Default Best Photo Paper for Canon 9100

Hi All,
Other than the Canon Paper pro, what other brands are as good (and hopefully cheaper w/o too much sacrifice)?

Typical what is best to use? Matte? Semi-Gloss? ??

Thank you
Eric

I have used the Canon matte paper (50 8.5x11 sheets for about $12) and have also used the Photo Paper Plus Glossy (PPPG) (50 4x6 sheets for about $12 also).

Right now the 5x7 Canon Paper comes in Photo Paper Plus Glossy, but I have head that they are coming out with it in Photo Paper Pro (PPP).

The PPPG is what I would call a semigloss, especially when compared to the PPP.

www.buy.com does have a kit which is 10 packs, each of 20 sheets, of PPP for borderless printing for about $50, or about 27-cents per sheet.

The best papers that I have found so far are the Pictorico Photo Gallery Glossy and the Red River Ultra Pro Gloss (68 lbs) papers for gloss. These two are equal too, maybe just a bit better than the Canon Pro paper. I have had good results with Pictorico Premium Photo Glossy also, this is more of a semi-gloss. For matte papers, I have liked the Epson Enhanced Matte and the Red River 65 lb Premium Matte and the 60 lb Polar Matte. Red River has a few different sample packs, you might want to try them and see what paper you like.

The link are here for Red River and Pictorico:

Just to let you know, I have found www.buy.com had the best for Canon inks.

Hope this helps
Bill

I have had very good results with Office Depot brand glossy and satin. You can often find this on sale with a buy-one-get-one free or buy-two-get-one free. Red River papers are also excellent but a bit more costly. Unfortunately, the OD paper is 8 1/2 X 11 max size so for large prints, go with the Red River.

I mostly use Canon Photo Paper Pro but I also like the Konica QP Photo Glossy and Epson Double-weight Matte paper too.
