    Have been looking at Moab Entrada paper which is a beautiful paper. However, upon looking at the Moab web page seems the paper is recomended for Dye ink. Is there any downside to using this paper on Epson pigment ink printers (p900/3880).

    None that I know of. Being a matte paper you would use MK for Black. The Moab website I read just a second ago says:

    “It is compatible with both dye and pigment inks ensuring that when used with archival inks, your prints will last for generations.”

    I’ve been using Entrada Natural as my main matte paper for many years on both Epson 3800 and 3880 printers. I use the Moab profile and print with both the Epson driver for color and the QTR driver for black and white. It is true that the blacks do not measure quite as deep as glossy papers but one sees that really only with side by side prints. I occasionally use glossy papers, Canson Baryta and Platine are my favorites but there’s something special about a lovely print on matte paper… and there’s a lot less reflection when viewed off center.
