PRINTING TIPS: It is better to use light ink coverage than heavy coverage, in many cases just the plain paper setting will work best. Pigmented inks usually produce less vibrant colors, but these inks are good for water and UV fade resistance. Dye based inks will provide better color vibrancy, but are not as good with water and UV fade resistance. Print only on the top coated side, not on the uncoated back side. Note that printer and ink technologies are constantly changing so you may need to experiment to determine how to get the best results based on your printer, inks and ambient conditions. This product is only for use in ink jet printers and will not work, and will melt, if you try on any toner based or laser printing platforms. Allow ink to dry for at least 30 minutes before exposure to water.
