    PhotoPaper

    Does anyone know a good place to buy inkjet photo paper from.
    I need a mix of matt and glossy in both A3 and A4.

    The printers I need them for are an HP PHOTOSMART 2575 and an EPSON STYLUS PHOTO R1800. Is it best to use HP paper for HP printers or is that just a ploy from the companies to make you buy more of their stuff!

    They are going to be used by the art and media department. We are going to start a new Digital Photography A-Level from September so they want to get their stocks up. I have a budget of £300 to get as much as possible.

    Ask the nice people at Thomas Computer Supplies (tel: 01772 699400) to give you a quote and some advice... they are very nice to schools

    Re: PhotoPaper

    Worth taking a look over on the following forums too:

    www.nifty-stuff.com (more a Canon bias but some HP users)
    www.stevesforums.com (look for printers forums - good advice available from a variety of folks).

    As a rule though I've heard a couple of minor tips:
    - Kodak papers are actually not that great
    - the rule of manufacturers own (ie: HP paper to HP printer) is a good rule of thumb as they will have been forumlated together but so long as you have the colour profiles for paper, ink and printer you should be fine.

    It's a bit of a learning curve though so I'd ask/look for some samples if I were you..

    I ended up getting some really good deals from Photo Paper Direct http://www.photopaperdirect.com/
    THe only problem is I need to send a cheque to pay and there won't be any SMT to sign it!
