What is hagaki paper?

Bought a new printer. One of the paper settings is Hagaki. What is
this paper? What does it look like?

Also, I have some paper that is (intentionally) not smooth. I think
it may be called parchment paper, but I'm not sure about that. My new
printer doesn't have this paper type option, but it has many others.
Anyone recommend a paper setting for this type of paper?

Thanks a lot, regards, dnw.

Hi!

I've seen the terms "Hagaki" and "Japanese Postcard" used interchangeably,
so I'd guess that it is some kind of a postcard.

Sorry I don't know what Hagaki is but I can advise that paper with heavy
embossing can be difficult to use with laser printers, and to a lesser extent
with inkjets.
With a laser you need to select heavy card or transparency, if it works that's
fine but the toner may not correctly fuse in the troughs in the paper. If the
paper is coated you should not use it in a laser unless the packet says that it
is for laser printers otherwise you may (probably will) end up with fuser
damage.
With an inkjet you can just try to see if it works.

Don't know about it being a type of paper but it is a paper size.
It is 5.3" x 3.94".

Hagaki is a postcard with the size specified by Japan post. Normally, a
stamp and five rectangles with red line for post code area are already
printed on front side; the back of the card is blank. Stock varies from
about 180g/m² to 250g/m². The size is about 134mm X 100mm. There is fixed
postage rate for 'Hagaki size' so if you use this size postcard you can
send a message on it at the cheapest price to anywhere in Japan.

Interestingly, the kanji characters for 'Hagaki' mean 'a leaf with a
message written on it'.
