I think I"m going to make "Thank you" type cards using some of my garden images.

what would be the best way to go about this? I'd hate to buy a lot of card stock, only to have it too thick for my printer, or buy somethign too thin.

does anyone do this?? and is there some type of card stock that would be like "glossy" photograph paper?

TIA,

Terese

Most printers will take quite a load. I have even done sheets of magnets!!
I buy photo paper at Costco and it works well. It's a little sturdier than most cardstock. You can get glossy or matte I think, but the glossy is so nice. Make sure when you print, that you print on high quality, and you will be happy with the results!
Happy printing!

since i will ve using 8x11 sheets, how many "cards" can i get on one sheet? and then i just cut them into individual cards??

The photo paper i currently have says "Kodak" on the back... that would not work for cards. Or, could i print the photos, then cut and paste them onto the card stock??

as you can tell... i'm new to this crafty stuff.

Yup, I would just print out the photos on the Kodak stuff, cut them, and then put them onto the card. You could do 4X5, or 5X7, but the larger one would probably cost more to mail. Go for it. Try one and see what you think. Or print out one page of pictures and see what you think. Print the pictures first on a plain piece of paper so you can see what it looks like and it it's what you want. Just keep tweaking until is!
