I just checked prices on Amazon.

21" x 225 feet - 12 rolls - less than $40.

Holy Cow! What a savings!

Amazon - medical exam paper

compare with Nancy's Notions - 21" x 77 feet - 1 roll $8.99 eta: correction - katlew03 pointed out that it's 77 yards - not feet
Nancy's Notions Pattern Tracing Paper

Does the medical exam paper work well?

I've used the paper for years. I would get some too but I just don't know what I would do with 12 rolls!

Do you know somebody ... or somebody that knows somebody.. heh heh... that is a nurse or works in a doctor's office, etc?

I'm an esthetician and I need just a little of that exam paper once in a while... so I mooched a roll through one of my clients - she just threw $5 at the doc for the favor.

I wouldn't want 12 rolls of it around.

When you've got a lot of rolls, it's amazing how liberating it is. You're not scrimping on tracing and trying out variations on fit and details. Last year I bought 12 rolls with a friend, donated four to another friend who couldn't afford them and split the rest. I'm through one roll and half of another already.

Nancy's Notions is not 77 feet, it is 77 yards. I got it for 2/$14 a few months ago. Amazon is a better deal and I just ordered, but it is the same size roll for both.

Forgot to say that my order went through with free shipping, probably because it was over $25 or something.

Debbie - that's a good point. I'm almost to the end of my roll and I keep holding back.
