Apparently the best way is to steal a fuser out of a broken LJ2 or LJ3, wire
up a temperature controller and use that to melt the toner onto the copper.

I've been using Staples inkjet photo paper, but it seems they've switched
suppliers and the new stuff doesn't work for TT at all. It didn't even work
properly when I used it with the inkjet to print some photos off - the ink
just smeared straight off (even after half an hour drying in a warm room).
