    OK all, I haven't even set up my new printer (A Canon PIXMA Pro 9000 mk II with a big juicy rebate) and am wondering if you home printers can recommend any specific papers you like to use. The selection is overwhelming and I understand that different papers can create very different looks.

    Any other auxilliary information that you wish to share with a printing n00b is of course welcome and appreciated.

    The noob recommendation is to stick with the manufacturer's own papers since profiles are built in. I have an Epson printer and only use Epson papers. I use their best papers most of the time and they work for me, so I don't have a strong inclination to move beyond that. I assume that Canon has their own papers?
