You've opened up a can of worms here!

Epson 880, paper depends on what I'm doing...95% of the time regular photocopy paper, 3% Epson inkjet paper, the other 2% is specialty papers including photo-glossy, photo-matte, canvas, cloth, and iron-on transfer paper.

For photo printing, I mostly use Wal*Mart. When I do print at home with my old Epson 780, I use Epson paper and ink. Having trashed one printer with second party ink and using up a lot of ink trying to get things to work right with second party paper, I use the manufacturer's supplies.

If I printed a lot at home, I'd be willing to do more experimenting with paper and ink.

Epson 680, epson 600 and HP 6112 at work, cheapo glossy from photoglossy.com - works well enough.

The HP is the best.

The HiTi 630ps printer. Paper and ribbon come in prepackage 50 4X6 photo package for $20. You can read more about the printer in Steve's Printer reveiws or www.hitouchimaging.com.

I also use a HP5550 printer along with Redriver 68lb ultra gloss paper.

I use a epson stylus 1280 photo. I like the paper from digital art supplies. I use the paper from ici olmec,schollershammer , mitsubishi diamond jet.I like the paper from Tetenal the 264 prof photo gloss and the duoprint 130. The japan 90, The hanemuhle photo 120 also is great. I hope this gets to the point you are looking for. Tealblue
