                  no, it's a personal choice though. Get both and try them at home. I personally like the cardstock better.The photo paper (with my printer) comes out too dark and sometimes splotchy. The colors just don't seem to come out the same as they do on the cardstock. But there are a lot of members on here that use photopaper. My sister in law uses photo paper and hers come out nice - so it's a personal choice and also depends on your printer. Costco and Walmart can do them as well but I haven't tried that route yet. I've been printing on 8x10 cardstock and trim the edges.
                  Good luck

                      Hello ksd_24_f
                      just read your reply to Genny. I had not thought of using card stock instead of photopaper. On occasion what I see on the screen is not what is printing. For most times I am happy with my results, but it is good to have an option. Thank you for the tip

                        that's exactly what was happening to me too Huia. The LO's looked fantastic on screen, but dark and colors were not right once printed. Since I switched over to cardstock, they come out beautifully. And once you put them into the shiny see through folder of your album, it looks just like it was printed on photo paper.
                        Good luck.
