Best source for paper????

I'm looking to purchase some inkjet paper. I would like some basic and affordable paper that I can use more regularly and some higher end paper for special projects. I'd like both to be large format.

For standard paper, Finch has a 500/ream of 32lbs 11x17 for $30, which should be nicer than standard Staples multiuse or something, I think. HOWEVER, I was thinking it might be better to go with a nicer paper - Red River has some matte papers that might be good for general use and not too expensive. And with those I can get an even larger format.

For the higher end paper, I want something matte or similar. With this I'm also not looking for the highest end stuff, just something with weight and easy to get nice prints on.

Can you recommend some things you like? Should I get a variety pack and try things out? Which one?

Oh, my printer is an Epson 3800.

Thanks for any advice!
