Great job! I already "invested" in some inserts (found them at a discount, though), but I may retire them for your format instead. Now, if I can only find that water resistant paper...
Thanks for the link ^^^
Now I just have to find waterproof ink for my printer...
The site says the paper has excellent ink absorbtion. I have to think that if the paper is weatherproof and it is designed for ink jet printers, that it takes into account the normal properties of ink jet ink when wet.
I just did some research concerning wp printing paper for some boat related issues. The ink-jet paper stated "some bleeding of the ink may occur if the paper gets wet".
So in a nutshell the paper is waterproof, but the ink will not retain if it gets wet.
However the laser paper I looked at did not carry the same label. We have been using laser printing on the boat (non-wp paper) for a number of years with pretty good results other then the paper wrinkling when it gets damp. We are going to try the wp laser paper. It retails for about 45 cents a sheet.
Write In The Rain is probably on the high end of cost.
I have firsthand experience here. When I was new to diving I made my family a pre-dive checklist/briefing card on waterproof paper that we had made on an inkjet printer at a copy shop. It is still buried somewhere in my dive stuff as legible as the day it was printed.
