Hi there,

I am looking at the canon pixma ip 4000 to print out my coloured photos which I then would like to turn into postcards. I believe you can get postcard printing paper. So far evrything s ok but I have just read on the net that canon does not reccomend printing postcards with that printner. Is this true? and has anybody tried printing on postcards paper with this printer? Yours lola

Inkjet printers require special surface coatings (usually nanoporous or swellable) to absorb the ink quickly to keepit from running. Why not buy a thick 8.5x11 photo printing paper and cut it to size?
