I was given a sample pack Awagami Inkjet Paper by my paper supplier and then subsequently ordered a pack of A3 to make prints for a local artist. (See top left-hand section of the print.)
The first thing I learned that, more than ever, paper choice and image choice is vital. The paper dictates the image…
The “Bizan Natural (Thick) Hand Made” is, I guess, the paper everyone thinks of – and it is beautiful! The “natural” papers are quite yellow/creamy and it seemed to me that they work best with black & white images better because colours are more influenced by the colour of the paper… I think the print of the tree worked pretty well.
There are “White” papers that will work fine with colour printing but they are similar to most other photo rag-type papers which are much cheaper I would imagine.
The paper that really impressed me was the “Unryu (Thin)”. My wife’s image of the “Levailliant’s Cisticola” worked perfectly with this paper. The scan of the print does not really do the print justice. The whitish lines you see are delicate silvery fibres which enhance the image beautifully.
I made these prints on a Canon iPF 8400 and, for obvious reasons, used the canned profiles.
I still have a few pieces of sample paper left and will try them out on my Piezography printer – I see that they have added some Awagami “curves” (profiles) so that will be interesting.
I’m not sure if that was the kind of information you were looking for?
