It is soon time for writing my Christmas letters and I need a photo paper for that purpose (paper not heavier than 170 g/m2) and which can give me a decent result for my pictures on the front side (glossy or semiglossy) and on the "backside" suitable for text only.

Have bought hp everyday photoppaper but with an extremely poor result on my Canon printer.

Does someone have an advice to give me regarding which product to buy?

Thanking you in advance.

Red River has a decent selection. They have both two sided paper and specialty card paper. Don't know whether they have it as thin as you want – they rate their paper in #s. They have a greeting card paper with gloss on one side and matte on the other. They also have some two sided gloss they say has more the look and feel of a normal printing surface. http://www.redrivercatalog.com/browse/index.htm

Thanks for your advice.

I should perhaps mention that I live in Oslo - Norway and paper qualities made by Canon, Epson, HP and Konicais much easier to find than other makers(which may not be marketed in Scandinavia at all).

Will be extremely pleased if everyone having experience with "Christmas letters in A4 format" would give me a hint !

There is a place in your profile for location – then people don't have to guess. Or waste their time with unavailable vendors.
