PIXMA MG3260 Paper Recommendation for Custom Baseball Cards


Hello, I'd like to print custom baseball cards and these are the minimum paper requirements:

- 16-18 pt cardstock;  -semigloss or gloss;  -8.5x11 or larger

Any suggestions?

My question has nothing to do with a specific model of printer, or whether it is or isn't a US model that's currently being supported by Canon.  My question is about paper products - specifically which product would meet the criteria I listed in my original post.  

Since there is no specific forum for these kinds of posts, I chose this forum.



I suggest you first look for a printer that can even handle stock this thick. The material has to be able to follow the paper path of the printer. And be printable on an inkjet or laser.


I have a Pixma MG3260.  It can handle 16pt cardstock, probably more.  In fact, I've already printed several 8.5x11 sheets of 16 pt cardstock.  The issue is that paper is hit or miss.  Some paper/cardstock is not very good, resulting in poor quality prints.  Other cardstock, such as the 6x9 glossy photo paper I printed on, produces excellent results.  However, it's a little too thin for my purposes.   Which leads me to why I'm here on this forum asking if anyone has recommendations for good cardstock that meets my requirements.
