Having just purchased the Canon S900 printer, I'm looking for an inexpensive source for Canon paper or a top-notch substitute.
Thus far, I have happily used the 4x6 Photo Paper Pro (borderless) and the 8 1/2x11 Photo Paper Pro (not borderless).
Both papers do a good job but are expensive. Canon says that both papers give about 25-yr-life for prints. The 8 1/2 Pro does not seem to be available in borderless.
Any experience with other papers on the Canon?
Thanks in advance for any advice.

The cheapest source in the US I found has been InkJetGoodies
I prefer 13x19 since the number of images/price ratio is larger. I have tried Ilford and I must I like it - Small difference in Gamut but better priced.
I'm not sure if we are going to get 25 years out of these prints... I was reading a longevity test and it was not very encoreging... Altough you have to take everything with a gran of salt I guess. The tests are found here http://www.livick.com/method/inkjet/pg1.htm
If you want archival - Epson 2200 wins that battle... but I still like the output of the S9000 - to me, it's much nicer.
Now, I have used the 8 1/2x11 and I'm pettry sure it is bordeless, so you might want to double check.
I asked my favorite online store in Canada and they carry A3+ PR-101 at $32 Canadian the 10 pack. It's not listed on their web, I called and that is the cheapest price I have found so far. This site is http://www.cameracanada.com
