I have been dealing LibreOffice since it came out. It use it for almost
every document and print job I do, now. So I thought I would share this
since this expands the self-printed options. I just want to let people
know you can do it now.
I found WATERPROOF inkjet paper.
Never thought I would see that.[I also found paper with a warranty of 2
Now users of LibreOffice can self-print their own signs without the need
to give printing companies your file and hope they get it right. I
cannot afford to wait like that anymore. You can do it on your
"standard" inkjet printers. I have a Canon photo printer, and a HP wide
format printer for sheet sizes up to 13x19 inches. I no longer have to
reprint the stuff that gets sprinkled on or spilled on. I found paper
from 4x6 inch to 13x19 inch sizes, from several brands and styles.
Now if you want to find a brand of waterproof photo paper [glossy,
luster, satin] just go to Amazon, or other big site, and use "waterproof
photo paper" as the keyword search. I bought a letter size "Satin"
finish style. It cost me under 30¢ USD per sheet, where the glossy
name-brand photo paper a little over 20¢ per sheet.
I have tested out one company's paper version and did that today. I
forgot I had it on my shelf for over a month. I printed a beautiful
60's "Woodstock" style artwork and after a little bit, I sprayed it with
a lot of water. No running or bleeding, unlike other paper prints did
when I did not know the table was a little "damp". I cannot tell you how
prints I had to reprint because it got "watered".
SO all you people who do some printing work for yourself, friends,
family, or a non-profit group [like I do] now you do not need to send
them to a printing company [or photo counter at a drug store] to get the
prints that will not need to be reprinted if it gets damp. I know a few
people and groups that would like that. Some I just charge the cost of
What would your boss would think of if you gave him/her a graphical
report printed on waterproof paper. I do not have a boss anymore, but I
know some of the printing of signs for outside events that would be
prefer waterproof sheets. I will be buying 11x17 inch gloss paper the
next time I buy paper. I print a lot of these size signs and posters.
