I have a Kodak ESP7 printer, and I am also using Kodak ink... I have already bought some Kodak Ultra Premium 5 star 6x4 photo paper, and was very impressed with it. So I then decided to give the A4 paper size of this paper a run too.
I am an amateur photographer and I have extremely high standards when it comes to the end product. I don't believe in photo-shopping every picture before it's printed. A true photographer should get it right in their head and the camera before shooting, and this paper really does complement that premise - It is a very happy marriage of ink and paper with colour richness and vibrance thrown in for good measure.
This paper is very thick and does not corrugate like a sheds tin roof when you print darker colours onto it. Not only is the printed photo guaranteed not to fade for a lifetime (if printed with Kodak ink on Kodak paper), but the colours are so much richer, sharper and lifelike thanks to Kodak's clever technology.
The printed photo is the same as something that you would expect to get back from a Kodak Lab, and with this paper, the colours are locked in for a lifetime and won't fade.
Because today's standards seem to be dropping somewhat, I am rather hard to impress, but I am so impressed with this paper that I would thoroughly recommend it, especially at the price.
If you are going to print an A4 blow-up of your best photo's... Do it on this paper. You won't be disappointed.
The only downside to using ANY A4 sized photo paper is that it does go rather heavy on your ink. So bear this in mind when you print to it.
