Profile for Epson Ultra Premium Glossy for Stylus Photo R2880 printer
I have been using Epson Premium Glossy on an R2880 Epson printer, with the appropriate profile without problems, but now that I have purchased the "Ultra" version of the same paper, I can find no specific profile for the "Ultra" version at the Epson website. Can anyone please advise me if there is such a profile somewhere to be found, or is the "Ultra" version simply a heavier card?
Thanks for any advice.

A profile for that paper is not listed.
The User's Guide, page 16, lists "Ultra Premium Photo Paper Glossy," does not specify that the profile needs to be downloaded.
I can't check for you on my 2880, as I am out of Photo Black and only Matt options are available when that cart is installed.
P.S. I did run across one website that said to use the Photo Glossy profile.

Thanks for your response, Larry. Your findings are the same as mine.
The R2880, ex-factory, does not carry the profile for Ultra Premium Glossy paper - it is a newer paper than the printer itself - nor is an "Ultra" profile shown on any Epson site, including the one that you mentioned above, which I already have consulted.
This is odd, because other Epson "Ultra" versions of "Premium" papers have their own profiles available for download.
As I said, I think it is just a heavier paper than the Premium Glossy, but Epson can't be bothered to explain this!
