    | I'm not sure if this is a really dumb question or not...
    | But...
    | Will a laser jet printer printer print onto Kodak Ultima Photo Paper..?
    | Kodak Ultima Photo Paper claims 'works on all inkjet printers' but doesn't
    | say it doesn't work on laser jet printers..

    It won't work right. Laser printers use heat to fix dry black or coloured toner (find
    carbon powder) to paper. Glossy and Matte paper designed for InkJets don't like the heat of
    the fixing process and won't set/adhere properly. You should always match the paper to the
    printer. Laser/copier paper for laser printers, inkjet paper for InkJet Printers.

    Don't try it! The fuser in a laser printer heats the paper very hot. It is
    very likely to melt the coating on photo paper and mess up your printer in
    the process.
