Economy Paper

If you have a branch of Lidl close by keep an eye out for their United Office photo paper. It's labelled Premium Inkjet A4 Photo Paper - 280 gm glossy.

I don't know about longevity, but it is very glossy, instant dry, and at 5 for 100 sheets of 4 x 6 or 50 sheets of A4 it is perfect for printing proofs of your work.

In fact I am carrying out some fade tests on it using Canon inks, and some compatible ink,to see how it lasts because I am really impressed by the resulting prints.

Re: Economy Paper

Unfortunately our nearest Lidl is about 20 minutes drive away, so too far for regular shopping, but I may make a special journey just to check this out. I'll certainly be interested to find out how you get on.
