Hi all,  I though I would share a tip a mate gave me.  I have been playing
around with toner transfer to make pcb's using all sorts of paper with
varying degrees of luck.

I was put on to the office works 150gsm ink jet matte photo paper.  This
stuff works a treat, you don't even need to use water. I just sit the iron
on top, with a sheet or two of normal paper in-between the iron the photo
paper, (I don't bother moving it as my board is fairly small) for 2 minutes
on full heat.  After that remove the iron and allow to cool, after the board
is cool just carefully peel the paper off.

The office works paper sells for about $15 for 30 sheets.  Don't get the
glossy as it screws up the laser printer (even the indestructible work one
;) )

Hope this is of some use.
