    How do you feel about papers printed at home being used in swap items? Please be honest. I've done this in the past, because I couldn't find exactly what I had in mind at the store. Sometimes I've printed a digital paper, and sometimes even designed my own. But I've always wondered if other swappers feel cheated. Since I don't have any plans right now to use any in a swap, it is a good time to let me know how you feel. I promise....I won't have my feelings hurt if you say you don't like it!

    Thanks for your honest input.

    Since you are designing part of the paper, as far as I'm concerned, it would be like other SB paper. I wouldn't have a problem as long as it is acid free, and the same quality of paper.

    I wouldn't have a problem with it. It would be something different.

    I wouldn't have any problems with it either. We all know how hard it can be to find the "right" one. I say go for it!

    As long as the quality is there, it sounds great. May as well make the "perfect" paper instead of spending tons of gas and time searching for a substitute.
    I kinda did this for a swap. Found a great paper in the wrong size, but it wouldn't cut down well, so I bought one and shrank it to the size I needed so it kept all the qualities of the original and made copies on my photo printer.

    I agree i wouldn't have any problems with it either as long as the quality is there. As far as i'm concerned the time you take to design a page makes it worth it as well. Its the creativity and time, not the price of the page that counts.

    Thanks for answering. I was hoping that was how you all felt. When I do use digital printing, I only print on acid-free/lignin free laser paper-24 lb or better , and the laser toner is stated by HP to be acid-free and archival.
