Paper Quality Does Make The Difference!
You can print Paper Minis™ projects on plain paper. Although, if
quality is important to you, it is advised you use
high-resolution inkjet paper. I have advised folks to go to
the website of the manufacturer of your printer
and check to see if the manufacturer sells paper
specific to their/your printer. If not they may
recommend a paper line.
Paper that will give you great color and archival
quality will be 'clay coated', unlike office paper.
Some printer manufacturers and some paper vendors
will have a sampler to purchase. This is a great way
to experiment with your printer. When printing the small scales, avoid thick paper such as cover
stock weight or photo stock weight because of their lack of flexibility
for small-scale folding. Use gloss sparingly because the the
finish tends to crack when folded. It's especially
apparent on darker colors. For your information, Paper
Minis™ printies have been formatted
for maximum clarity and resolution so you can get the best
print on your high-resolution inkjet printer.
have used Epson printers for years because I like
the color, archival quality and water resistance
they offer, but I'm sure other printers offer
similar benefits. Your printer is probably good
enough for printies, you just need to experiment
with the best settings.
