I use the Innova smooth cotton Hi white as my preferred matt paper, I have had no problems at all with edge curl on A3 or A3+ sizes, I have an Epson R3000, so no vacuum paper bed.

I have lost only 3 sheets due to poor quality control, (2 occasions a fly moulded into the paper, interesting but unnecessary texture)

The paper has a nice feel and handles colour well, and for a good price


I just received my Epson R3000, still in the box. I am planning to use the Innova with the R3000. Love the fly in the paper story! Weird, you would expect papers are made in clean labs. Anyway I think I am going to give the Innova a shot, the price is very interesting compared to Hahnemuhle rag, and so far as I have seen online texture samples ( ) it seems very close. Innova seems to give a slightly better shadow detail as well.

Thanks to all who replied!
