Canon Fine Art Bright White print side

I just got a box of Canon Fine Art Bright White 230gsm paper, and for the life of me I cannot tell which side to print on.  Both sides appear to me to be the same as far as color, brightness, and texture. I have tried several suggestions such as using a wet finger to test stickness of each side and marking each side with a magic marker, but there doesn't seem to be any difference that I can detect.


Is there a way to tell by the way it is packaged in the box?  The paper is cellophane wrapped with a piece of cardboard enclosed in the wrapping, which is facing the top of the box. 


Any suggestions would be appreciated.

That particular media may be coated to print on both sides.  To make sure before printing, please contact our support group at 1-800-652-2666.

Re: Canon Fine Art Bright White print side

The person I spoke with at Canon did not know if the paper was coated on both sides, but he said that Canon paper is normally boxed with the priint side up.   So I will use the paper that way, and see how it turns out.


Thanks for your help, I appreciate it.
