I made lots of type R prints, first time in late high school, circa 1980. In fact there was a night time mostly adult ed class in beginners darkroom and I had an English teacher keep telling me I could take it. I finally told her, "Mrs. Fair, I could teach it." Oddly enough, I ended up doing just that, for one night anyway. The teachers who taught it found out I printed color and invited me to come in and make a color print to demo. I exposed one of their slides at home, loaded the paper into my Unicolor drum and took that to the class and processed it. I think it was Type 1993 in those days. Sigh.
