Epson Traditional Paper (Nearest Equivalent Innova Art IFA-49)

However for a true Matt Archival paper we would recommend Innova's FibaPrint product (IFA-39) - even though it is more expensive.Here is what paper expert  Jeremy Daalder of Image Science, Australia  says:

"FibaPrint Ultrasmooth  - it's the closest thing we've foundto Epson Archival Matte in many ways (although it is more expensive -but we think worth it). It has a very bright white, extremely
smooth surface. It's a much better weight than EAM (280 versus 180), soif you're after a really smooth surfaced fine art paper, it's a great choice. EAM is still a better proofing paper though, given its very low cost, but its reputation for yellowing (Epson can't even sell thispaper branded as 'archival' in many other countries), means it isn't agreat choice for selling your work."

ParmaJet Alternative Papers

Permajet buys in papers from a variety of sources and therefore has an extensive range.  Please contact us regarding the equivalent for any particular product.

 The equivalents are those selected by OPUSalbums.com based on the descriptions given by the manufacturers, and should not be taken as more than approximations.  No responsibility is taken for any differences in specification or the resulting output.  In all events, paper works best with the paper manfucaturers' ICC profies and the user should not use a different profile from that provided.  The nearest weights are selected.  These are generally within 15% of the alternative manfacturer (higher/lower)

OPUSalbums.com is always open to advice on this subject.  If you think there is a better fit please let us know.
