I have been receiving lots of questions from friends and followers on my blog lately so I thought I do a little series of posts to answer some of them.
I have decided to start with
"What paper do you use for printing?"
Backing Papers: I print all of my backing papers on a coated paper. I use 170G Matt Coated Inkjet Photo Quality Paper from Photo Paper Direct
Decoupage and Toppers: I often use the same paper to print decoupage images - you do need to be careful when cutting out though because as the paper is coated you can scratch the surface with your scissors.
I also use satin photo paper when I would like to achieve a glossy result. I use A4 Satin Photo Paper Premium 200g also from Photo Paper Direct.
You might think that both of these are rather expensive but they are always on offer. I also find that if you place an order and then don't order for a while you will receive additional offers via email - I have even managed to buy one pack and get three packs free, so I bulk buy and then wait for another good offer.
Digital Images: I use Joanna Sheen's Elegance Satin card stock when I am going to colour with Alcohol Markers.
