  • Recommended Paper Type

    Using heavyweight photo paper (200-350 gsm) or cardstock paper for home printing offers several advantages:

    • High-quality prints: These papers are designed to absorb ink well, resulting in sharp and vibrant images with high resolution
    • Durable and long-lasting: The weight and thickness of the paper make it more resistant to wear and tear, making the prints more durable and long-lasting.
    • Professional look and feel: The matte finish provides a professional and polished look to the prints, similar to those produced in a commercial print shop.
    • Versatility: Heavyweight matte photo paper and cardstock paper are suitable for a wide range of printing projects, from family photos to business cards, invitations, and art prints.
    • Wide compatibility: Most home printers are compatible with heavyweight matte photo paper and cardstock paper, making it easy to create high-quality prints without the need for specialized equipment or software.
  • The following printers have the capability to handle thicker paper types, including heavyweight matte photo paper and cardstock paper, and produce high-quality prints. The Canon PIXMA TS9521C and Epson Expression Photo HD XP-15000 are both designed specifically for photo printing, while the HP Envy 6055 and Brother MFC-J805DW are more versatile all-in-one printers.

    Please note that printer companies add small improvements to their printers every year so the model number listed below do update over time.

  • Using a local printing shop has several advantages over buying a printer, including:

    Cost savings: While buying a printer may seem like a one-time expense, the cost of ink, toner, and maintenance can quickly add up. A local printing shop allows you to pay only for the prints you need, saving you money in the long run.

    High-quality prints: Local printing shops typically have professional-grade printers and use high-quality paper, resulting in better print quality than many home printers can achieve.

    Time savings: When using a local printing shop, you don't have to spend time setting up and troubleshooting a printer. Plus, you can often get prints done quickly, sometimes even on the same day.

    Customization options: Local printing shops can often provide customization options that are not available with home printers, such as different paper types, finishes, and sizes.

    Expertise: Printing shop staff are usually experts in their field and can provide advice on design, layout, and printing options to help you achieve the best results.
