I’m frequently asked about Prism papers so I thought I would put all the information in one place. I’ll add questions and answers after the basic information on the papers. I was a customer for a long time before being on the team for Prism (woo hoo!) and it is a product I truly enjoy.
This info (and other questions that come in) with be at the top of my blog for future reference. I will be adding additional sections for the other Prism products as I use them.
Prism Simply Smooth and Simply Ivory – 80lb cover weight
My choice for work with Copics, colored pencils, stamping inks, ink jet printing.
Prism Prismatics Prismatics – 70lb cover weight
My favorite colored cardstock. 113 colors with a slight eggshell texture on one side and smooth on the other side make it a perfect paper for paper crafters. With the large variety of beautiful colors I can match any color of ink, marker or even patterned paper.
Question – How did you discover Prism paper?
When I was on the Splitcoast Dirty Dozen Design Team a couple years ago I was thrilled to receive a big box from Prism. I think I was hooked before I even used it. The colors were so rich and the texture was just plain yummy.
Question – Why do you like Prism Prismatics better than other cardstocks?
For me it’s the color range, weight (not too bulky so it cuts with scissors easily, yet it’s firm for a card back) and the texture which I love for sponging.
Question – Can you stamp on Prismatics papers?
You sure can! I do it all the time.
Question – Do I need Simply Smooth if I have Prismatics White?
Yes and no. If you want a nice crisp image and easy Copic marker blending I would go with Simply Smooth. I have used Prismatics White (before Simply Smooth came out) and it can be done, but the results are better with Simply Smooth.
