I was just wondering whats the best type of paper for these printers in terms of quality for value. should i only stick to canon paper? this is regarding your typical matte, gloss, luster, etc

How about a sample pack from Red River? They're a pretty reputable paper company, and the sample pack lets you choose which of their products you like best.

I agree, their paper is very good, and they offer many different types. Price is very good. They also have profiles for printers.

Get the sample pack, it contains two of each of about a dozen different types. I made a b&w and color print on each style and then decided on the one I preferred.

I have the Canon printer (PRO 9000 mkII) and have used the better Canon papers as well as a package of Ilford. I find that the RR is just as good and I have not found any issues with them. I did not try any Epson papers.

I told a friend (who is a professional photographer) about RR and he looked into it and switched to it.

I suggest getting the sampler, or even a small box of 4x6 or 5x7 and testing it out. Your best bet is the sampler because it will provide a large range of different papers.
