I tried photopaper and it was horrible. It got that plastic covering that melted itself to the enclosure and was a pain to get off. But i guess there are various types

My recent success was with regular glossy paper. Don't know the brand.
Cody's (selfdestroyer) tutorial names a specific one. I've also seen people use magazine paper

I've used HP Glossy Presentation paper with good success.
Plus its about 1/3 the price of photo paper.

I've tried magazine paper.
The thing I didn't like about that was I couldn't see the trace very well on the paper with all the print on it.

Photo paper didn't work for me.

Glossy presentation paper does.
