I'd like to print out some photos and send them as postcards to my friends.
I have some 280gsm 6x4 paper but even that seems a bit flimsy to post.
Does anyone know where I can get thicker photo paper, in 6x4 size?
Plus, I'm just about to order an R800. Can it actually take thicker paper?

Redriver makes some nice heavy product. They have serval products, postcards and greating cards of several weights and finishs. Good guys too out of Texas.

One thing to check...will the print path on a Epson R800 support heavy stock?

Red Rivers site for post cards:
