Canon i9900 Paper


68lb. UltraPro Gloss - Gloss Inkjet Paper. I've been printing up a storm now that I've gotten our Canon i9900 to work. Started with standard Canon paper, the Plus works really well and I love the status monitor that shows you how much ink there is the printer. But, the quality of the pictures is what is amazing.
In any case, paper is expensive, so I've shopped a little. The standard Canon paper is quite good, but naturally a little expensive. Here are some sample prices:
* "4x6 120 Sheets Paper Plus": This is about $22 for 120 sheets. $18/100 sheets
* "5x7 20 Sheets Paper Plus": This is $7.75 for 20 sheets or $39/100 sheets
They also don't make 8x10 for instance you have to get 8x11 and trim it.
As an alternative, my buddy Bob told me about "Red River": They have high quality paper too and also have color profiles for their papers as well. Costs are much lower and they have those odd standard sizes pictures frames come in. So for their "68lb. UltraPro Gloss":, you have some decent savings:
* 11x17 50 Sheets $38
* 8x10 50 Sheets $22
* 4x6 100 Sheets $18.40
* 5x7 100 Sheets $25.75
* 13x19 50 Sheets $49.95
Now these do require shipping, so you have to add $2 for each, so the savings are nominal. Like 10%, but for me having the odd sizes at 8x10 and 11x17 make it a no brainer.
