[quote="Annie"] I...just like to have the option of something a little smoother.
I printed today with Arches 88. It is unsized, but you are "de-buffering" and sizing anyway. Sized with starch it is very smooth, heavy and gives a slightly warm black and an average DMax. It's not cheap, but when it arrives, I think you will like its soft, smooth texture--definitely smoother that the back of any Kodak FB paper.
