Thanks everyone!

There are a few reasons why I don't test them on cardstock, the main one being I haven't figured out how to compensate for the thickness of the paper anyway. How do you guys & girls do it?

That's also why I want to try a lighter paper, since this model is fairly small and 110lb might be too much. I'm hoping the gloss cover will be a little bit shinier and/or brighter than the standard 110# white index DigiCopy uses.

Steve, thanks for the heads up! I'll be extra careful trying that out. There was a thread about sealing laser-printed models where some people had a problem with the toner flaking. I've had that happen a very little bit on mine, but not enough switch to inkjet. Maybe I've just been lucky, but it seems like if you're very careful bending the paper, and keep a little pressure on both sides of it, it will be okay. If that doesn't work usually a marker will cover it. In my opinion, the glossy finish of a laser printer is well worth it, especially for shiny things like cars
