i960 Canon printer...what other brands can I use for photos

Just curious because Costco sells other photo paper here but not the canon
brand.
I think they sell the Kodak and Epson photo paper there.

TIA

I use Epson papers with my i960 with great success.  My favorite among the
Epson varieties is ColorLife.  I am partial to semi gloss or lustre papers. 
YMMV

I use Epson from Costco and have very nice results with my i960. I use the
highest paper quality setting.

The Costco Epson glossy prints great on the 960 using the Canon Photopaper
Plus Glossy setting.

Thanks guys.

With the ink from Atlantic inkjets coming and the paper from Costco, it will
really make for low cost photos!!!

That's the way to do it. I print my photos for less than any photo lab
can print them, and I don't have to wait. :)

I was just comparing a set of 4x6s I got done at Costco, I wanted 3 sets and
only got 2, no problem they printed another set for me from the negs.  What
a difference in the 2 different sets of the same pictures.  Colors were
totally different.

On top of that 75% of the pictures are not album quality and will sit in my
tote boxes.  Got people blinking, too far away, shaded faces, blurred,
turned heads, etc etc.

With the digital, if the pic is too bad and I know I don't want it I can
delete it right away.  Then when I download to computer I can pic and choose
what I want to print and can fool around with what the output is going to
look like.

So to get back to my original point. I printed some of my first pictures and
was blown away.  They look way better than what comes out of the Costco
"lab".  In the future I plan that when relatives come over they can pic and
choose pictures and I can send them home with some.  Family gatherings, take
pictures and send them home with some too.  The other day my daughter had a
birthday party.  Took a bunch of pictures and printed of a set of the best
pics for each kid and sent them home with them.

This technology is too cool!
