I bought some photo paper from lidl not long ago, United Office I think the make. It's a bargain, 50 sheets, gloss A4 280gsm for 4 quid if I remember it right. I tried a search to see if I can buy more, but nothing came up. If anyone knows where I can buy it, please let me know.

I bought 50 sheets almost the very same from PPD, and paid 20 quid, and the image won't print dead centre because the size is a fraction wider. Not happy today, I bought a hundred sheets of A3 also, I bet I have the same problem.

A few good deals on certain types of glossy photo paper in Poundland. Usually something like 12 sheets for £1

Wilkinson's is good for that paper too. And dead cheap We got a whole block of it for under £2.

Raisin cookies are why I have trust issues.

Thanks, I'll look out for places like that. We have a 99p store which sells photo paper, but never bothered trying that. Nearest Wilkinsons is about 5 miles from here.

Just compared the A3 printed image to the A4 printed image, on the paper from PPD. The A3 is darker than the A4, which is a pain. Hopefully, I'll get to carry on buying Jessops paper if they are saved, as mentioned on another thread. Never had any problems with their papers.

I can supply 100 x A4 for £15 if anyone is interested. Use it myself, excellent quality. Non branded from Germany, think its made for some of the bigger companies to brand their own.
