I am looking to make my invites with Stardream Metallic paper. Has anyone ordered the text weight? Is it sparkly like the coverweight is? Can you use inkjet for the text weight? ( I know you can't with the coverweight metallic). I am at a loss as to which to buy for the layers. Anyone have a better metallic paper? Sorry so many questions. Thanks.

We only used our metallic text weight for backing, but I'm thinking it would be the same as cover weight as far as the printer goes. I've heard you can use a laser printer on it tho, and also heard that if you need new ink anyways it's cheaper to just buy a new printer? Maybe this will help you.

I ordered text weight. It is sparkly and much easier to print than cardstock (which constantly jammed my printer). However, it is very flimsy so we are backing it with cardstock.

FYI, if you are ordering paper (cardstock or text weight) order it all at once. I ordered the brown stardeam cardstock via paperandmore (which is fast by the way) however never paid attention that the colors differed when I ordered the second time. It really is not that big of a deal, but I was bummed since I really liked the shade of brown on the second order but had already cut 100 sheets from the first orders for my backing.
