Canvas Paper

Hi,
Does anyone have a source for Canvas Computer Paper. I ordered it years ago from www.pariscorp.com, but that domain seems to be gone. Tried Google and EBay and didn't find offers that really spoke to me.

Thanks, Aunt Mary

Canvas paper that is compatible with computer printers is not cheap, Mary... prices run from a little over a dollar [generic brand] per page to over three dollars [Strathmore] (for 8-1/2 x 11). If you are willing to buy 100+ sheets at one time, the price can be less. What price range are you looking for?

If you do a Froogle search, you'll find a number of sources at varying prices.

I bought canvas paper on Ebay from www.canvas-photo.com. I checked out their website and they don't have it listed for sale there.
My package contained 20 sheets and I can't remember what I paid for it, but it wasn't too much.

I have bought it at Best Buy

Michael's used to carry it but don't know if they do now. Office Depot carries it. I would image Staples or Office Max carries it, too.

RE: Canvas Paper

Canvas paper comes in two forms: paper that contains real fabric and paper that is merely embossed with a cloth pattern. The latter is much less expensive, but is "fake" canvas, although I would buy some more if I could find it. Some brands of inkjet canvas tend to jam in my older Epson printer.

I went shopping for inkjet canvas in our local Staples a few days ago and was disappointed not to find any. I expected at least two different kinds. Epson used to have their own brand of inkjet canvas, but in a recent online search I failed to find any of the Epson canvas. Epson may have discontinued it.

I will check our local Michaels store and, failing there, I will resort to an online search. As Red_Confetti mentioned, inkjet canvas is not cheap.

Hi,

Well, I bought some canvas cloth at JoAnn's, ironed in very smooth, cut it to 8 1/2 x 11 on my paper cutter and put it through my HP InkJet. Worked like a charm. The printing was a little light in color, ran it thru twice and it was fine. I printed a photograph, blurred the edges and it really looks good.

I did not find any canvas paper at the Office Depot in my town and a search of the web didn't give me any sources that I did not have some question about.

I haven't tried it yet, but intend to soak a piece in Bubble Jet to see if I can get darker printing on one pass that way. I may have to iron it onto freezer paper and the total thickness may be a problem. Will let you all know.
