Over the past 6-8 months I’ve written four articles for pdnonline.com (the same company who publishes Photo District News magazine) on the topics of inkjet paper, books and portfolios. The titles of the articles and direct links to them are below:
–Inkjet Paper Tips, Part I: “Fine Art Fiber” Tips and Techniques
–Inkjet Paper Tips, Part II: “Fine-Art Matte and Watercolor Paper” Tips and Techniques
–Portfolio Tips, Part I: Do-It-Yourself Options
–Portfolio Tips, Part II: Outside Printing Sources
The photo shown below is from the article: “Portfolio Tips, Part II: Outside Printing Sources.” A detailed caption follows below that is not in the online article.

Some of these tips are covered in my new book: “301 Inkjet Tips and Techniques: An Essential Printing Resource for Photographers (Course Technology PTR),” which has recently started shipping. Since I wrote the article, there have been many new Fiber semi-gloss and Fiber gloss papers that have been released. Look for updates soon here on inkjettips.com.
