    I have an HP Photosmart All-in-one C3180

    What I want to do is print a photo on the normal glossy side of an 8.5 by11 inch piece of card stock weight photo paper
    and then also print some text on the other non glossy side. This would require putting in the paper a second time to print on the back.

    But somebody warned me that the other side of that paper that is not glossy is not designed to be printed on at all and the ink will smear. They said they tried doing it and that's what happened.

    I was in Staples the other day and I didn't see any paper that was heavy weight (or any weight type) glossy photo paper that said on the package that you could print on the other side.

    Is there any paper you know of that is thick card stock that could do this?
