the problem with rc is the misconception that it is olde bad rc from the 70/60/50s
and "a plastic print" when they can infact pe processed to be as arcival as fb prints.
i enjoy printing on rc .. saves water and time, and looks as good as fb most of the time ..
i dont like the logo on the back though, and dislike attempting to wax or paint on them which seems
more difficult than hand coated or fiber paper
I think the bad opinion about RC papers also comes from the fact, that many contain own developer.
