I have just about had enough of Fuji paper, it is too thin and the gloss surface seems to mark very easily when it is wet. The only things going for it are it's cost per box and the fact you can still get it in cut sizes.
I have been looking at Kodak rolls of RA4 paper which will work out cheaper per print/sheet than Fiji and is thicker based too. I will need to make a dispenser which will adjoin my 16" guillotine to cut the size I want. I have a basic design mapped out, (Taking 12" or 16" width paper) but what material to use is holding me up before I start. Basically it will have to be in wood or wood based, but would any residual odour from the wood (Pine or other softwood) cause any long term problems with storage of the paper. I could of course use plastic laminated wood but that would make it too heavy and awkward, especially if it was the 16" size.
Metal fabrication is out of the question and black acrylic sheeting I feel would be too costly and difficult to join at the edges get it completely light tight.
Any thoughts please
