Only printing on photo paper?

I have the Canon Series MG7520 Printer, and it was working great until a few weeks ago. I use google docs very often, and I need to be able to print these documents out. Recently though, everything I try to print automatically prints on photo paper. I have the settings of my google doc set to letter paper, so why does this keeping happening and how do I fix it? PDFs also print on the photo paper.
