Has anybody got any ideas, for some time I have purchased blank ring 22 pages from Dauwalders and printed successfully my own pages on an Epsom Photo 1400 printer using Epsom inks. The paper has changed and the quality of print on this new paper is very poor (though still very good on the old paper) It has been suggested that I use a different ink cartridge (at 70+ for a set!!)
So can anybody suggest an alternative source for paper or recommend a reasonably priced priced printer that will cope with the odd size of ring 22 pages.
Thanks Dave

Have you tried speaking to Duwalders Dave, they may be sending you a different paper by mistake? At worst they may be interested in your comments to try and get the paper improved by the printer.

First port of call was Dauwalders and despite the sending of the two different printed pages showing the loss of quality the answer was that the old paper is too expensive and I should look at using different ink cartridges.

Oh right - in other words they aren't that concerned about losing your custom. Crying or Very sad
Seems to be a sign of the times, unfortunately.
Afraid I can't help you with your original quest.
It is difficult to suggest an alternate printer unless one is actually already printing that type of paper. Hopefully, one of the other members is doing just that and will be able to help.

Hi,

one option might be to take the good stock along to a local print business and see if they can source/provide something suitable. I know of other collectors who have taken this route and then bought in bulk as it will last them years. Probably cheaper than buying from a typical dealer too.

I use an A4 card when writing up, so not an issue for me per se.
