For photos used in albums or frames we recommend paper of mid-level quality. For special occasions or professional photos use our premium-paper with highest grammage.
A: Special paper for the two different printer technologies has been developed and optimized separately for their respective requirements. Special paper guarantees excellent results and is indispensable for all high-quality, discerning printouts - those with a high picture content in particular. It is also advisable to use special paper for smooth, jam-free printing that is gentle on your printer.

A: All inkjet papers and inkjet photo papers from europe100 are instantly dry and smudge-free when being taken out of the printer, that means the colour is embedded immediately into the coating. But the water contained in the ink is first absorbed by the paper and then evaporates. Depending on ink composition, paper and general conditions like temperature and humidity you should wait a few hours before using the paper in a photo album, picture frame or transparent sleeve.

A: Please refer to the manual of the printer. Select 'cardboard', 'thick paper' or 'labels' from the printer menu; with some printers it is not sufficient to change the setting on the driver, but the settings on the printer itself needs to changed. Always feed the paper via the single sheet feed.
A: The adhesive used on white laser labels is an acrylic based permanent adhesive. This kind of adhesive is for general purpose adhesion to most of papers, envelopes, postal packaging, lever arch files, untreated and varnished metals, polypropylene- and polyethylene sleeves.
A: europe100 recommends running a label sheet only once through a laser or inkjet printer. The heat and tight paper path of a laser printer can cause the label to curl after multiple passes through the printer. This could cause the label to jam or peel off inside the printer and result in an expensive repair bill.
A: This can vary greatly depending on environmental conditions (heat, humidity, etc...) but usually 2-3 years. However, if a person's definition of "shelf life" is really "life span," Laser & Inkjet labels have a life span of 10 -15 years.
A: Please check the setting of the driver. For labels and thick paper you should select 'cardboard', 'thick paper' or 'labels' or similar from the menu.
