Has anyone tried any paper from the following?
http://www.stcuthbertsmill.com/index.asp

I've heard they make some of the Epson fine art grades. I can't find any online reviews . Whet is the difference between Somerset Photo and Somerset enhanced (both stains).

The prices for their paper are a lot cheaper than others in the market. ( a pack of 50 is cheaper than 25 from most others).

Thanks Adam and Rob. Tbh printing is the part of my work that needs a big improvement - I'm determined to get it right as I want to enter more salon print competitions this year - but until I get the paper / print combination I'm happy with I m reluctant to do so.

I have seen prints done on the Somerset paper and it was beautiful. Almost had a velvet finish to it.

I've used Somerset papers for ink jet, Cyanotype and Lino printing, they are very good indeed.

Recently though I came across this:
http://www.digitalpromo.co.uk/mediarange-mrink102-5760dpi-super-matte-white-double-sided-photo-inkjet-paper-a4-200gsm-50-sheets-p-3612.html

The price is ridiculous and the prints show every nuance of the image. The price also means that I can reprint many times, I always find something that I hadn't seen on screen in a print.
