The most common issues that arises when printing Digital Collage Sheets are that they print too small or too large. These issues can be fixed easily by following these 2 simple steps.
What Type of Printer?
I prefer using a laser printer when printing the collage sheets. But I understand that not everyone has a laser printer. No fear, you can also pop over to Kinkos, OfficeMax or Officedepot. Make sure to tell the person who is printing the collage sheets that you would like them on matte card stock and to print the file at 100% (not shrink to fit)
If you decide to print from home on your inkjet printer this too is also a fine decision.
What Type of Paper?
The type of paper that you need all depends on the type of project that you will be making with the printed collage sheet.
- If you plan on making jewelry with the collage sheet, such as wood pendant or placing the image in a bezel. I suggest that you use 28lb to 32lb paper with a whiteness rating of at least 98.
- If you plan on using the collage sheet for something like Mixed Media Art I would suggest using card stock paper about 65lb or heavier.
