The 2 big issues here are print quality and longevity (in one >order >or the other). Well I for one am interested in saving money. I tried the cheap OEM ink from Frys (I sorry I don't remeber the name) and the color was off, the prints looked faded and the black wasn't all it's supposed to be. Considering that it was only marginally less expensive I didn't think it much of a bargin. But I have to admit that was about 6 months ago and I haven't tried any recently. I also freely admit to paying too much for some of the heavier papers, in my rational mind I *know* that once it's framed you can't tell, but I still love the feel of the paper in my hand. It seems to have more texture, but that's probebly my imagination. On the whole I do consider cost one of the factored to be balanced. For instance I have a sample of "Etching Board Naterual White 310" that I *loved*. That is I loved it till I found out it was $7 a sheet! (still maybe for my birthday ;-) But I do understand, and somewhat agree. -vicki Vicki Ralls =========================================================== Xaos Gallery If Order is Life, then Xaos is Art http://members.home.net/johnralls/chaos.html =========================================================== - Turn off HTML mail features.
