There is a universe of excellent cotton digital printing papers. However, IMO the Innova ECG is special. Of course there are no OBAs and the paper is 100% cotton with a heft and hand that is extremely satisfying…nothing flimsy here! The paper is slightly to the warm side and hence will complement those landscape images that will benefit from a warmer tone. What makes the paper special is the unique coating that to my eyes adds depth and presence to one’s prints. That is not to denigrate the quality of other cotton papers, but simply to point out that those seeking a special sense of dimensionality will find that prints made with the Innova ECG have to my eyes the special “look” that I find unique. The paper is well packed with interleaving sheets and is easy to handle. The ICC profile from Innova is I believe relatively new and works well with my P800. Indeed, I have not found the need to have “personal ICC profiles” constructed. IMO the paper is worth the small additional cost.

As stated in my previous review of this paper, the Innova Exhibition Cotton Gloss paper is my “go to” paper for landscapes. There are other cotton gloss papers from which to chose. However, the Innova is free of OBAs and the surface texture is such that additional depth and dimensionality are present in the final print. For those serious about printing the Innova Exhibition Cotton Gloss deserves serious consideration.
