Here ya go John: http://shop.inkjetmall.com/Pictorico-Ultra-Premium-OHP-film-8-5x11.html <http://shop.inkjetmall.com/Pictorico-Ultra-Premium-OHP-film-8-5x11.html>

I know there are claims to the contrary, but from my experience none of the alternatives can carry the link load that Pictorico Ultra does, including Fixxons which I have just tested. Fixxons is probably the second best choice though. I've had quality control issues with Arista and InkPress, which negate the lower cost.
