Epson Premium Glossy Photo Paper (170) is an instant-drying, high-gloss paper with a resin coated (RC) base. The RC base allows the paper to maintain vivid, lifelike colors that rival traditional prints. A favorite among photographers and graphic artists, its non-cockling characteristics make it ideal for photographs, promotional pieces, layouts, portfolio images, proofs, displays and posters. It creates high-quality prints by offering maximum ink coverage with brilliant color inks that dry in an instant. This paper can also be easily laminated to provide protection from light and moisture. Like all of Epson's innovative media, this paper is engineered to give you the highest resolution and color saturation possible. Epson's printer driver software actually optimizes the amount of ink released onto the page, based on the type of paper used. As always, EPSON supplies guarantee EPSON quality.
