Sorry if I was unclear. All hot press papers were Strathmore. We also used a Canvas which was ok, and Cranes 90# cold press which fell apart during the process. It is a nice paper but does not survive the traditional photo process. Credit Denise for finding that Cranes 90# paper is not good for silver-gelatin. I didn't know.
We also used a 300# cold press paper that was very nice, but I forget the manufacturer.
The only way to find out what is good or not is to try it!
