Can printing photos on photo paper damage your printer

New Contributor
Okay everyone me and my mom have been arguing on this topic forever I think its ridiculous, she thinks that the reason why every cannon printer we get breaks is because me and my daughter print photos with it on photo paper she says because its not a photo printer and its not designed to print out photos I disagree I think that makes no sense opinions please

I don't think so, but what printer (model) do you have and what paper stock are you using?  The user manual should list out all supported paper stocks.   I would imagine you'd only get into trouble if attempting to use a certain paper weight or higher; something beyond what the printer can handle.
