What sort of printer can I use?

Many of our customers are doing their own printing using a laser or inkjet printer at home or work. It is advisable to know what sort of printer you will be using before coming to the shop or ordering online as some papers are only suitable for one type of printer.

An inkjet printer uses small ink cartridges and generally requires an absorbent surface for the ink. Papers with a pearl or metallic finish, and translucent papers, often don't work well in an inkjet because of the non-absorbent finish on the paper. The ink may take a long time to dry and may "bleed" or "feather", and may not produce a sharp image.

A laser printer uses “toner” as the “ink” which is fused to the paper by heat, and is therefore recommended for use on metallic, pearl and translucent papers.

Although photocopiers use a similar method to laser printers, they often use a different heat and speed, and will not necessarily produce the same results as a laser printer.

We have included a recommended printer type for all the Printable Papers we stock. If you wish to use a different type of printer than that recommended, we strongly advise you to test the paper first as we cannot be responsible for any resulting damage to the printer or paper.

Paper Weight: This is the term used to describe the thickness of the paper. Paper or “text” weight ranges from 80gsm to 125gsm. Card or “cover” weight ranges from 200gsm to 330gsm. Most printers for home use have a maximum recommended paper weight for printing onto of around 160gsm, which is midway between paper and card weight. With the exception of our “Mid-weight” card, we don’t recommend printing on card weight if you are using a home printer. Information on the weight of all our paper and card is included in the description of the item.

Professional Printing Services: a professional printer can usually print on a variety of surfaces and weights, and can sometimes print with metallic and/or raised inks. If you intend using a professional printer it is a good idea to check with them first about what they can and cannot print on, and their preferred size.
