I'm looking to print some panoramas on an Epson 3880 printer and would like some suggestions for satin/luster paper. So far, I was thinking about Red River Ultra Pro Satin in a 17x100 roll ($67.15) -- a fairly inexpensive option. However, I haven't dealt with roll paper before. Would it be better to find a paper that has 24x36 sheets and cut it down? Any suggestions for a satin/luster paper with 24x36 sheets?

Also, I noticed the printer looks like it will handle a little bit wider than 17 inches. How wide can you actually print?

I agree with Howard: I think your best option for lustre/satin/pearl would be ready cut pano papers from RR.

Lots of people cut from rolls, where it helps if you have a rotary trimmer. I never enjoyed the experience. I much prefer to cut from 24 x 36 inch sheets.

I think the only coated paper you will find in Arch D (24 x 26 inches), will be proofing paper and fine art cotton rag. I don't think you will find any RC papers. Probably the nearest you would find to a lustre finish would Museo Silver Rag, and even though the price of the paper has dropped significantly over recent years, you would be looking at $270 for 25 sheets.

The 3880 max sheet width is 17.39 inches.
