Is there some kind of tough paper I can use to print out business cards that will go in a normal printer?

 Smiley  Hello
I use card stock.  you can buy it at staples or office depot for a pretty cheap price.  and you can get it in all kinds of colors.  also you can get free business cards on vistaprint.com  they have some logo stuff on the back, but for the price you cant beat it:)  good luck

A lot of printers won't feed "tough" paper - that's why the business card forms you get at places like Office Depot are on the flimsy side, so wussy home printers will print on them.

Also chances are that "tough" paper isn't that great to print on, and can develop a little color bleed and there's a lack of vibrancy.

Buying good card stock will cost you as much or more than getting a stack of cards professionally printed these days.
