Anybody shoot and print their own Christmas Cards? What kind of paper stock do you
use? Is it as heavy as the stock used on commercial Christmas cards?

Canon's little dyesub printers (cp-series or seplphy series) can print on a 4x8, and are printed on a postcard like paper (the 4x6 si a postcard with markings and all on the back).
Perfect for the family christmas card. The printers are usually very cheep at J&R, and makes a great travel toy. Snd your own postcards while on vacation.

What kind of printer will you use? ???
I have done cards on color lasers and on color inkjets. For color inkjets they make double sided (printable on both sides) photo paper ex. Kodak Picture Paper at 51lb weight, which works great for cards :) For color lasers a plain heavy stock paper works well. I personally found that papers 50lb or heavier is good enough for cards :)

I'm a bird photo freak.My friends and family know it. My gig at the holidays is to pick a photo from the past year and have the lab print 4x6 prints as card inserts. I write the specie and notes on a post it and mail them off. This year is a Cedar waxwing in a serviceberry tree.
