    I'm located in New Jersey. I was speaking about the most common types of paper and weight. Like 80lb or 14pt card stock.

    Where are you located?

    There are so many different types and weights of paper there is no real answer to this question.

    As a designer, it is your job to know what papers to use...

    I took a look, it wasn't extremely slow to load, but it wasn't quick either. This is probably one of the oddest websites I have been to, I don't really care for the use of a lightbox to display each section,...

    The attach image thingy is borked. So what I do is upload my image to a photo hosting site like photobucket - then I paste the IMG tag/link directly into the body of my post.

      Do you mean how to do the designs in the slip used to color the face of the tile when it is fired? Or print them.

      Printing can be done as a dye-sub process or as a UV flatbed process.

      HOWEVER
      There are certain wearability and food safety issues you need to know about.
      -Dye sub or printed tiles should not be used outdoors. There have been too many reports of almost immediate fading and no cases of tiles lasting much more than 5 years without significant fading.
      -They can't be used for flooring or high traffic areas like hallway walls.
      -Cleansers that can scratch the surface are bad for printed tiles.
      -Exposure to heat and grease aren't good for them either.
      -Some inks may contain chemicals you don't want to have in contact with food.

      Dye sub is more common. UV flatbed is more of a short term usage.
