    I don't want dotted perforations going around each card. Non-glossy with clean edges that don't LOOK home-made. (Printable on both sides.)

    Am I dreaming?

    (I use an Epson C86. Software templates I don't care about--I can make my own if needed.)

    Exciting topic, huh? :)

    Thanks.

    I wonder if there are any clean-looking cards that don't use a peel-off backing sheet like those do? (I want to print both sides.)

    My X-Acto knife is smirking at me. It knows I'm going to have to do this by hand...

    hmmm, there's no peel-off backing on the ones that i have. once they've been printed, you just snap them apart - no peeling needed. which ones were you looking at that had a peel-off backing?

    Cool!

    I was looking at the 8871. On the Avery site they say "print your cards, peel away from the backing" or something like that.

    Just an error on their site I guess. Maybe some other Avery product works that way. Thanks for the info!

    Oops. Word to the cheap: the OfficeMac Clean Cut clone is not the same. It does have a peel-off backing still.

    You get what you pay for I guess... luckily I can still exchange for the Avery.
