I am prining on the Canon s900 and am wondering what paper selection I should choose to print on the card stock that I have. It is not photo paper.

I have tried a couple of selections of paper and they do not look proper on the card stock. Should I be changing the print quality selection on the printer also?

Thanks for any insight. :blink:

You might want to do a google search for a profile for the S900 with the paper you are using.

Changing paper that dramatically will also dramatically change your results.

Good luck!

I think you really need to get a photo paper. What's the weight of the card stock you're using? Is it glossy?

I use a Kodak medium to heavy lb glossy white paper stock and results has been pretty consistent. Royal Brites high gloss photo paper is also good and a lot cheaper than the Kodak photo paper.


Yes, set the print quality to HIGH but definitely get a photo paper.

Hope this helps..
