Where can i get quality photo paper at a cheap price?
Just got a new i9100. What type of paper do you guys recommend for photo printing?
I'm looking to get this Ilford sampler pack from bhphoto: http://www.bhphotovideo.com/bnh/controller/home?O=productlist&A=details&Q=&sku=334964&is=REG
Or should i stay with Canon Photo Pro paper?

I don't have any experience with Canon printers but I can tell you that Ilford papers in general offer very good quality at a reasonable price. I have used both the Classic and Smooth Pearl and Gloss papers with Epson printers (1280 and 2200 specifically).
Bear in mind that the Smooth papers are optimized for pigment inks and the Classic papers for dye inks. The Smooth papers can be used on ink papers also but they will fade faster than the Classics. Do not use the Classic papers with pigment inks as the ink will sit on the surface and smear or streak during printing.

I have printed exrensively with the Canon S9000 and found that even after experimenting with the papers on the market I kept coming back to the canon "photopaper pro" which produced excellent results every time. I found I had to "fiddle" too much with colour settings for none canon papers.
This might just be me, but my experience says stay with canon photo paper pro - at least until you know how good the printer you have is, and it is good, then experiment when you can compare output
You don't take a photograph. You ask, quietly, to borrow it.
