    Lynn,

    I don't have any answer for you except that my experience with the cheap paper has ben very poor. I do use Canon 'High Resolution Paper" for drafts. It's about $0.10 per page, and I use less ink, but it isn't quite photo quality. If your paper costs are killing you how about the ink?

    It probably depends on your printer. Epsons seem to perform best with Epson paper. My Canon i960 works great with both Canon plus and all of the Kodak papers. I want to try some Ilford, cuz I used to dig that stuff for b&w back in the day.

    One of the sites where I read a review of printers had a link to a good bulk paper supplier, but unfortately I don't have it handy.

    Try here.

    Affordable paper, NOT
    Lynne, do you have Costco there? I just picked up Epson Premium Glossy, 120 count boxes, 3 for $54.00, I guess that is $18 apiece so .15 per sheet....They also had Kodak Premium as well all 8x10.

    Hi Deacon, thanks... we do have a Costco not too far away but I lucked out and found my Office Max Satin 10 mil 75 sheets for 29.99 and I really like paper. They seemed to stop doing it for a while.

    I will check out Costco tho..sounds like they have good deals.
