I scanned the templates at 600dpi. Ideally you want to work with them and any images you add at 600dpi. But unless you've got like a uber digi cam, your photos will probaly be closer to 300dpi - that's ok use them, but scale them up to the 600dpi used by the template.

It's harder to notice 'jaggies' in a photo, than it will be in the hard - high contrast lines and text on the template.

Print out at 600dpi, on quality paper, I found high gloss to be annoying, so use a low gloss instead.

I (persoanlly) don't like the gloss (I tried a Kodak high gloss paper), but try it you may be ok with it.

In short any paper will work (to varying degrees).
