Custom Paper

Customer provided paper is considered experimental. As such, customer provided paper is at your own expense. We allow customer provided stock of any type that meets manufactures specifications. Customers are encouraged to become familiar with the various paper options available to them through the the Duck Store, as paper quality, properties and color can have enormous impact on the finished product. All customer provided paper is at your own expense. With the wide variety of media types it is impossible for us to know how alternative media might perform or what changes in work flow might be required. Therefore, you should be prepared for any additional printing cost that may be required to produce the desired result
