These are old photos but the basic use is still the same, just more black binders.

TIMM: 110 pound paper? What printer do you use with that? It must be a straight paper path to handle that weight. My HP4plus can accommodate the 65# stock I use but it's technically heavier than it's rated for. My HP4700 has a straight paper path but I haven't tried anything that heavy yet.

StateRev: I'm impressed according to the specs from HP that printer will handle 163 GMS which translates to 111 pounds in the US and a max resolution of 1200x1200.

Here is an example of the pages I make for my state revenue stamps.

Always on 110 pound paper.

Ok... just reading up on printers and paper weights.
163gsm = 111 lbs of regular paper.
300gsm = 110 lbs cover (card) stock.

So the HP P2035 is able to handle 110# (163gms) Paper but that translates to about 60# of cover (card) stock. So this is about the same as what I can put through my HP4 Plus.

TIMM: You said your using 110# card (cover) stock. Does the paper package say "cover"? If so, which printer are you using?

SteveRevs: Nice clean page. Do you buy the paper with the rounded corners or have a cutter that rounds them?

As a point of comparison, Lighthouse album pages are 170 gsm, Yvert's premium pages are 190 gsm.

I use a corner cutter I found on Amazon after seeing a post about it here on SCF. Has not caused me any issues and has lasted more than 700 or so pages (two corners per page).

I use 110 card stock - not "paper".

TIMM: Yes I see the HP Envy specs does show that it can handle 300gsm. It's got a nice straight-through paper path. I'll have to give that a try I bought my wife one last Christmas for photos and never gave it a thought. Just as a test though. I don't intend to change my album pages or hog up her printer. I am happy with my current card stock (175gsm 65 lb. cover) and current laser printers: for B&W HP 4 Plus and for color HP 4700DTN.

StateRevs: I'll have to give that corner cutter a thought. It would save future corner ware.

Have I just been unlucky in that every HP printer I've owned is super inconsistent when paper s fed straight in. 75% of the time the paper is sucked in slightly crooked. I've thrown out too many pages because of this.

Plus if you're printing hundreds of pages, hand feeding straight is a non-starter.

BwanaBob: Sorry I have not logged in for a while and just saw this. What model HP's have you been using? Mine are pretty old in computer years. My HP4Plus I got in the early 90's and the 4700 I bought used around 10 years ago.

Since then I have bought two newer HP's a 7612 and a 7740. The 7612 multi-function I bought because it printed and scanned 11x17. I hate it. It DRINKS ink and a MUCH higher rate than advertised. I don't print on it now I just use it for a large scanner the 7740 I returned because they lie... the box and ad says it prints and scans up to 11x17. It prints 11x17, but only scans letter and legal size.

Both newer HPs did occasionally skew the page. The HP4Plus and the HP4700 are pretty good about printing straight. The 4700 does tend to skew from trays 4 and 5 though so I keep my cover stock in tray 3.
