What is the best paper to print scrapbook pages on?

I am going to get some Scrapbook pages printed at Kinkos and I am not sure if a glossy cardstock would turn out better than just a matte… I am leaning toward the glossy, but I am not sure if it will be too "shiny" and look awkward. Thanks!

It really is your personal preference. The glossy really looks like ‘photo’ paper. I usually choose matte. You might also want to check out a place called www.sbtoshare.com. They are reasonable with cost- $1.75 per page and a flat $5 for shipping. They do great printing in all sizes though I’d mostly use them for 12×12 and just print smaller ones myself. The website is www.sbtoshare. com – I checked with a few online Yahoo digital scrapbook groups and this is the most recommended site that I found. It is also very easy to email them digitally and they’ll do a free sample for you. Hope that helps.

  2. Heavy weight acid free paper. I’ve seen a special pouch that you can rub over your paper before printing to help with smearing and reduce drying time. The usual scrap stores should have it.
