What type of media can I use on my inkjet printer?

Generally, you can use any type of paper that has an inkjet receptive coating. You will need to make sure that the thickness (measured in mils) of the inkjet media will not harm your printer. You can check what thickness media your printer will take by checking the printer specifications. We recommend referring to your printer's manual for the recommended materials. It is also appropriate to verify whether or not your printer uses dye- or pigment-based inks and match the substrate.
