    I am in need of some large A2 glossy paper, and I have no clue whatsoever as to where to find it!

    Does anyone know where I could snag some in Houston?
    Is there a cheap and reputable dealer on the internet that I could buy 2 or 3 sheets from?

    I don't need 100 sheets, like some places are trying to sell me. I'm actually just cutting it in half and printing a panoramic picture on it.

    any ideas?

    Thanks! :D

    Too bad you're cutting it lengthwise, otherwise half of an A2 sheet is A3 which is probably easier to find. ;)

    EDIT: Have you considered looking for some kind of "banner" paper?

    KT, go to a place that does colour photocopying, or a quick-print shop. They'll have every kind of paper you could imagine, and you can sweet talk them into selling you -- hell, giving you -- a couple of sheets.

    Art supply shops often have a lot of A2 (and larger) sheets sold singly. I'm not sure they'd have glossy stuff, but it's definitely worth a look.

    pretty please??

    Awesome! I think I know where some art supply stores are.. I can always ask my visual artist friends! (Finally, they're good for something! ;))

    Balamw, I looked at banner paper, but it's all 200 foot length, and $$$$$$. Cutting A2 is what I need, I think. I'll bug the guy at Texas art supply about it. :D
