Paper remains a hidden cost of the inexpensive (less than $100) inkjet printer. If you ever try printing graphics or photographs on regular paper using one of these printers, you'll notice that you get terrible results. Using specialized inkjet paper with the proper absorbency for that technology makes your printouts look much better.
Unfortunately, inkjet paper is much more expensive than regular paper--as much as 10 cents a sheet for so-called premium-quality inkjet paper. And you'll spend even more than that for photo-quality inkjet paper. Keep these costs in mind when you consider buying a new inkjet printer.
