Epson UK states something like GBP 37 (USD 63) for a 100 sheets pack of
13x19" Epson Photo Quality Inkjet Paper (probably prices are better in the
US market). The one I use costs USD 28.34 per "200 sheets" pack of 13x19"
(that makes about 22%, ~ 1/5th of Epson's price)... When you finish your
stock of Epson paper you may consider the translucent bond, I think it
would be cheaper than Epson paper even with the added shipment (request
USPS shipment, not pricey courrier service!) + customs duty... The paper
prints sharp, w/o any texture. (Did you see my 2nd tricolor gum print?)
Plus, because it's so thin and light, comparatively it occupies less space
/ mass in your paper closed.
