From the Monitor to Paper

Sorry if this has been asked elsewhere but after looking around the Photo-Based Art area for a while I've come up with one major question. How many of you actually print out your work? Or are the majority of people showcasing their work on the internet?

Are there certain kinds of printers or paper that are recommended for this type of media? The images look beautiful on my monitor. Can they look as good on paper??

I print quite a bit of my work. And I use (ahem) a humble HP 932 inkjet for most of it. For the really special stuff, and for gifts, or family, I use an Epson 2200. Of course resizing the images to decent print quality is one of the first things I do when I work on a custom piece. One can't discount that.
