Smooth or textured? Glossy or matte?

I bought a printer a few weeks ago. After dealing with a manufacturer defect and having to send the poor thing back, I finally received one that works! I've been making test prints and it's exciting! I'm going to be experimenting with different paper textures this week. I'm already realizing I need a finer texture for my watercolor prints because the textured paper is making the image less sharp. I've only tried Epson brand paper so far but will soon venture out and explore. Paper is so awesome.
