compare prices on the colors you want at paper-papers.com, lcipaper.com, and I even found some cheap and new on ebay. Paperdepot.inc has lots of selection, but not necessarily the cheapest.

 I did much research and heard that some people had no problem with their inkjets on stardream–BUT, I did it myself and was not happy with it. First, the cardstock is VERY heavy and I’ve heard that it jams up easily. Second, I only printed on text weight stardream and I let it dry for day and was still able to smudge it with a heavy rub of a finger. And if your finger is a little wet or sweaty, it’s even worse.

I tried overspraying with hairspray, which worked, but some heavy dots fell and bled the ink… 🙁 I was so frustrated!

So, my now hubby had a laser printer at work and we just went in after hours and ran stuff off there! 🙂 SOOO much easier… and no smudging!

If you have any resources or way to use a laser on stardream, I say do it!

Good luck…

I found great prices and selection at http://www.cutcardstock.com.

I printed all of the pieces of my invitation on a Canon backloading photo printer and had absolutely no problems with smudging.

What kind of photo printer do you have, Vyeta? I’m hoping to make my christmas cards this year and want to print a photo of my daughter on it, so I am in the market for a good photo printer, that had a straight feed.

I wouldn’t  use an inkjet to print on stardream.  Not only does it smudge (even after letting it dry) it also prints a lot lighter.  If you print on a laser printer you will really see a difference in the quality.
