Default Paper...

Is paper for dye-sub printers any different than normal photo paper?

Thanks.

Dye sub paper is specifically made for the dye diffusion thermal transfer process. The dyes are transferred by heat to the paper, an inkjet simply sprays ink on the paper. This is why you get both the paper and ribbon when you buy a refill kit for a dye sub.
