Epson Hot Press Bright Paper

I received a roll of Epson Hot Press Bright paper earlier today to try out and I'm keeping my fingers crossed hoping that I will like it, but it'll probably be a couple of days before I really get a feel for it. I'm printing out a paper profiling chart right now and I'll let it dry for about 24 hours before I generate an ICC profile for the paper. Unfortunately Epson doesn't provide a canned profile for the combination of this paper with an Epson 4000 printer, but a custom profile, theoretically, should work just fine!

I've been doing most of my printing on Hahnemuhle glossy pearl paper and I really like the results, but there are some qualities of the Epson that I really want to try out, and I'll update the results after I have a chance to do some serious printing.
