  • What paper do you use?

    What paper do you use for printing? I was using photo paper and sometimes when I put it in a book it gets marks on looking like it is wet.

    Hello Tina, So nice of you to join us!! I personally like to use Matte photo paper. The glossy sometimes sticks to the protector, but I am sure you will get lots of other ideas.

      I use both depending on the look I want. But the glossy does tend to stick like Crops says.

        It depends on the page layout, I use a lot of matt photo paper, but sometimes the layout will look better in gloss or semi gloss. If I use gloss I usually leave them a day before putting them in a protector (this helps to prevent sticking)

          I use both but like gloss but you do have to let it dry a day or 2 before putting tn the protectors. or it will stick it needs a longer dry time than mat.
          I like mat for 12x12 just looks nice oh and i have not found it in gloss ha ha

              Dry Time

              I use a premium glossy for most of my printing.

              I let the page dry for about 1/2 hour then I place a sheet of plain printer paper on it. I usually print several at a sitting so after the initial dry time, I stack them photo, plain paper, photo and so on.

              I then leave the stack for a good 36 hours before placing in protectors. I have had no trouble with sticking since doing it this way.

              Hope this helps.

                Very Good idea MomsCorner!! I will have to give that a try someday. I would like to use glossy sometimes, heck, its cheaper too. But I will wait till it goes on sale.
                Angel... what kind do you use... the brazil paper?? I will have to try that too, never even thought about that.

                  buy your photo paper at Sams club. I have used it for several years now and don't have trouble when I wait a day or two before putting it in the sheet protectors. I use a regular 3 ring binder, and I use the sheet protectors. have for years. but it sure works great with SBM.

                      I have some canvas paper too. I only use it for special things. Not all the time. I used it for a fall picture and it came out looking like a painting.

                          girls, one thing to seriously consider when you are printing at home is how the prints will stand up over time. To me, it's a total waste of ink and paper to print at home only to have the prints fade in a few years (and in the case of some printers and inks, a few MONTHS).

                            That is the reason why I do not print them.I get them done through scrapbook max as a picture layout so I will have these when I open a album in years to come.I never did trust printing them.Maybe somedaythey improve them but until then I will use the one here.By the way they do an excellent job.
