Photo paper for printers is universal, right?

Somehow, I am convinced since these things are all branded, they work only certain kinds of printers. Ugh.

most printers use the same paper, very rare printers, like one's with special purposes, use special paper.

I have a Dell 926 all in one. Any kind of paper should be fine?

well, different paper will give you different results, but the brand shouldn't matter.

I want photo paper, actually. White paper I can just jack from anywhere. So I suppose any kind of photo paper is okay then?

paper is paper. If it is photo paper, and is the right size, then the brand won't matter, unless they are the only one's who make it in the right size....though I doubt that.

When in doubt, try it out. ideally you bought a common printer so you can practise it on someone else's printer, but whatever.

buy a pack of paper for every brand, print out a sheet on each type, then tell us the results.

I think most photo paper can be used for universal printers. Although there are some special brands that can only be used in specific printers that function for just printing off photos.
