Paper for targets

Post by Paper-Puncher on Sat Oct 20, 2012 12:22 am

Got a question....I can print my own targets at work for free as long as I supply the paper.....Ive been useing just plain old priter paper for awhile...and it works great for the .22 and the .38 but the .45 not so well.....so my solution has been just to shoot 5 shoots at each target when useing the .45 ..makes for easier scoring but still not great.....can I buy target paper to print targets on ????if so where???

go to officemax/depot and buy paper that says it works in a lazer printer but pick stuff with the highest weight rating that will still print. The neat thing about this is the round going through knocks off some of the toner, and it leaves a thing ring of white where the round went through. Makes it easy to see where your shots hit.

I found the cardboard backing makes a lot of difference, too. The ideal is to paste the target onto cardboard but any backing is much better than none.

the bright white paper for copy machines will strain your eyeballs. Off white, while more expensive, is the proper color to use.

see if you can find cheap "construction" paper from kids education stores or stationory scores. Basically cheap tear-able paper.

For practice, get news print in a roll. cut right size black discs and tape on. Don't make scoring rings. Go for hitting the black with groups. Ever getting smaller groups.....

Why bother to print when you can get the real thing for 11 cents each?

American Target in Colorado is a family owned and run business. They are great to deal with and very price competitive. Repair centers for 25yd and 50 yd and 50' targets are $.075 each/500 count and $.067 each/1000 count in tag board and $.0455 each/500 count and $.0405/100 count in paper. Additional discounts on orders over 5000 and it always has been no shipping charge if shipped to a business address. Their web address is:

I have ordered from them for our club and for myself for years.

Printing your own is certainly cheapest, but if you want clean, visible holes, try Kruger targets:

Our club orders from them as well. Don't know the prices, but we sell them at cost to members for 12/$1.00. However, if I remember correctly, our President said the last order they had to start charging shipping. They didn't raise prices, just quit giving the free shipping.

I've had good luck getting clean holes printing targets on normal 8.5" x 11" card stock from Office Depot.
