View Full Version : Printing with a canon printer
07-22-2006, 11:36 PM
I am thinking of printing my own LO, cause in Denmark there are no service available for printing like in the US (boohoo... :cry: )
Those of you with canon printers, can you tell me what paper you use to print on?
I have a Canon Pixma IP8500 :)

Yours is a newer version than mine and after some experimenting I found that the Canon Glossy Photo Paper was the best in quality when printed for the price, but I know Canon do more exspensive papers too!
I think if you stick to a Canon paper then you will be fine, every other brand I tried (3 different ones) were not as good and the colours weren't as bright.

Have you tried printing on matte papers or cardstock?

I have the canon i9900 and I love it. I print on both glossy and matte and get beautiful results every time. I have only used canon paper and the only down side is ... canon doesn't have the wide variety of paper like Epson. But, I'm pretty happy with either matte or glossy and like I said, my prints are GORGEOUS.

The canon matte paper is simply called Matte Photo Paper. The canon glossy paper I use is called Photo Paper Plus Glossy. I think there's something called Photo Paper Pro, but if I recall correctly, it's a lot more expensive that the "photo paper plus glossy" so I just stick to that and I am 100% satisfied.
If I had to choose between the two, I actually prefer the matte. That's weird, considering I always used to have my photos printed onto glossy when I was a paper scrapper, but since I switched to digital, I prefer the entire layout to be matte.

I have the Cnon Pixma 4000R and I print on Kodak glossy photo paper or on matte photo paper (can't recall the manufacturer, maybe Fuji? I'm not at home to check). Have had great results with both.
