    I think a lot of comments were made on this under a thread labelled the same or similar to your label. Might be worth a search

    I just tried it for a postcard exchange and I love it!
    The texture is beautiful, it tones nicely and is just all round fun to print with.
    I'm still looking for a way to keep it from floating in the wash but that's a minor detail.
    Another Ilford product that will be in my regular routine.

    Yep, just done a couple of prints and it sure is nice. Tones well in selenium and the paper just plain feels good.

    Oops, Sorry! Over excitement!

    It's not a cheap paper by any means, but my word it's something special. I printed a wedding image on an 8x10 and have been showing it to clients and they love it so I think it'll sell for a premium.

    Dear Ryan,

    Very pleased you like it......if you wash in an upright archival washer just clip a film weight to the bottom of the print, thats what our tech service and QC people do...

    I got my card from Rob Skeoch this morning about 10 mins after I posted.

    Firstly : great shot and thank you.

    The ART 300 looks really good ( I thought it may be a bit small ) I print ART 300 big ( I don't mean to be an a**e but then why would'nt I print big...) and it held up very well in the post....( and the Royal Mail d***l print they put on did'nt stick to the front...? ).

    Thanks again.

    It's expensive but not out of line for a premium paper. I'd just like to see smaller sheet count packs so I could try it out without spending so much.

    It's funny that, we got a load of requests from students wanting us to split up the 8x10 boxes into packs of ten, it wasn't a big hassle for us to do it. We haven't offered it online yet though but maybe we should?!
