Hi

Can anybody suggest thinner double sided paper in A2 format for photo printer ? I need to print and bind repros from original binded notes. The final product must look as much as possible to original. The paper should not exceed 100 g/m2. Typical double sided papers like Photo Rag Duo or Epson Double sided Matte Paper dont work out because these are too thick. The paper should be similar to regular offset paper preferably natural white.

Thank You

Check EFI proof paper 5125 duo-matt - it's 125g/m^2, but inkjet paper is heavier than regular offset.

There's Mitsubishi Imposition Proof 100g/m^2, but it's only available in rolls.

The inkjet coated types have a lot of OBA usually, see attached spectral plots image.
I often use an offset paper that is enhanced for digital print, Biotop 3+ etc, that has a natural color. At 80-120 grams still not opaque enough for a good dual sided print and the paper warps at high inkloads. Not printing that sharp either and the gamut suffers compared to normal inkjet papers.

Thank You Czornyj and Ernst

I know that the selection of duo sided and specially light weight media is really small. Fortunatelly inkload is not high in this project. I thought about offset paper too. I don't worry so much about warps but rather dot gain and too low densities. First i try different offset papers as this is something i can do now. I also order EFI or Redriver 125g duo sided which i also found.
Third option would be self coating. Interesting but lot of time consuming and experimentation.

If your budget it`s not an issue, I will go for this Canson Infinity (http://www.canson-infinity.com/en/ragphotd220.asp). It comes on A2 size and it`s great in color repros.
