Two sided semi-gloss paper that is good for laser printers? (around 80lb)

My client wants to move away from using matt paper to semi gloss somewhere around 80lb. Right now I have some one sided glossy paper that works with my laser printer. I used to have several good PaperZone stores around me but now that they all closed it can be hard to find a specific kind of paper. We usually do jobs in small batches (maybe a couple hundred copies per job) so going to a major paper distributor is usually overkill (like Westcoast Paper or Spicers.) This will be printing on a HP 4700.

    I think you'll probably find something with Hammermill, Xerox, HP or Epson branding. You don't mention the size, nor if you mean 80 lb text or cover. I'd look online at Staples for starters.

    There is some Xerox on Amazon. Second hit when I googled it.

    Take care, Mike

    I think that's available in a semi-gloss or satin, as well...

    Is another source and says it is coated on both sides. I didn't really read the blurb on Amazon, it was just the lowest price at a couple places I looked.

     

    Take care, Mike

    Does such a astock exist for ink-jet printers? I'm loving my new Brother MFC-J6710DW, which prints duplex up to 11 x17" Would love to have double coated matte or gloss paper for it. Anyone know?

    And apparently I gave you the wrong link. That stuff is available as 80# cover. I think I saw it on Amazon, too.

    Does you printer have settings for thick and glossy stock? That Xerox paper is pretty slick, as I recall, and might be slipping if it runs too fast (not to mention the toner may not fuse properly).

    I should have looked at your printer's thickest stock capaibility. I simply assumed...From HP's web site:

     

    Glossy paper (letter/A4, legal, executive, JIS B5, A5)

    NOTE:      Do not use inkjet papers in this printer.

    Range:

     

    76 x 127 mm (3 x 5 in) to 216 x 356 mm (8.5 x 14 in)     Range:

     

    75 g/m2 (20 lb) bond to 220 g/m2 (60 lb) bond     Maximum stack height: 10 mm (0.6 in)

    Range:

     

    60 g/m2 (16 lb) bond to 220 g/m2 (60 lb) bond

     

    Many apologies from my part.

     

    Mike

    Yes, it does have setting for thick and glossy which I set before printing. I wonder why it only happens at the very top of the page and not below? I noticed the paper seemed to be going though the printer a lot slower then it does with other paper. What kind of printer did you try this paper on?

    I suspect the registration problem is due to the knockout. You jdut don't see it in the are below because you have solid color there.

     

    The last time I personally ran the Xerox stock was in about 2001 on a Documcolor 12 where I was working. I've seen it run OK on a Minolta BizHub more recently, but I haven't tried it in my own printer.

    Seems unlikely to me. Toner cartridges have no contact whatever with the paper.
