, and I happened to notice some.

    It appears to have a smooth surface, two-ply is reasonably heavy for pt/pd printing, it's non-buffered, having a pH of 7.5 +/- 0.5, it's 100% rag, and it has a nice warm appearance to it. Light Impressions comments that the pH may go down a bit after the package is opened.

    Unless someone gives it a thumbs down, I might pick some up and try it out. Just kind of curious.
