Unlike some big arts and crafts stores, I appreciate Paperandmore's cardstock of texture/style to be on both sides (front and back). Also, love how much care they put into their packaging, even if it's samples.
This paper is absolutely gorgeous, and makes anything printed on it look stunning. The product description mentions that the ink may take 24-48 hours to dry. In my experience, it took between 2 and 4 hours to become dry enough that I could rub it with my finger without smudging it or getting ink on my finger. The printed image shows up very clear and sharp. I printed each sheet one at a time and gave each its own spot to dry so that they wouldn't smudge each other while leaving the printer. I used my home printer, which is an epson workforce wf2630. I think the paper was a little too thick for my printer, as a slight 2-inch vertical crease was made starting at the bottom of each page where the printer grabbed it. It's not enough to bother me, as the printed page is busy enough to pretty much hide it.
At first I used the champagne pearlescent card stock for my wedding invitations, and I ordered a pack of this paper because it was cheaper, so I wanted to test how it would work if I were to use this for wedding programs and escort cards, and the invitations looked so much better on this paper! The metallic has such a brilliant sheen on this paper that when you print light colored ink on it, the text, pictures, background colors, and everything still looks metallic. The other paper looked a bit dull with ink on it, but this was still shiny and beautiful. It's a bit thinner, but it was nice that it didn't get stuck in the printer like the other one did, and it was easier to cut and handle. It also didn't curl after being printed on like the thicker metallics did.
This is my second order for this paper. It is awesome. The quality is outstanding. I am using it for favor tags, programs, and table numbers for my daughter's wedding. I love it. I am very impressed with your company, also. Will keep you in mind for future orders.
