I have used Word, LibreOffice, Powerpoint & Visio at various points, but found each a little cumbersome for the purpose - either modifying Steiner pages or creating new - now have moved to using AlbumEasy exclusively. Works very well for my purposes.

I use Scribus for my Mystic page clones and LibreOffice Draw for editing PDFs. Scribus has some excellent features for aligning objects but think the program overall is clunky.

I don't create pages at all although I easily could with Revit. Do you just buy special acid-free paper to run through your printer?

I buy acid free paper to use for my Album Easy pages. I have been doing this since 2016

There is nothing special about cheap 'acid free' paper, it often is just marketing hype. Quality paper is costly, typically 2-5 times more than the cheap 'acid free' paper you can buy at a office supply store. You can learn more here

I am not able to find good archival paper that is inkjet friendly.

From what I was told, you want to get paper that is acid and lingen free AND is buffered.

I was also highly believe in 100% cotton paper. But cotton paper is NOT inkjet friendly, unless you're using an inkjet printer that has pigmented ink.

Look for inkjet archival "fine art" paper - it is typically 100 percent rag/cotton fiber and has a weight above 280 gsm.

There are others, note that there is also archival inkjet ink.

I use Corel Ventura 10 for all my exhibit pages and all of my books.
I print pages on International Paper Accent Opaque Digital, 65lb cover smooth (#188560)
Paper works with either HP laserjet or inkjet printers (I use inkjet for exhibit pages)
I mount stamps and covers in Kangura "L" sealed transparent mounts ny Bolaffi, Italy (perforated stamps, black or old stack gray backing mounts)
I put pages into Atlantic Protective pouch pages with added hole-punched selvage at left to fit lighthouse deluxe binders.

I think all this can contribute to a very professional and attractive presentation

Found this interesting article on HPs website about acid-free and archival paper.

https://support.hp.com/us-en/document/c00740449

HP is saying that "acid-free" is not the whole story. They strongly believe in lingen free paper, but make the case that coated paper is in a different league, since there is a coating on the surface of the paper that prevents anything on the surface from contacting the actual paper.

Interesting read for "paper geeks."

Most "fine art" paper is sold in rolls, and not 8x11 sheets, sadly.
