Digital Scrapbooking

I am thinking about starting digital scrapbooking and want to make one for my son's high school years. I got a program, but it doesn't say what type of paper I need to print my pages on so that they will last. Can someone give me some insight on how to start this project, and what supplies I will need? Should I order the pages offline, or print at home, etc.?

Hi, I previously have worked for Archivers (scrapbooking and papercraft store). You should be able to purchase "archival" quality paper and use it to print at home. Archival quality paper is guaranteed to last 100 years.

You could check Michael's, JoAnn's or Hobby Lobby for this specific paper. Hope this helps.

Digital Scrapbooking

I have 4 grown sons and a gazillion unfinished projects I knew I would never make the scrapbooks I wanted to for them. So, I made them on the computer, printed the pages and put them in sheet protectors and in a binder for each. I did make each an individual page for the cover of the binder and some of the pages get customized. This way I can also share the pages by e-mail with the rest of the family. (01/27/2008)
