    Thanks Jill,

    Sounds like you had some good results with the canvas. I checked Avery out. They also offer watercolor, leather, pebble, and corduroy. That's quite an assortment.

    I have some nice images of my grand children and would like to make up something special for my daughter. It sounds like the canvas might be what I'm looking for.

    Ed, I have 3 framed canvas prints on my wall (no glass) and have had no fading in two years....amazingly so. The colors are great That is the extent of my knowledge! Oh, I use a h/p deskjet 952c printer.

    A staggering array of papers (and other things) can be printed on if your printer has two things: a straight-through printing path (or a bypass option that allows a straight-through path), and a paper thickness adjustment of some sort (my Epson 1270 has a lever on the right-hand side, under the cover).

    Thanks Jill. Do you know anything about the keeping qualities of the paper?

    Ed,
    That is one of the pictures I did on canvas...a wedding party, and they loved it. I think it was Avery paper...very thick but went thru the printer no problem.

    Debbie,

    If you try it, let us know what you think about it. Also the brand name, and anything else that might be pertinent. I haven't tried anything out of the norm, but it sounds interesting. When I was shooting weddings, I would sometimes have a nice large print made on canvas. They really looked impressive, and I just wonder how the canvas paper would compare.

    I haven't tried anything out of the norm but t-shirt transfer paper and although it printed well, I wasn't as impressed with the looks of the transfer vs silk screening. You got to becareful in the ironing process. It seems to last quite a long time and through numerous washings though since the transfer was done about 3 years ago on a new t-shirt that has now become a work shirt but the transfer is still going strong.
    I am seriously considering trying the textured paper after what Jill said. Sounds great. I would love to add canvas look to my printings other than applying a texture filter from Photoshop.

    I have used the canvas paper and I don't remember the brand. I had great results and everyone thinks the pictures are paintings....funny but true!

    Textured Paper

    Hi,

    Has anybody had experience using different types of paper when making prints? The last time I was looking at paper I noticed that Kodak offers a variety of textured papers. I was wondering if they could be used create photo prints with a different look.
