be aware that with some Canon Pixma printers (like my new 4200) canon says not use any media heavier than 105gsm unless it is canon paper. Most photo-quality paper is way above 105gsm. canon say the use of non-canon thick photo paper may jam in the printer or even damage it. Could be just a ploy to make sure you only buy canon paper but since my printer's new I'm taking no chances. As it happens, I regard Canon PR-101 paper as being superior to the others anyway.

Amazon . . . yup, I get my Canon paper for about 1/2 price and free super saver shipping. The pricing fluctuates; so watch it and you'll save biiiiiig time. Same deal with the Canon OEM inks; I pay from 1/3 to 1/2 the retail price.

Repeat: the prices fluctuate, so monitor them and pounce when the price is right. Stock up a bit.

No kidding...Amazon rocks! I just picked up 6-20 packs of their 8.5x11" Photo Paper Plus for $7.95 a pack! That's cheaper than most of the sub's everybody is talking about.
