Inkjet Papers

Double Sided

Double sided papers are project papers - great for creating photos books, albums, and cards.

They CAN be a bit tricky to work with - a few key tips are:

  • Allow the first printed side to dry for as long as possible before printing the second side - ideally several days!
  • Spray something like this protective spray on the first printed side to protect before printing the rear
  • Practise your layouts using plain paper so you know which way to load each side in for correct alignment, and take careful notes on this - it's easy to get confused!
  • If your printer has a platen suction feature, turn it right down


With a bit of care, you can make some truly beautiful things with double sided papers.  Some of the books our customers have made have been true works of art!
