Just to remind everyone about the Sticker Paper - for Cut-Out Patterns

I Swear By this ! - Just Ordered (3) more Boxes yesterday.


I use them On REAL Kins, and had nothing but great results.

Doh has used them on Foam Kins with also Great Results.

if you do decide to give it a try, buy the ones I recommended.
Their Cheaper, and they will not Pull the paint off the Gemmey. (says Doh)
Who has used them on Foam Kins.

Yup..I have had not problems with paint peels on the new Gemmys. I even did a shaded pattern with this cheaper sticker. Every once in a while some sticker residue would peel from the paper and stay on the kin. I would just use isoprophyl alcohol to remove it.

LOVE THE STICKERS!

Just to save everyone the trouble of finding the Link.

These are Good for Laser And Ink Jet Printers.
Never Had one Jam the Printer either.

Are there any issues applying the sticker paper smoothly. With glue I can work the pattern on the pumpkin until all the wrinkles are gone.

I am definitely going to try the sticker paper but I picture once the sticker paper is placed, you would need to keep pulling it up in different spots to get it just right. Especially with a detailed pattern.

The sticker paper really sounds good. Looking forward to trying it.

I found a pack of 10 of the Avery brand at Wal-mart tonite for $4.44. Which is perfect for me, cos I probably won't be carving any more than that this year. Just thought I'd share for anyone else out there that might be doing a smaller quantity. ;p

Did realize something last night when I used the Avery sticker paper on a small foam - do NOT use the "repositionable" type sticker paper. I think my spit sticks better than that stuff. Had to tape it on just as I would have regular paper. :roll:

Yep that's not what to use.

Might be a little late - But these work Great and Cheap:
100 for 11.50 + Shipping

I normally buy like 3 boxes to save on shipping.

I'm also on the Hunt for Lower Pound Paper.

Most Printer/Copy/Multipurpose Paper = 20 Lb

Would be nice to find a thinner paper that "DONT" get Jammed in the Printer.

the thinner the paper - the easier it would be to wrap around a kin, for transferring with Transfer Paper.

Onion skin paper is like 8 lb But think it would JAM.

So a 18 lb or 16 lb would be Great.

Yeah, will definitely order for next year. But, since I didn't order early enough, found that Staples had the best deal on store-brand sticker paper so I got a pack of those. Livin' and learnin'!
