I see things pop up on Pinterest about printing PL cards from your computer. Anyone do this or have any suggestions? Thought it would be good if I'm looking for a specific type of card that I don't have in my kit.

I love using the Canon 4x6 matte photo paper for printing journal cards. It prints so well and you can fit two cards per 4x6 sheet (I set it up in Photoshop) I always use the highest quality settings when printing too (I have a Canon Pixma printer).

I personally love Epson printers and matte presentation paper!! Also running everything through WendyZine's "Sharpen It" action before printing digi elements/cards is worth it's figurative weight in gold, plus I swear it saves ink!! I don't like it when I'm printing photos on photo paper with my Selphy printer, but on anything I do hybrid-wise I always use it. I use an Epson 1400 Stylus Photo for about all of my project printing and an Epson Workforce WF-3520 for everyday stuff. I think that helps a lot too, everyday stuff through an inexpensive printer and pretty stuff through the "good" printer. Matte presentation paper is essential for printing too. The color takes so well on it. I don't have preference I live in small town so I buy mine from Sam's it's a little thicker weight so I like it. The Epson and Staples brands (when I can find them) cost more and are very thin in comparison. Here and here are pages I did digitally and printed on matte presentation paper using my Epson 1400.

Thanks for the Shout Out Sandy! Persnickety prints journal cards too if you want to send some out for printing.

I print from online using my regular HP printer, and Epson Presentation Paper. I've used cardstock before, but I like the look and feel of the presentation paper. It's not super thick, but it's thicker than regular printer paper.
