I assume the Arches Infinity doesn't scuff or flake cuz it's danged
expensive like Photo Rag.

Can you or anyone clear up the distinctions between the various
"velvet" papers floating around?

I have abunch of the uncoated Somerset Velvet, which used to be a
favorite of the IRIS era. But since we've been delived the
photo-enhanced SV, the differences have been elusive to this sleepy
academic. ...Epson Velvet Fine Art Paper, and Somerset Velvet for

I think this is the same question Loris is asking

Hi Darryl,

I would also humbly suggest (in spite of Cone Editions suggestion)
though Hannemuhle Photo Rag does make a beautiful print, it is
extremely expensive,
it flakes badly, it scratches/scuffs badly. I was very disappointed
it. I'd be happy to sell you the unused 24 x 30 sheets I have left.

There are hundreds of papers one can try. Three of my favorites are
Infinity, Epson Velvet Fine Art Paper, and Somerset Velvet for Epson.
UltraSmooth FIne Art paper by Epson has had some problems. I have
used Smooth
Fine Art by Epson and liked that also.

The 4000 is a nice printer. Have fun with it! Maybe after they see
work you and the students do with it, they'll give you a raise after
