Default Calendar printing - what kind of paper?

For those of you that print your calendars at home (particularly Epson users), what kind of paper do you use for your wall calendars and CD case calendars? I typically use Epson Premium Glossy for my layouts but never printed a calendar. What works best for you?

Thanks,
Barb

I use Epson Heavyweight Matte Paper for most of my print jobs involving layouts or calendars because I love that matte finish and I love the weight of the paper. It is coated on both sides so you can print on both sides. I allow an hour between printing on one side before I print on the other just to make absolutely sure there are no ink smears and it works great. And the printouts are just gorgeous. I get a little tired of glossy so the matte finish is more my style. I print on an Epson printer using Epson inks and Epson paper. I'm a believer (after demonstrating it to myself) that using the same brand inks and papers as your printer makes for the best printouts.

Not all Epson heavyweight matte paper is coated on both sides so you can print on both sides. If you want to print on both sides, be sure you purchase Epson's double-sided heavyweight matte paper. I know it's available in 8.5x11 and 12x12.
