can I use inkjet paper for a Brother Fax 575 machine?

Hello and Good Morning Everyone

           I am wondering if I can use regular inkjet paper for faxing and copying needs using a Brother Fax 575 machine.  Any shared suggestions to this question will be greatly appreciated.

I use 96 brightness 20 pound paper from Staples and it works in any printer including my HP 8610. My clients use the same paper for HP Laser, Xerox copier and (sometimes) Xerox Colour Cube. We also have special gloss paper for the Colour Cube that is only used for that printer.

I found a good buy for Hammermill - Inkjet Paper, 24lb, 96 Bright on ebay.   Given this description, should it work out fine?

Yes. It is a bit heavier paper and I have one client who uses 24 pound paper. It works fine in good printers. You might try a package first to be sure you like the extra thickness but the paper will work.

The paper will be shared between two devices, namely, a Brother Fax-575 machine and a wireless HP Deskjet 2543 printer.   It should be suitable for both.  If it will work with these devices, I will go ahead and purchase the 24 pound paper.

It will work on both and should not be a problem. I see it in use several places and 20 pound in others. It is a matter of like / dislike.
