While I don't what cheap paper you're refering too, Costco has Epson 100 8x10 heavy weight photopaper for $19.99, and Kodak for $24.99, with Kodak being the whiter and of heavier stock... and I believe theses pricing are quite reasonable. BTW they also carry cheap Xerox type copy paper ...

15$ at sams. Thanks for the reply.

Aren't you better off with the 8x10's and arrange, at least two to a sheet? It's a little bit cheaper but you'll need a trimmer...

I would be better off. But I have used some of the paper and can't take it back.
Don't get me wrong ,the prints are o.k.,
but they have two sets of small multiple
lines going down the length of the print.
The canon paper has no lines when using
the same settings. thanks

I know this isn't an answer to your question but I've heard that the Canon "S" series printers like Office Depot Premium Glossy paper, Epson Glossy Photo paper (not premium), and the Epson Heavyweight Matte that NHL mentioned above.

MK thanks for the tip on office depot. I looked at the cheap paper again,and found it to be .0015 in. thinner than the cannon paper.(measured with micrometer)
Guess I will start measuring paper before
buying.

Default It's the paper, NOT the printer!

Royal Brite is the problem, IMHO. I bought a pack of their premium glossy heavyweight 8 1/2 x 11 photo paper, printed one sheet, and returned it for a credit. The prints were soft and fuzzy. I balked at the price of the Kodak High gloss, which was marked at about twice the price, but when I got to the cash register, it scanned for the same as the Royal Brite. I have been completely satisfied with the Kodak paper. It was 75 sheets for $19.98 at Sam's, which is a GREAT price for that paper. I'd recommend trying other brands of paper if I were you!
