Once many years ago I had the chance to buy some 11x17 paper at Staples/Office Depot on clearance and I snatched it up at the time then cut it down to fit my 8.5x11 printer. Now I have a printer that can handle that size but am almost out of the large paper.

Staples has their brand of 11x17 photo paper but my past experiences with their paper leaves little to be desired and apparently they don't sell any other brands that big (or at least not in store).

So I did some looking online and came across roll paper. Could I cut this to fit whatever dimension I need then print on it since my printer can't do rolls?

If not, where is a good place to buy photo paper without shelling out too much money.

Note: For my 8x10 prints I use HP Advanced Photo Paper and I love it. Good and cheap.

It's just so much easier to buy the paper your manufacturer recommends, I wouldn't try to cut down a roll - toooo much work.

I think the epson 4800 has an auto-cutter, though. The paper is what makes the print, and the ink, not the printer.
Satin is a great type of paper, and pretty cheap too.
Luster is another great type of paper I'm a big fan of..and also reasonably priced.
Canvas is another great option I use.

Try this company for a lot of fine art papers of various types and sizes and formats

Is this for the Pro9000? If so, you probably want 13x19, not 11x17. The HP advanced comes in 13x19 if that has been working well for you. Get it at Amazon

Otherwise, Adorama, BHphoto and Red River have huge paper selections in nearly every size.

I use a Canon printer as well and HP advanced is my favorite glossy and Ilford Premium Pearl is my favorite "luster" or semi-gloss paper.

tkbslc, Yes it is for the Pro9000. I'm only printing 11x14's so the 11x17 does the job. Why would I want 13x19?

Because you CAN? :)

I just assumed you wanted to print as big as you can. 11x17 and 11x14 is a bit harder to find and 13x19 lets you print lots of different combinations and sizes.

RedRiver has 11x17 and 11x14 size papers, so that might be a good choice for you.
