    If you're doing a pep build.....card stock. Regular paper will not hold up to a resin coating.....it will collapse under it's own weight.

    print on the card stock.
    it eliminates an extra step of printing on normal paper first.

    Not all printers can handle all thicknesses of paper. If you having trouble printing onto cardstock you may need to find a friend's printer to try.

    I would personally recommend the heaviest cardstock you can get as it helps for when you start applying resin and then fiberglass. It goes by lbs and anything over 110lb should be alright, but as they said be sure your printer can handle it.
