Question Gina K Pure Luxury,digi stamps and copics

Hi,
Does anyone know if Gina K Pure Luxury cardstock can be used to print digi stamps and then used with copics without any smearing?
Which printer is better, laser or deskjet?
Thank you very much for any advice!

I don't know about the Gina K paper, but I have printed my digi stamps on Flourishes white and colored them with Copic markers. There was no smearing. I have an HP Deskjet.

I've heard Pure Luxury works well. I use Stamping Bell's "Best Papah Evah" and it's awesome. I use it for drawing digi's as well. It's the smoothest I've found.
But, a lot of people swear by Pure Luxury.

I just used Gina K.'s Pure Luxury 80lb. paper in my printer and had no issues. I do set it for one of the lower settings when I print and I also let it sit for a few hours because I'm using a cheap "All in One" Dell printer. I've had no issues with any ink smearing.......but, tested it carefully, just in case.

I use Gina K ivory (layering weight) cardstock. I heat set the ink and I wait a few hours before using copics. No problems.
With my printer, pure luxury white smears a bit because it is smoother.

I use GKD paper almost exclusively for my cards. The layering weight works great thru my laser printer. The printer doesn't much care for the heavy weight, but will do one or 2 pages before getting stuck. And the Copics blend beautifully on it! And it works great with Prismacolor Pencils as well.
