Default Two sided photo paper

Is any one aware of a two sided (i.e. glossy and printable on both sides) printer paper comperable to HP's Premium Plus Glossy Photo paper?

Thank You

Default BTW

HP suggests part #C1846A, but I don't see anywhere in the description on their website anything about it being two sided.

I am not certain that using two-sided glossy paper, if you can find it, is a good idea. If you print one side and then turn it over to print the other side, I would think you would get roller marks and possible other degradation/damage to the first image. It might not bee so bad if you let the first image dry for several hours before attempting to print the second side.

I've used 2-sided glossy and semi-gloss paper from Redriver Paper on an Epson 1270 with good results. I used 11x17 sheets to create 8.5x11 photo "magazines". I did let it dry for many hours before printing the second side of each sheet.

Both HP and Epson have good double sided papers. The HP is the HP brochure and flyer paper - 44 lb(matte and gloss). The gloss does not work with the Epson 1270. The gloss comes in 8x10 and 11x17. The Epson is Double-Sided Matte Paper - 47 lb, available in 8X10 and produces great looking saturated output. I am looking at the i960 but need to test it with the HP double sided gloss paper.
