    Title says it all. I'm after some A4 paper for my printer and thought I'd ask here where the best place to get it cheap is.

    Thanks.

    Just for general printing or photo printing?

    Does it need to be good quality or just something to have lieing around?

    Just general printing.

    Doesn't have to be brilliant. I will mainly use it to print off coach tickets etc.

    Thanks for the tip.

    I keep finding cheap lots for £2 or £3 but when I go to the checkout, the delivery charge is about £6 extra! Grrr.

    I buy from Makro or Costco if I am there. About the same price as Asda cheap stuff at Makro, but Costco is better paper for the same price (Xerox stuff)

    Xerox is decent and not too expensive.

    You guys do realise that most of these places are competitors and therefore not to be mentioned.

    T*sco do a 90gsm for about a fiver, 500 sheets. It was a bargain for a while at under 4 quid until they cottoned on I was staggering out with three or four reams at a time. before then it was 100gsm for the same price (their 'finest') and that was good, thick, bright white paper. Their red and white stuff will do if you after the cheapest, as will Asd* green and white no name stuff, which probably doubles as loo roll. You know, the old British rail stuff that left a big smeared mess up your back.
