Dave tries out MediaStreet.com's inkjet paper range...
Recently, a friend of mine who runs a well-known internet/mailorder photo products business asked me to evaluate a range of inkjet papers made by MediaStreet.com. He was interested in carrying the papers himself, but wanted an objective third-party test of them first. He needed to know how compatible they were with different printers, and how well they worked overall. Ever helpful, I said "Sure, I'll get right on it", completely ignoring the typically absurd backlog of other projects I had burning my toes at the time.
It's thus now several months later, but I finally did have a look at the MediaStreet papers, and ended up quite impressed. Figuring that something approaching 100% of our readers are inkjet users, I thought I'd write up the results of my testing to show on the IR site. This article is a brief digest of several weeks of off-and-on testing of a variety of MediaStreet's papers.
The bottom line? I was so impressed with MediaStreet's papers that I invited them to become a site sponsor of the Imaging Resource: I'm very comfortable recommending them to all and sundry as an excellent line of third-party papers, offering both a wider range of surfaces and better prices than most manufacturer's proprietary formulations.
