Hi! I came across this website while doing some google searching about the issue I'm having. I realize this is a stamper site but I seen a few others posts like this here so who knows, one of you might be able to help me
I've recently purchased the Tombow brush tip markers at a great price, I've never used anything like this before so I'm a bit of a newbie.
I was having pretty poor results on my coloring pages printed on card stock so I did some research and purchases a laser printer. Everything I read it stated that this "ink" is supposed to be somewhat waterproof.
On another site I seen a lady recommend using Canson Mixed Media paper you can get in a notebook form, she said she just cut it down to fit in the printer.
I did this and the makers work pretty well, there is some pilling if I go over a spot too much. My big issue is when I use the blender marker, some of the ink is smearing into my colors.
The printer is a Brother color laser printer and it's supposed to handle card stock... It seems to have no issue printing on the Canson paper, it's not as thick as card stock. When I brush my fingers over it the ink does not smear, it's only when I try to blend over it.
Does anyone have any insight on why this is happening and when I could do to remedy it? Perhaps there is better paper I should be using with the laser printer? Having to cut it down to size is no problem.
Thank you in advance for any assistance
