2. An alternative: Inkjet printers are a better bet for overheads
because they're far less expensive and let you use color. (And I don't
believe that you need special "paper".)

Yes, you do. Ink-jet printers need transparencies which have tiny groves in them
to collect the ink. Otherwise the ink just runs off the film. Also, some ink-jet
printed transparencies tend to fade rapidly over time.

Thermal-wax printers have a tendency to flake over time, and are darker than
ink-jet printed transparencies. (The wax is denser than the ink, so absorbs more

Dye-sublimation printers (at least the one we have) print lighter than ink-jet
and look a little washed-out.
