    I'm hoping someone here can help me, after a very long break from printing I have access to a darkroom again and I need to buy some black and white printing paper I used to use either Ilford Pearl or Satin and I really cannot recall which. I have an old pack of jessops Luster which I am told is the same as Kentmere luster and this has a very similer texture or finish to the Ilford paper I used to use.

    Can anyone tell me if I should order Ilford Pearl or Satin to get the similer finish to luster paper by kentmere or jessops?

    I used to use Ilford Pearl all the time, I think it was similar to a luster finish but I don't know if it is similar to the other papers you mentioned.

    Ilford Pearl would be my choice. Satin is in between luster and matte.
