Default What paper to use with Digi Stamps!

I recently bought some digital stamps and I am looking for some advice on how to use them.

I want to color my images with copics so what paper would I use to print them off with if I have an inkjet printer?

I think these images are going to be alot of fun.

Thanks in advance for your help!

If you don't have the new copic x-press it blending cardstock then run out and get some! I've used several different types of cardstock with my copics and this is by far the best. And it works perfectly in my printer!

Tks nancy but I don't think I will be able to buy any of that paper around here.

I will check though.

I see you're in Canada. A lot of us Canucks use Office Depot or Staples brand white 110# cardstock. I usually use Cougar smooth white 130# that I bought at a Coast paper outlet. Perhaps there is paper distributor or a printer in your area that could sell you some nicer papers. You can also order a sample pack of 40 sheets of Neenah cardstock for the cost of shipping (about $15Cdn) directly from Neenah papers online. I did this and got the largest sheets (17x23 or something like that) and used that for quite a while but only for digis - no card bases with it. I also use Wausau Exact Index 110# cardstock that I get at Staples.

Hammermill color copy cover weight paper is incredible for Copics. I saw an awesome Manga artist on You Tube using it, and the most frequently asked question was what paper did she use. I ordered some and gave it a shot and I'm completely sold on this stuff. NO bleeding, and smooooooth blending! Zips through my finicky Epson like a dream, too!

I really like the Domtar cardstock I have. It's great for copics and single layer cards because its so thick it doesn't bleed through to the back. Next time I go to Coast paper, I'm going to pick up some of the 110# 80# just to try it out.

I use Georgia-Pacific paper from walmart, and use copics, prisma pencils, and haven't had any problem with it.
If its an Inkjet printer, you will have to let the image dry completely before using copics or pencils.

I just got Canson Fanboy Manga paper to try. It is specially made for markers and lots of manga artist who use Copics are using this so I figured it would work for stamping. I did a little test yesterday and the inks blend beautifully. It seems to be good paper. I have been using bristol board and this has less bleed thru
