Papers

What you print on makes almost as much difference as how you do the printing. You can get various types and weights of paper for all kinds of printers. There are special papers for ink jet and for laser. If you want your picture to resemble a photograph, consider investing in a pack of "photo weight" glossy paper. It's a much thicker paper with a glossy surface that really does help make your inkjet or laser printed picture look like something that came out of a real darkroom rather than a digital picture.

You can get coated papers for printing color on inkjet printers. These give you photo quality prints with a matte surface, rather than the glossy one just mentioned. Transparency paper is clear acetate film, specially treated to accept the inks. Use it to make overhead projection slides and overlays.
