Hello All...

New to the site and am hoping someone might help me out.  I just got a Z2100 and am looking for good paper options for it.  My immediate need is a nice textured art paper.  HP had one but discontinued it and I'm not sure where to go.  I also need some good options for photo papers and canvas.  Any help would be very, very appreciated.

Thanks!

I would buy A4 (or US letter size, depending where you are) sample packs from Canson and Hahnemühle at the very least. You can get bogged down with too much sample paper, but I would also look at Harman, Innova has free sample packs on their US website, Museo, and Moab.

As for textured papers, it depends on how heavily textured you want. I like Hahnemühle German Etching for a medium textured paper that holds detail very well. Really, there are too many to go through, everything from very lightly textured vellums and Japanese rice papers, to heavily textured watercolor papers.

If you are in the US, then itSupplies/Atlex has a samples page:

as does B&H:

Hahnemuhle William Turner is my favorite textured paper.  Nice whiteness to the paper and no OBAs.

Thanks for the input!  From what I read, Hahnemuhle is who made the art paper HP discontinued.  I may see if I can get that.  My printer also has Hahn presets already installed.  Canson has a sample pack off to me already.  I'll see about getting one from Hahnemuhle as well.  Medium texture is what I'm looking for.  Something for restored antique photos as well as a good art print paper.  Thanks again for the help!  I really appreciate it.  "Now to find some art paper" sure sounded easy lol.  Cheers!

The HP (HM) Textured Fine Art 310gsm is Hahnemühle William Turner 310gsm. The other weight HP TFA 265gsm is alike but there is no equivalent weight William Turner. There is a 190gsm William Turner though.

Hello
How are your prints so far? I Just ordered a z2100 should arive this weekend.
I have order some Canson Montval Torchon & some Inkpress warm tone rag
both have amazing print longevity with vivera inks.

I'm pretty impressed with it so far.  I've done some test prints and compared them to my previous suppliers prints from a roland.  I thought it was pretty comparable.  I liked the flesh tones from the HP a little better.  They felt warmer to me.  The picture I used did have a blueish white tint in part of it that came out more blue then on the roland print.  My only complaint is the printer and I are arguing a little about orientation.  I tell it print landscape and it decides I'm wrong and prints it the way it likes haha.  That and it wants to calibrate it's colors quite a bit it seems.  I'm still in the learning curve with it though.  I'm sure the error is me...  well, pretty sure lol.

I have out sourced larger prints for a Roland and I have a 8 color epson 2400
so I am hoping to match that quality. I did not feel it was worth the extra money for
z3200ps since I only print paintings on rag type paper and don't need a gloss enhancer.
How is to run sheets? I am a little nervous about that

I haven't tried sheets yet.  I have a few sample packs on the way that are sheets.  I'll let you know how that goes.
