It depends on the cartridge, or more precisely the ink in the
cartridge. When the Thinkjet first came out, there was only one type
of cartridge and you were encouraged to use the special Thinkjet paper
-- plain paper would work but didn't absorb the ink as well, and so
the printing would be sort of smeared but legible.

Later, HP came up with plain-paper cartridges and sold both flavors.
I don't know whether they still sell the cartridges for Thinkjet
paper, but I guess that if you can get the paper you can probably get
the cartridges too. They are the same cartridges as for the QuietJet
printers (same idea but wider carriage) so I'd expect you can still
get them in office-supply stores.
