Source For Paper For Larger-format Printers?
Posted 31 May 2009 - 12:54 AM
We went to the office supply store looking for paper the other day, and what a bust! Two different packs of 11x17 paper, only one of them for inkjet printing. DH wants to do prints of some of his scanned paintings (one painting got water damaged, so he scanned it), and he's bummed that the paper we found is ...meh.
Any suggestions for good paper? Brands, types, sources, any information welcome!

One note, I have the Canon iP4500 and the Canon Pro9500 and the first one can be used for all quality types, from everyday-use paper to pro paper, whereas the pro printer really is for pro paper too. The high quality ink only looks good on glossy plus (premium) and special papers. That's due to the pigmented ink cartridges. Be sure to have the right ICC color profiles for all your papers to get perfect printing. They are downloadable at Canon and Epson for all their papers.
