If your are going to be using your Canon I960 with the Kodak paper, you will be very dissapointed. Canon inks and Kodak papers don't like each other, at least when I tried them. The images were very blotchy, the ink would not dry, the images were discolored, and look horrible. Ilford papers are ok, but not the best for me. The Ilford papers took forever to dry, some discoloring, minor pixelation, and ink smear.

I found that the Pictorico Photo Gallery Glossy Paper gave me the best prints, way better than the Canon Pro paper. Red River papers are good too, and are equal or just better than the Canon Pro paper. For matte, I like the Epson Enhanced Matte paper, makes nice prints too. Here are the links for Pictorico and Red River papers. Red River has a sample pack that you can try. These papers appeared to dry quickly, correct colors, and sharp images.

Hope this helps you out.
