Last year Red River Paper sent me a sample box of their gorgeous papers. As luck (unluck?) would have it, my printer and computer were not playing nicely together at the time that I received the box of goodies; and being the complete techno-phobe that I am, I pretended the problem didn’t exist until recently. And I sighed. And I stomped. I might have shed a couple tears. Or not. Anywhooo, my knight in technological shining armor (aka Big Dude) came to my rescue and made all my machines play together nicely. And I finally tried these papers. And I. LOVED. them.
Here are some sample pictures of the annual family collage that I made (for my boys’ albums) and printed on various papers. Keep in mind these are MACRO images (very close-up) so that you can see the paper details larger than life.
Here’s the collage, printed on (from left to right): River Linen, Aurora Fine Art White, and Arctic Polar Luster.

And for birthday cards I just printed, here is double sided Polar Matte:
And here’s the super fabulous part of Red River Paper. They make their ICC-profiles super-duper accessible. Which makes it easy to make your printed product look like the image on your computer screen. (rant: I shoot with Canon gear. I have a Canon printer. In the past I’ve bought Canon Paper. Wouldn’t you think Canon would provide ICC-profiles for their own paper to print in their own machines? But, they don’t. Not that I could ever easily find or incorporate. Shame on Canon. Kudos to Red River! Rant over.)
