I just ordered an Epson wide format printer and am so excited about FINALLY having a printer that I can use 12x12 paper with! I think that I will probably use it mostly for printing my journalling anywhere on the page but I also want to use it for print and cuts with my Cameo. I've done this a few times with the HP printer that I'm replacing but the results haven't been great. In fact, I really haven't print many photos with my HP printer so I'm actually looking forward to being able to use this new one every now again for photo printing. I prefer the look of matt photos when I sent them to be printed online - but good matt paper is tough to find. So now I'm wondering what type of paper you Epson owners use with your printers to get the best quality prints and a reasonable price!

I don't have 12x12 or an Epson so I use HP brochure paper. The presentation paper works too but it isn't quite as heavy. My printables look great!

I have heard that Epson presentation paper works best with Epson printers - not sure if it comes in 12x12.

For photos, I use Epson UltraPremium Lustre Photo Paper, which I buy eitherthrough amazon, epson or Atlex dot com, depending on price.

For journaling or print and cut kinds of things, I use Epson Ultra Premium Matte Presentation paper, which you can buy at the same places I listed above.

Enjoy your new printer!

Shoot! I wish I had seen this earlier. I actually saw this tonight when I was out and debating buying it... but I decided to wait until I my printer is delivered... which looks like it will be tomorrow! Guess I'll have to make another trip out tomorrow night to pick some up.

I just did a couple of print and cuts with some Staples lustre photo paper that I have... It's ok but too glossy for my liking for an embellishment.

I usually use Epson Matte Luster photo paper for pictures because that is what is recommended. I have use the ultra premium satin kodak paper and it works fine (if I run out of the other). I have printed a lot of journaling on 12 x 12 papers. I usually use bazzill and it works great.
Enjoy your new printer.

I love the presentation paper..I have actually printed photos on this and always get tons of compliments. I love that it is definitely fingerprint resistant.

I was going to do this for journalling... but I didn't think that it would be a good option for "print and cuts" because the cardstock would absorb too much ink and make it look flat... No?

I'm off to pick up some Epson Presentation paper today!

Cardstock soaks up the ink. I have taken a few hybrid classes at Jessica Sprague and Epson Matte Premium Presentation is recommended. I have tried a couple different kinds and it is indeed the best quality.

So my printer arrived on Wednesday, I picked up some Epson Presentation Paper yesterday... but I haven't had time to play hopefully sometime this long weekend (Family Day for us her in Ontario)... although that doesn't look promising given all the tasks I have to do this weekend... fingers crossed!
