I have always used photograhic paper. semi gloss /matt or gloss and they come out beautifully. Set the printer to Photo paper and it automatically prints at BEST setting.
I have never bought the top price brand paper ..just the generic brand and have had no problems..In fact many prople said to me " Boy! you must have a good printer, they look such good quality photos" - But I just have the very basic start of the price range Hewlett Packard printer.
Not all printers can printer "borderless" (or at all sizes). Take a look at your printer manual to see. If it is supported, it's usually a simple matter of selecting a checkbox in the printer settings. Most printers require that you use "premium" paper in order to print borderless. Scrapbook MAX! is totally up to the job, but can only go as far as the hardware you have allows it!
Scrapbook MAX! 2.0 is here!. It's simply better digital scrapbooking software!
