I want to print out some project life cards and other digital elements. I am unsure of what kind of paper to use. What do you recommend? What do you use?

Thanks for the help,
Candie

There is some matte photo paper by Canon or some double-sided matte photo paper by staples that I really like. It's not what you think of as photo paper, it's more like a really nice quality cardstock. But it prints a beautiful hybrid item.

Thanks Amy. Do you think I can use these papers in an HP laser printer?

I bought some Epson Matte Presentation paper a few weeks ago and I love how the cards turned out. I have older an HP inkjet printer.

I second the vote for the Epson Matte Presentation Paper. I just bought a pack a couple of weeks ago for printing out journal cards for PL. I was quite impressed with how crisp and clean the images are. The paper is a bit more expensive, but I am loving the results.
