    Best stock for custom cards?

    Just getting into the custom game. Nothing perfect, but it's a start.

    I am planning on printing my customs out to be brought to games to get signed. What stock do you recommend for this?

    I'm using GIMP 2 on these, which is essentially an open-source version of Photoshop.

    It takes a bit of trial-and-error, but I'm starting to learn how to get what I want.

    Personally, I like HP's Semi Gloss, but their Premium Glossy paper is good too. I like the semi-gloss because I have less cracking of the edges than with glossy paper. It looks cleaner.
