Default Canon Glossy Photo Paper Alternatives for Canon i850??

Have a Canon i850 and am getting great prints using Canon Photo Paper Plus Glossy and Canon Photo Paper Pro ( very high gloss).

I have also tried Kodak Premium Photo Paper Glossy but it looks blotchy especially in the darker area's. Also smudges easily.

Kodak Soft Gloss Photo Paper seems to go on smooth like the Canon's and is very smudge proof but does not have the vibrant color's like the Canon paper.

I'm looking for Gloss Photo Paper that can match the Image Quality and Color Fastness of the Canon Glossy papers but at a better price.

Any suggestions will be greatly appreciated.

Trey Red River paper company


They have a sample pack you can order. I believe it contains 30 different types of paper.

I have heard from www.dpreviews.com that Office Depot Glossy photo paper is second best to Canon PPP

I also have the Cannon I850 and have gotten exellent results with the Kodak paper by telling the printer I was using the Cannon Photo Pro paper. I did get the blotchy-ness in the dark areas when I selected different paper types. Seems like the printer sprays out too much ink for some paper types.

for my i850 I use photo paper from http://pictorico.com/. the premium photo glossy and the photo gallery photo paper are both good choices.
