Default Note Card Printing Help!!!

I am trying to print some thank you cards. Now I have already printed the interiors. But my problem has been printing the cover. All I am trying to do is print a little bit of text on the cover. On the 2 Samples I have tried the Ink will not adhere to the Paper. I have let it sit for over an hour & it still wipes off. I didn't buy the paper as I am doing this for my mother. The mfr. website (Gartner Studios, Inc.) does give any advice for printer setting. I have tried the paper settings @ Plain & Semigloss Photo Paper.

Tha paper has a semigloss finish. Can anyone help me? This has been frustrating.

I am using an Epson R300.

Try printing with different paper. Some papers do not take ink well at all on the back side.

For my Christmas Cards, I use Office Depot Multi Project Photo Paper, glossy on both sides and 88# so it makes good thick paper for cards.

To fold it, you need to score the card, otherwise it makes for a rough fold edge.
