Paper and trials

I've ordered a printer (Canon ProGraf 1000), so now I need to get some paper. Recommendations appreciated. First, though, I'm wondering what people use for undemanding stuff, like maintenance printing or when you want to do some kind of test. This is my first serious photo printer; I've read a lot, but I'm starting from scratch. I'm assuming (until I'm corrected) that even for the least demanding uses, I don't want to use (e.g.) cheap copy or laser-printer paper. Am I right?

For more general recommendations: I'll be printing mostly art-photo prints, from architectural to birds to landscapes, from B&W to vivid color. That's a lot to cover, I realize.

Other, printer-specific tips welcome, too.
