I have a Samsung CLP 325 ~ a very capable Tri-Colour Laser Printer and am getting quite good Colour results using a regular Commercial Quality Laser Paper.

However, I wish to create a few, high quality, A4 Leaflets which will include photographic content.

Now I am aware that Laser Printers do not produce Colour in the same way as Ink-jet ones do, and that the Ink-jet Photo Paper will stick to the Laser's rollers.

So:

Has anyone any experience of a Photo Quality paper that I might use?

I have Epson c1100 Colour Laser, I tried Semi Gloss paper and it still stuck though it was Laser Paper

hssutton: The reason for the request for anyone "with experience" is that I don't believe the blurb that most advertising Agency's put out!

p.s. I have looked at and read, contributions from Amazon, Viking, eBay & Choice, but thanks anyway

I like you have the Samsung CLP325, wanting to do a small run of glossy brochures. I did like you asked around and came up with Mondi"Colour Copy Coated Glossy" for digital colour laser printing this gave a good short run single sided end product. The advice I was also given was to only do small runs then allow a cool down, but only do double sided as a single one off. Hope that is of some help. Tom
