Epson Stylus Photo 2100 Users & Glossy Paper ?

  Tinkey Winkey 22:30 01 Nov 2004

Having invested in this semi-pro printer I was dimayed to find out that the best, most photographic looking paper (Glossy Paper Photo Weight GPPW ) is no longer available from the Epson Online Store ?

It says the GPPW has been replaced with 'Premium Glossy Photo Paper PGPP'.

But when you click on the compatible printers link for this PGPP paper, the 2100 is not listed !??

Further more, there's no indication of this papers
Lightfastness in years or it's compatibility with UltraChrome Inks ?

I suspect this paper is probably for dye based Inks ?

Does anyone know why this paper has been replaced and what the Lightfastness rating is for the replacement paper ?

Thanks Cook2

Looks like it may be best to steer clear of GPPW (presuming it can still be obtained) & use the 'Premium Semigloss Photo Paper' instead as it is also rated as 45 year lightfast and has similar, if slightly less glossy finish as the GPPW.

I'm still keen to learn more about the replacement 'Premium Glossy Photo Paper '.

What's the lightfastness rating ?

Is it really for Ultrachrome Inks ?

How does the finish compare with GPPW & PSPP !?

Does anyone Know ?
