Thread: Photo paper for ink/bubble jet printing

    Default Photo paper for ink/bubble jet printing

    Hi all,
    Does anyone know a good place to get the best selection of photo paper? I can't seem to find semi-gloss A4, >200g/m2 ones these days. I'm also interested in getting those paper with textures.

    I used to use the ones from Konica which had a 'Satin' finishing. Really nice. These days I can't seem to find it anywhere. I 've checked in most shops in Sim Lim already.

    I usually use these 2 papers:
    - ilford Double Sided Matt
    - Pictorico

    I bought the Pictorico in Japan, extremely expensive paper I can't barely afford a single printing mistake cos that's almost like $2 down the drain if I do!!! But I rarely print in gloss, phew....

    The Ilford I have is nice and thick since its meant for double-sided printing. Since I rarely print photos these days except really nice ones, I'd usually print it on one side. The colour reproduction is quite good and doesn't bleed.

    There's a selection at Challenger Funan.

    Chamoxa Funan used to stock them but I don't think they sell them anymore.

    There's a particular shop near the escalator at Sim Lim, level 4 or 5 I think, that sells ink n paper.

    suggest moving thread to "general, reviews, tech talk".
