I have had good experience with waxed Masa-great for marbling(suminagashi)
and does well with ink-jet printing. Either side will take the contrast, and
the waxed side may be a bit sharper. Not however the same printed image as
with true dedicated inkjet paper. It seems strong and forgiving. Sounds
like the price is right too!

Good Luck.
