Need quality adhesive backed printable paper

I am making a present for my grandson: I have a presentation book with 20 clear polypropyline inserts that will contain letter sized photos printed on Epson Luster that I am printing with my Epson P 900. The cover is thin black plastic and I would like to attach a photo with some print that will serve as my cover for the collection. Rather than try to glue on a photo I would prefer to print onto adhesive backed paper then attach that. The only thing I can find is very cheap, 100 sheets for unter $20, so I am quessing it is not very good quality. Can anybody recommend a quality adhesive backed printable paper? 8 x10 or 8.5 x 11?

Or, if you can recommend an easy way to cleanly attach a photo onto the cover. I don’t have and am not interested in buying a dry mount press. Thanks!!

Try https://www.photopaperdirect.us This is a vinyl that comes in a variety of surfaces. You can get 50 sheets for $20. Carefully read the various applications to make sure you get one that works best on the surface of the cover.

Thanks for the reply. I saw this on my search on Amazon, and actually it is the reason I made my post. I’m pretty sure 50 sheets for $20 would not be “quality” photo paper, which is what I am looking for. Perhaps such a thing doesn’t exist, but no harm in asking…

The sheets at Photo Paper Direct and vinyl surfaced. It’s a layer of vinyl coated with a thin film designed to accept ink from printers. Granted the quality might not be that of a Hahnemühle product, but I think you would be surprised. I’ve had very large graphics, including photos, printed on vinyl and they turned out very well.

Epson has adhesive photo sheets.

They should be the quality you are looking for. In the circumstances you outline - giving a gift to your grandson - I would imagine that he would be thrilled by the gracious thought and not be considering the quality of the paper on which it is printed.

Thanks, I ordered some.
