How do I print Journaling Cards

One question that I get pretty often from my customers is how is the best way to print journaling cards. This is the way I print mine:

I always include individual journaling cards saved as JPG files and ready to print PDF sheets to my Printable Journaling Cards Sets.

I prefer to print the PDF sheets in heavy weight print paper or smooth white cardstock.

I usually buy heavy print paper with 120 g/m² and 160 g/m² in large packs (100 sheets), size Letter or A4. You find these nearly everywhere. I buy mine in the supermarket here in Germany 😉 These large packs are the best value for money and the cards print beautifully.

I do not recommend using textured cardstock because the cards end up looking “printed” and not like the “real” Project Life Journaling Cards. These have a smooth texture.

Be sure to choice the highest quality setting and that page scaling is deselected or set to 100% as in the image below.

For the 6×4″ or 4×6″ cards I prefer to cut a sheet of 12×12″ smooth cardstock in 6 pieces and print the cards individually. I buy a white cardstock bulk pack once a year and cut the sheets to size and have them ready to print. I them print the 6×4″ cards like I print my photos. Here is also important to set the printer to 100%.

And that’s it.

Printable journaling cards are versatile and affordable. You can print them again and again for multiple projects!
