HIGH Quality A4 or Legal Paper?

Ok, simple question.....is there anyplace online (or in store) that offers a good quality A4 or Legal sized paper? I want to be able to use some paper to print out covers......and the best I can find at Staples/Office Max/Office Depot is 24 lb. legal sized copy paper....Id like something a step up for printing. Thanks!

Go with real photo paper. "Photo quality" paper is just regular paper with a higher brightness. Photo paper costs more, but it's 1000x better for printing covers. For larger covers you can buy some 11 x 17" B (Ledger) or 13 x 19" Super A3/Super B glossy photo paper and cut your own 8.5 x 14" sheets. Epson, HP, Canon and Kodak all make them. It's a little pricey, but about the only option if you insist on high standards for your printing.

Thanks.....that what you do? Where do you get them......online, or B&M? I looked in Staples and Office Max, and their supply of any paper larger than 8.5x11 was rather paltry.

I get mine at CompUSA. Btw, the Super A3/Super B is more economical since you can cut two 8.5 x 14" pieces from each sheet.

Actually with 13x19 paper you'll end up with two 8.5 x 13" pieces. Not quite legal size, but big enough for any cover job you need.
