Potlatch Mountie Matte is an excellent laser paper if you need to print color photographs.

Be sure not to use inkjet paper in a laser printer. Inkjet paper has a prepared surface that may damage the insides of your laser printer. If you need to print on both sides (called duplexing) then you have to have a duplex unit included. If you attempt to print on both sides without a duplex unit the toner from the first side will melt off and smear all over the insides when reheated. This may damage the insides of your printer and require costly replacements.

This is why we recommend that people don't buy cheap laser printers (or paper) at OfficeDepot or other stores that sell generic products.

Mountie Matte has a cream shade that enhances the color images. We much prefer the heavier stock, it adds substance to any publication, manual, or workbook. Once we recognized the qualities of Mountie Matte, we checked out what else Potlatch had to offer and found Potlatch McCoy, which we will be testing soon.

In the meantime, Potlatch papers are available from Mac Papers. Potlatch 1 800 447-2133
