I print with an Epson 3800, using mainly Epson Premium Glossy, semi-gloss and Premium presentation matte papers. I am curious about ink usage. I would assume that the glossy, semigloss and lustre papers would use a fairly similar amount of ink per print. Does matte paper use more ink due to its more absorbent surface? I sometimes do proofing on the matte paper because the paper itself is cheaper, but I wonder if increased ink use might cancel out the difference.
