I was wondering if anyone had a good CHEAP source for overhead transparancies that you can put in your printer.  I have an old-school overhead projector available, and I'd like to be able to prepare transparencies for my classes--not just write on the acetate as I go.  However, the blank transparencies look sort of expensive.  Any tips?

I order a box every couple of years from Quill. They have a website and are very reasonable.

We order them by the box, I think there are 50 to a box...These are ordered through our school office, but probably come from somewhere like Office Depot and would have to be cheap, since there's no money these days!!  If you'd like, I'll check on them for you Monday...They go through our copiers and our printers...

Do you use an inkjet or a laser?  I recently got a SmartBoard for my class so I have some I don't need.  Send me a mailing address and I will send them to you.
