Default Sourcing Paper

Hi, i am new here and i am not sure wether this post is in the correct forum, so please forgive me.

I need some help on finding some appropriate paper for something i am currently working on.

I have a Canon i9950 A3+ printer and i need some a3 paper that i can print on both sides. This would be either matte or semi gloss (satin) and around 200gsm ish. It would be for high quality photos and text.

Canon themselves dont make what i am looking for so i am looking elsewere.

I have tried Hp Supirior Paper Glossy (brochure flyer paper) 180gsm (C6821A) but the quality is not there. I think its putting too much ink down, but i cant seem to find a setting that my printer likes.

Does anybody have any experience with such a paper i am looking for, or even paper that they have tried in a4 but you know the manufacturer does an a3 version of.

I am having really difficulty finding double sided paper, i didnt think it would be a problem. I cant be the only person in the world that wants to print on 2 sides with photos and text to make a publication.

I really appreciate your time and thoughts on this subject.

Take care, G_N
