the Avery matte note cards have a nice surface and feel
on August 29, 2014
As others have noted, the Avery matte note cards have a nice surface and feel. That said, two things you need to be aware of. First, the thickness of the cards is such that the typical desktop Epson, HP and Canon printers, even the so called Pro versions, will often have a difficult time reliably feeding the cards. I've found that clicking on print with the hope of walking away and letting the printer spit 15-20 cards won't happen without at least a couple of interventions to manually assist feeds or hit the resume button on the printer (a Canon Pro-100 in my case).
The second issue is Amazon packaging. I've had multiple shipments where the Avery packs have been packed tightly in a carton that invariably gets dropped on the corners during shipment and the shock transmits through to the Avery cards, wrinkling the corners, resulting in damaged appearance, and a card that won't feed through the printer without the printhead hitting the wrinkled area, leaving ink marks. WELL-PACKED is often not part of the shipping crews lexicon at Amazon! Five stars for the product, three stars for Amazon packaging--at best.
