I also use the microcapsule paper with a PIAF and I run through my copy machine at work. I have a Canon WorkCentre copier/scanner/printer. I have found that when using the microcapsule paper, I have to adjust the paper weight in order for the image to copy without smearing or leaving an imprint on the copier drum. I also used a Xerox copier (before the school district changed to Canon) and the Xerox was a dream! I have not tried to run microcapsule paper through my Epson printer of the HP OfficeJet Pro so am not sure how they would work.
