  ha..no not to many 0's..We purchase about 100 box's/year. I think there are 
100 sheets /box?? In addition to that we buy other items..like card stock and 
canvass..sometimes single sheets and sometimes on roll.

  We don't paint on the paper...Diane will paint on a canvass. We don't sell 
our originals... The ones we do sell will go for about $1500 ea. We have some 
this year we are going to sell off. Got to many of them accumulating..running 
out of wall space..ha!
  we make prints of them and sell those. We do all our own printing. Every step 
of the way is done by us. 100% Alaskan made and by an Alaskan at that.. As 
Diane often tells our customers..Nothing made in China on this table. The 
challenge comes in getting the 500th print to look precisely like the 1st 
print. We don't tweak the prints in anyway..the print looks precisely like the 
original and are often mistaken for photographs..so we have an original sitting 
right next to it's print for the customer to see. It involves a lot of work and 
often gets complicated and takes a very keen eye.
  As you can see by my bragging and going on and on about Diane that I am very 
proud of her..:-)Aren't you glad you asked?? HA!

  Hey Trapper,    Didn't you put too many 0's on the $10 worth of paper?    I 
just have to ask, What do you do with all that paper?   I know you do 
"paintings" but I did not know you would do a painting on photo paper.

    I would buy it form whoever has the best price...We get ours over at 
Costco. We buy about $1000 worth at a time..

    I don't know that I would say Hp is a leader in anything...( personal 
opinion ) We found that the surface texture of the HP was such that it did not 
give us the quality of the Epson paper.  Keep in mind that we are extremely 
fussy and probably a lot more critical than you will need to be...Having said 
that if you can't locate the Epson then go with the HP..

    Well there we go again.   I assumed that HP was the leader in photos, 
software, hardware and paper;  but I guess not.    Should I buy the paper from 
Office Depot or should I order it online from Epson?
