    Ilfochrome print material. There are several threads ongoing about these products on APUG.

    Ilfochrome (Cibachrome) is a nice process. Not too difficult. But it's quite expensive.

    There are also other possibilities; if you want to experiment a bit or want to have as cheap prints as possible (10 to 15 times cheaper than Ilfochrome), and "so-so" or "experimental" quality prints are ok for your purposes, you can also try Reversal RA-4 process. I've posted some info here; http://www.apug.org/forums/forum40/68475-reversal-ra-4-experiment-thread.html

    Or you can always copy your slides to a color negative film (make so-called internegatives) and make RA-4 prints. This may be the easiest and cheapest way...
