FWIW I just tried printing a model's comp card on Epson Semi-gloss paper.
I'm using an Epson 1160 with OEM inks. I'd have to say it's the best result
I think I've seen out of the 1160 so far.
Obscanning: All but one of the photos were scanned on my LS30. The odd one
out was scanned on an Epson Filmscan 200.
