The Galerie Prestige Gold Fiber Silk Paperfeatures an inkjet layer coated directly onto a true baryta (barium sulphate) layer and fiber base to produce images with exceptional gamut for vivid color reproduction as well as creamy whites and velvety blacks for the unique look of traditional silver halide photo paper.
The media creates high definition images with an extended tonal range and excellent archival properties making it a must for exhibition quality prints. This versatile media is perfect for color images with vibrancy and depth or for producing a sympathetic re-creation of a traditional black and white image. As with true black and white images, the photographer can create the look of chemically toned sepia, gold, selenium and blue images but unlike chemical toning, the number of variations are only limited by the photographer’s imagination.
Gold Fiber Silk is compatible with both pigment and dye based printers. However for optimum results the use of pigment inks is recommended.

Gaylord M. from BAKERSFIELD, CA:
This is a very thick and heavy paper. Surface reminds me of the old bromide papers used in the darkroom. Not supper glossy, but bright enough and smooth enough to make up for that.
I did have some initial issues with head strikes in an Epson 3880 on the edge so I had to change the platen to "Widest" to clear the edge. A different feed door method may be called for too in some printers. Also, the thickness makes it very tight going into archival plastic sleeves too as used in presentation binders. I suspect one edge on mine may be cut a little less than square as it feeds a bit sideways verses the Epson stock for some reason. Might be the rollers picking it up sooner on one side with it being so thick. I've used a guide for it to feed whcih helps.
A pricey paper too, and maybe best left for your very best prints that you have analyzed and critiqued over several days.
