Does the type of paper I use really make a difference?

    The type of paper you choose affects the way your printout looks, so be sure to select the correct paper for your print job. If you are just making a copy or printing a rough draft of an image, plain paper is fine. However, for the best results, you'll want to use one of Epson's special ink jet papers. For example, your photos will look great printed on Epson Premium Photo Paper Glossy.
