Who are you trying to convince, yourself or the list? I for one don't care. I will spend whatever it takes to give my clients the best product I can. If it costs $2.00 a sheet I'll spend the $2.00. Buy the amount of paper you can afford. Make your prints and sell them. Take the profits and buy more paper and make more prints. The larger the profit you make the greater the amount of paper you can purchase. Don't be so afraid to charge what your work is worth.
