Quality of torso stickers.

Postby Troy T. Moore » Sun Feb 08, 2004 10:25 pm

So I get some sticker paper (non-gloss) and make a sheet of torso stickers.... I am not overly impressed with the colour quality nor the "shine" that they lack. I put clear tape over when I put them on. There is a slight improvement but the colour still looks "washed-out" a bit. I have a good printer. Will gloss paper make a big difference? Thank you.

Yes.

I recently got some Photo paper and it seems to work quite well...

Can you recommend an actual product name (and number)? I'd rather not find myself asking: "Did he mean this type? Or that one?"

Thanks.

I do not have a preference. There aren't too many sticker papers catered towards the Laser printer at this point. As a matter of fact, you can probably get away with InkJet sticker paper.
I'll leave the http://www.google.com search up to you.

I tend to use the only kind of whole-sheet sticker paper that Office Depot carries. Then I print the torso sheet that I have prepared in publisher on a high-definition laser printer. (photo quality pritining)
