Digital backing papers!

Postby DingleDel » Sat Jan 14, 2012 12:36 pm

I have been asked to make up a small wedding order (about 35invites) but cannot source a suitable backing paper. I am considering printing off my own using a digi download backing paper but this is not something I have done much of.

Would I really get a good enough finish for a wedding order? How on earth would I cost it?

Has anyone got any advice to get the best finish please? What paper should I use? I may have a go with my Rymans card I use with my Copic!

EEK! Any ideas much appreciated. :angel:

When i print digi background papers I often use my Rymans card, the finish is really good, I also use a hammered finish, I really like that look as well, not sure about costing though.

It'll be Rymans bright white coated cardstock Liz. Its good with Copics and Promarkers too.

Nitwits have some lovely downloads Adele.

I'd suggest something around 50p max per sheet of A4.

I would say definitely thin card rather than paper, I use it for stuff I have done over the years. I can't think that anyone would notice that you have printed it yourself tbh - I would go for it.

Thanks. I must get some next time I am in Brighton or Horsham. Is it heavy enough as a base card?

I wouldn't say so Liz, I use it to print off my digi images or to stamp onto, then layer onto a base card. x

I use 160gsm for printing out both digi stamps and papers and they work fine.
