Whoo hoo! My Epson 1900 arrived today. Had to do some rearranging to make room for it.

What papers are you folks using for printing large (11"x17" or 13"x19")? And where are you buying it?

My local Fry's had the 13x19 Epson Premium Glossy in stock but I thought I would check here first.

Any issues using any non-Epson (Ilford, Kodak, RedRiver, etc.) papers? How about color profiles for these non-Epson papers?

Thanks in advance!

I have the Epson 2400 and like the premium luster. I have some prints that are five years old without any noticeable color shifts.

Thanks Steve, Fry's had a 50 pack of the Ultra Premium Luster (8.5x11) for half off ($17.95) that I picked up. I'm anxious to see how that looks.

So far I'm all Epson & very, very happy with the results. I had the good fortune to buy a large selection of premium Glossy & lustre in several sizes locally from someone getting away from printing the very same week I ordered my R2880. Being up here in Canada many of the aftermarket brands are harder to get (cost wise that is) so I'm likely going to stick with what I already think is doing a great job.

I use Premium Semigloss or Matte Heavyweight, depending on the subject. Where I am the third party papers are Ilford or cheapo-stinkos. Ilford does provide profiles for download.
BTW, on the Epson site there are profiles for the R1900 that are newer and better than those on the bundled disc.

Yup. I love mine. So far the only papers I've used are Epson. I've been really happy with all of them so far. Maybe I'll venture out and try some Hahnemuhle, Ilford and others. But right now I'm happy with the Epson papers

Hi Rodger, I also have just taken delivery of a new Epsom 1900 and have been busy setting things up, convert from Canon S9000. I have also decided to opt for an independent paper from company called Fotospeed, based here in the UK they offer a very comprehensive range of support including free profile service which I intend to use! Perhaps we could swap user notes along the way.

Check at Atlex.com. (external link) Their prices are generally as low as you'll find.

Yeah, I grabbed the 4 there last night and installed them. Thanks!

I still prefer good old Epson Premium Glossy, but keep some Hahnemuhle Torchon on hand for images that need a highly textured mat finish.

I use mainly Epson premium glossy. I always seem to have a slight sepia shift on all of my black and white images from my R1900. I wonder if it is the paper or a printer issue?

Monochrome is difficult for a colour inkjet printer. Epson have done a good job with the R2880 but with my previous 950 I had to let the printer manage the colour otherwise I got similar problems.

Monitor, Paper and printer must all be colour managed before you start or all bets are off anyway.

Printer issue. All the reviews of the R1900 say that it does not do B/W well. The reason usually cited is that it uses only one black ink (there are two, glossy and matte, but they are never used together). I bought it anyway, because I like the expanded yellow/orange/red gamut.
