PRINTING & CUTTING MACHINES


CANON TS9521C INKJET

We love this printer! Almost everything project you see on the YayDay Paper co. site and Instagram has been created with this printer. It was designed for crafters! 

What we love: 

  • Prints borderless: 12×12
  • Prints up to 11×17
  • Accepts a wide variety of thick material including the Red River 96lb. Photo Gloss Cardstock – the thickest glossy cardstock on the market!
  • 5-Color Individual Ink Tank System so you get vibrant prints and since the ink doesn’t run out all at once you just replace the ink tank that runs out. 

What we don’t love:

  • If you print a lot of YayDay Paper Co. prints, Genuine Canon Ink can get pricey.
  • The printer is fairly large, so it may not work in tiny spaces

CANON TS8320 INKJET

Even though this printer can’t print 12×12” borderless, it can do everything else! 

What we love: 

  • 6 -Color Individual Ink Tank System so you get vibrant prints and since the ink doesn’t run out all at once you just replace the ink tank that runs out. 
  • Rear tray allows for printing on thicker materials including the Red River 96lb. Photo Gloss Cardstock – the thickest glossy cardstock on the market!
  • Available in three colors

What we don’t love:

  • If you print a lot of YayDay Paper Co. prints, Genuine Canon Ink can get pricey.

HP 7155 INKJET

HP Instant Ink is a huge help with the cost of ink! With this HP printer you can save on ink while still enjoying all your favorite YayDay Paper Co. prints.

What we love: 

  • Borderless A5 printing! This is the only printer on our recommendation list that offers borderless A5 printing which is awesome for planner lovers!
  • This printer is an HP Instant Ink printer which means you can get ink whenver you need for a low monthly subscription price.
  • This printer allows you to print on most printable materials. Check out our comparison chart to see what it can and can’t do.

What we don’t love: 

  • At less than $100, this is a fairly affordable printer.
  • Printing was slightly streaky and pixelated on some printable materials but not terribly noticeable from a distance. Also, when using the “Best” setting for Print Quality, the final project was very bright and clear.

HP 3755 COMPACT INKJET

Not every project requires ultra-professional prints. Party favors, planner stickers, to-do lists,  quick gift tags and last minute greeting cards are perfect for this compact printer.

What we love:

  • Compact size and lightweight makes this great for small space living
  • This printer is an HP Instant Ink printer which means you’ll receive ink when you need for a low monthly subscription price.
  • This printer allows you to print on most printable materials. Check out our comparison chart to see what it can and can’t do.
  • This printer is very affordable.

What we don’t love: 

  • Setup for this printer was a little frustrating but after using the desktop setup, we were successful.
  • No borderless printing
  • Printing was slightly streaky and pixelated on some prints but not terribly noticeable from a distance.
  • We’ve gotten some feedback from YayDay subscribers that this printer stopped working after some time. We have not had this experience but will report back if we do.

Cricut Explore Air 2/Cricut Maker

The Ultimate cutting machine that crafters love! If you love your Cricut get ready to create even more beautiful things with it!

What we love:

  • Print your favorite YayDay patterned paper onto printable vinyl and iron-on, then use your Cricut to cut it out! Now you’ve created your very own patterned vinyl and iron-on! 
  • Print your favorite YayDay patterned paper onto printable fabric then use the Cricut Maker Rotary blade to cut out your fabric project.
  • The Print then Cut feature on the Cricut Explore Air and Cricut Maker means you allows you to cut out your YayDay stickers easily!

What we don’t love:

  • The Print Then Cut feature for Cricut isn’t as robust as we’d like.

Silhouette Portrait

When it comes to printing and cutting the Silhouette Portait is our hands-down fave!

What we love:

  • The Silhouette Studio software offers lots of options for customizing your cuts
  • The AutoBlade tool in the Silhouette Portrait is able to self-adjust in the middle of a project which is amazing for making sticker sheets
  • The compact size is amazing for small spaces!

What we don’t love: 

  • Silhouette Design Studio takes some practice to get comfortable. Luckily, we have videos covering the basics. 
  • The Silhouette Portrait is pretty loud when it cuts, so don’t start cutting while you’re on a business call!

PAPER


Photo Matte Paper

Great for printing pattern papers, greeting cards, craft projects. Vibrant colors every time!

12×12 Photo Matte Double Sided

 Create your own double-sided patterned papers! This paper is made to work with the Canon TS9521C printer.

Hammermill Printer Paper

Great for planner prints! This lightweight paper is smooth and great to write on. It works great with our to-do list prints and other prints you’ll be putting in your planner. It’s thick enough to avoid bleed-through when you write on it.

Red River Polar White 88lb

The heaviest matte photo stock on  the market. Makes amazing cards that look professional. This stock is VERY thick and may not work with your printer. We’ve had success using this stock with both recommended Canon printers.

Red River Polar White 60lb

Lighter-weight than that 88lb cardstock. Smooth and great for greeting cards.

Red River 32lb Glossy

Perfect for making professional looking treat bags! The paper is lightweight but the glossy finish gives a great professional look.

Pre-Cut A5 Paper

If you have an A5 planner you can print directly on this A5 paper for your planner inserts! All of our recommended printers will print on A5 paper. Only the HP Photo Envy 7155 will print borderless A5.
