Will the paper go through my printer?

Most papers will happily travel through an inkjet printer though rough surfaces may give varying results,some papers will bleed and some inks may not adhere well on shiny or synthetic surfaces. It is always advisable to try a few sheets first to determine results. Laser printers demand special papers that can withstand the high temperatures when fusing toner to them. Most smooth papers will go through a laser printer as will our whole range of translucent papers. However, printers do vary a lot and again we recommend testing a few sheets before committing to a big order. Please feel free to ask about any product if you are unsure.
