Polkadoodles 160gsm supersmooth, brilliant white paper/card.
(please note this product ix expensive to ship outside the UK).
Time and time again Nikky is asked at shows which card she uses due to the supreme smoothness and quality of print when she prints from our CD's. So here it is, in a 50 sheet pack.
There are others on the market which are very similar but in Nikky's opinion this is superior and the best available. Spend a little more on a good stock paper for printing (especially with CD's) and you will save money on ink cartridges and get superior results.
This paper ensures that you can produce the same quality images you see on screen from your printer - printer allowing of course!! A highly advanced paper (160gsm, we call this card really) - this features unique technology developed between the manufacturer and Hewlett Packard which can give you up to 16% truer black and up to 25% brighter, more vivid colours. Also, because of the smoothness of the paper fibre, it is less likely to give you printer jams (and therefore less printer rage grrrr!). In addition, this paper is BRILLIANT WHITE which means the colour you want, is what you achieve and isn't distorted in any way by having a creamy coloured base stock.
Nikky also uses this for all her rubber stamping projects too, together with alcohol based pens, Promarkers and other colouring pens and pencils because it means she gets the best possible results whatever product she uses. Stamped images are clear with no texture or bumps in the paper to distort the images and alcohol markers blend perfectly without soaking too much of the ink into the paper. Again, the whiteness of the paper ensures that pale colours are a true representation - if you use anything less than a brilliant white surface pale Promarker of printed colours will change substantially and give you entirely different results than you expect.
On top of all these fantastic benefits, you should also find that your printer cartridges last longer, meaning you ultimately get much more value for money, after all, its cheaper to invest a bit more in paper than it is to keep replacing those expensive printer inks!
You can use this for watercolours but it will warp slightly if it gets too wet and we recommend using a good watercolour paper for that technique.
Fabulous for printing and for using with my pencil colouring! Would highly recommend!
Bought this too use with Lyras and I have to say after trying 6 or 7 others, this is by far the best. Smooth yet enough texture to grab the colours! Will be back for more very soon :)
