On this episode of #AskBC, Justin talks about what to expect out of printing on matte papers in terms of mid tone and shadow detail. He also runs down available matte media from Breathing Color including hot and cold pressed options.

Later in the show, Justin covers listener questions on choosing a RIP for use on a wide-format Epson and Windows operating system, and producing canvas prints on direct to garment printers.
