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)

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!

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'!
