Paper Recommendations

Most of our printables are sized for 8.5 x 11 (letter-sized) paper. Any exceptions to this will be included in the details on the download page for that item.

Standard printer paper will work for many designs such as coloring pages, mazes, stationery,and more.

Use card stock for best results with designs like award certificates and recipe cards.

Some designs (such as graph paper) are available for letter, A4, and legal-size paper. Make sure you select the correct template for the size of paper you are using.

Make sure you buy paper that is compatible with your printer. For example, there is paper specifically designed to work with laser printers.

You might need to adjust printer settings so your printer knows what kind of paper you are using. These settings will generally be available in your print dialog when you go to print something. Check your printer manual if you need help to find these settings.

We are unable to recommend specific products for several reasons:

  • Products can change over time. We have come across numerous paper products on with reviews stating the quality has declined. We can't keep track of this, so it's better for you to consult reviews before buying. You may also be able to get help with selecting paper at an office supply store.
  • Your printer may not support the paper we recommend. You should check your printer manual for details on the types of paper that work with your printer.
