The full printing looks best printed on photo glossy or matte paper. It gives the best quality and weight.
8.5 x 11 JPEG format at 300 dpi.
Paper of choice is Dollar Tree photo paper. I know CRAZY but it prints glossy and has a nice weight to it and it is 8 for a 1.00 Can't beat that!!
My other paper of choice is Kodak gloss paper. It prints perfect. Not  glossy, but with the perfect amount of shine for crystal clear images...They also have the perfect amount of thickness for a nice professional looking print. 
These can also be printed at your local printing center that prints on full sheets such as
