Most photographers have one or two favourite papers for printing, whether using a Canon or an Epson inkjet printer. They normally begin with Canon or Epson papers, which makes sense because the printers come with a set of profiles for their suite of papers. However, there's a much wider world of papers and lots of new looks and finishes to discover out there.

For example, Canson's BFK Rives Pure White is described as a timeless, classic digital fine art paper. It's a matte paper, so it produces a softer rendition compared to a high gloss surface. The paper is produced in the Arches Mill in France, using a traditional mould-made cylinder process. It's the papermaking process that is responsible for creating the paper's unique surface which gives an almost painterly feel to the final print. The 100% cotton rag base has a soft and supple texture which enhances the detail in the original image. Traditionally used by printmakers, BFK Rives Pure White uses a proprietary inkjet coating and is free of all optical brightening agents.

To get the best out of a paper requires a good ICC printer profile. Profiles produced by Canson for specific printer models can be downloaded from its website (Canon, Epson, HP) for all their papers. This is a great way to test different options and once you settle on a smaller number of papers, you may choose to have custom printer profiles made for them.
