Default US size paper in the UK

I've been asked whether I know of a UK source for 8..5 x 11 (US Letter) paper for use in an inkjet. Any ideas?

And come to think of it, I'd like to find a ream or two of A4 here in the US.

Well, lord luvva google ...

Staples has it in the US and have a look here:

http://www.amazon.co.uk/exec/obidos/...698969-0671118

That seems to be mostly photo and greeting card papers and such, but go back up the bread crumb trail a bit and maybe there's ordinary paper as well?

Steve:

I've still got some very good A4 paper made in the USA, and I'm sure US sizes are available here (UK), but possibly not sold as 'letter', but as 'quarto'. I think foolscap is still available too. Richard should try Staples or Viking.

Good: but you might find a cheaper source, for Data Copy A4 appears to sell at half the price of the Quarto. Of course, that's the way it goes, and I expect it's the other way round in the USA.
