Pecos Gloss Greeting Card Stock

I found this company online one day when I was looking for the glossy greeting card. I have been buying them from your company for a while now since Hallmark no longer sells them and I truly love these greeting card stock. I make birthdays, sympathy, weddings, graduations, and more for everyone. I can’t do without them and thank you for your service. Well pleased and will continue to buy them.

Best in the World

I have been buying this product for some years, originally through a company in Australia. This company ceased stocking Red River products, so I went looking online for a similar product in Australia, only to find there were none. I started buying direct from Red River, finding I was actually getting twice the number of cards per pack and even with freight, it was costing me less than when I purchased in Australia. Fantastic products. I am a photographer and will not use anything else for my greeting cards. Also great support.

Impressed with this paper
Printer Used: Canon Pro 100 using Canon ink. The paper was the 60 lb. greeting card glossy on 1 side plain on the other. Regarding curling issues or ink splotches we have had no issues with this paper and printer combination. Of course I had made sure that the rollers and bottom plate were cleaned before starting. As to image quality both my wife and I in addition to the folks who received our Christmas cards were very impressed with the quality of the card and images. I would like to order more of this paper without the indention's for my regular glossy paper. Thank you Red River for the great job you do on these papers. Steven

After printing some pretty junky Christmas cards on other 5x10 folded card stock, this knocked my socks off. The quality is right up there with premium glossy photo paper (Epson, HP, etc), and (not a minor point) the scoring makes accurate folding really easy. And no problems at all, e.g. with the score crease catching the print heads. Epson Tips: For photos (only photos : I use a Brother laser for ordinary stuff) I use an old Epson C88 Stylus printer with LD inks (can't afford Epson ink for 50+ cards, though it's very good). For this card stock, making 4 test prints, I ended up with C88 Advanced settings as follows: +15 on brightness, -5 on contrast, and (for the weak LD yellow ink) +15 on yellow. Then saved it (as Pecos!). Without the brightness and contrast adjustments, I found prints too dark and quite a bit too contrasty. Could be the inks, could also be the paper; but these adjustments work for me. Hope this is helpful. This is great stuff. Wish I'd had it 3 weeks ago before printing all my Xmas cards!

Issues with Pixma Pro 100
I have some problems with this specific paper hitting the print head, even when using the "reduce abrasion" setting. This happened with 2 separate printers. I'm having to keep design elements well away from the bottom margin of the paper. Not ideal. I've seen just a few mentions of this on the internet so it doesn't seem to be a guaranteed problem, but be aware.

Too Thin!
TW Moore
After printing my first 50 cards, there is noticeable curling of the paper. However,the print and color quality is excellent printing on my Canon Pro-10 printer. Wish the paper was a bit heavier so the curling would not be an issue.

Great color, problems with Epson Surecolor P600
Tom Hanify
Great colors. But, I've used this paper for several years. I must load the seets one at a time because the P600 jams when there are more than one sheet in the feed area as the printer tries to load several sheets at a time.

So satisfied

Because of the beautiful print quality I've had using this paper for my 5x7 cards on my Epson 1900 printer, I am now in the process of making the switch from only using Epson papers to Red River Paper for all my printing needs.
