Default Re: Kiss Cut Paper

Hi guys,
I think it is important to know that although the Kisscut papers are for inkjet printers and they do say you can use the normal ink in your printer, if you do they wont hold up too well in the wash.
You need to use pigment based ink and not the ordinary dye based inks that come in your printer.
Pigment based inks will last up to 40-60 washes without fading.
Kisscut sell thier own brand of pigment based inks too. I did not buy thier ink tho......
I got mine from a company that sells Continuous Ink Supply Systems (CSS) and they sold pigment based inks too, so I got the whole kit for the CSS system from that company instead of Kisscut.

I think the reason people were having so many problems with the kisscut papers in the older posts on the forums (from 2007-ish) is that they were not using the correct pigment based inks and also not re-pressing for 60 seconds after the initial pressing to make the inks colour fast.

I hope that helps some of you guys who are looking into using this paper.
