I think I remember seeing two-sided photo paper listed somewhere . . . maybe it was at the Atlex site that D.J. mentioned. Maybe that would be worth a try.

I've also seen two-sided photo paper, though I've never tried it.

An update from my sister:

"I don't use photo cards. Laminating melts the coating. Injet business card stock of the nicest grade available works great. They work even better as new baby cards. The parents here who have gotten them are more than pleased."

Hey Doug,
Thank your sister for all the helpful information she's supplying. The new baby thing is another good idea for retouchers. Not to mention the ideas on baseball type cards and what papers she uses. Too bad she doesn't come on this forum. I bet she would have alot to share.
DJ

Two sided photo paper...

Hey everyone, just thought I'd put my 2 cents in. Redriver carries several papers that are double coated. You may want to check them out online at http://www.redrivercatalog.com . I've been using them for about a year now. Quite pleased and happy with the quality of the products and the service. Hope someone finds this helpful.

Donald

Hawkaye, Thanks for the link. The products look interesting, especially the 2 sided offerings and the Art papers. What printer do you use and how has the print life been in your experience? Have you tried any of the watercolor type papers? Tom

Welcome to the Retouch Pro family. Thank you for the great site. They even have my Epson ink cartridges. I'm going to have to book mark this one.

redriver papers

Tom: Been using Redriver for about a year to year and half..... Using an Epson 1270 printer. I just completed an AS degree in Graphic Process at a local junior college. Basically did all my assignments at home. Results are quite impressive. Very photo-realistic, until you look at them under a loupe, then the smallest banding is visible. Color is good, and quite accurate. I'm just starting to use some of the art paper. Currently trying the art felt (like a heavy water-color paper). Print quality is quite good on it. May look at combining some of my graphic work with my mothers water color work. After printing on the paper, she can paint directly on it, basically as with standard water-color paper. I let you know more as I learn it. I'll post some images either here, or on my site (when I get it up). Thanks.

DJ: That's where I buy my ink also. Less expensive than from Epson, and none of the local stores carry the 1270 color cart.

Donald
