I thank all who responded and now have a better idea of the prices for roll vs sheet. I'll always check.

From what some of you said, cutting what I need from 17" wide roll paper doesn't appear to be associated with any major problems. I was concerned about the possibility of paper curling as it feeds into the printer.

Curl is definately a problem, which is one of the reasons why cutting from sheets is a lot nicer. Roll paper is coated on the outside. You need to decurl at least the leading edge for printers without suction feed. And since it will have to be decurled anyhow, there is something to be said for decurling the whole thing before printing.
