Ink Drying Time on Photo Paper?

Got myself a new Canon ip5200 printer and printed a bunch of photos on
Non-Canon glossy photo paper I had.
As I am new to this, I do know and have not found any info on how long I
need to let the prints dry before putting them into my photo album.
Can anyone tell me how long I need to wait?

Depends on the paper, as well as the enviroment. Microporous papers
like the premium PR-101... and oddly enough Hammermil indoor sign
labels I can spray with a polyacrylic spray directly out of the printer
without bleeding... where a water based solution I have to wait. The
kirkland photo paper for example I can pour under water directly out of
the printer and it bleeds only a little bit. I'm thinking 20min would
be overkill.. I lack an accurate number on this.

Swellable papers like Kodak Premium Glossy paper a day would not be
overkill.

Normally 12-24 hours is reccomended. However, Canon Photo paper is designed
so that ink is dry "on the feel" instantly - because it has sort of ceramic
micro coat and ink goes under this coat so you have the feeling that it's
dry, while it's not. So before any spraying or putting into album, better
wait 'til next day - at the end, what's the rush anyway...no need to tell (i
hope) that absolute best paper is esential for excellent and long lasting
results. Best way is to print some photos on canon's best (PR101) and
compare with other paper you might have, although this will tell you visual
difference, but not longevity one...

Canon recommends 24 hours before putting them in an Album or behind
glass. I use Costco/Kirkland Full Sheet Glossy paper (may be Ilford)
and have found it is about 97% the quality as Canon Photo Paper Pro and
1/7 of the cost.

Sounds like its relabeled. You don't know what it is and they won't tell
you. Based upon your logic, this is not quality and you shouldn't be using
it to save money.

Hahaha!

You said it very well! "OEM ink is important because it's matched to the
printer and the paper". And then she goes ahead and uses non-OEM paper!

Zakezuke is right when considering how quickly you can handle prints
without concern for smearing, sorting, or mailing them. s on what you want
to do with the prints. Apparently, the dry-to-touch condition of the prints
when leaving the printer still has some residual moisture that should
evaporate before framing, however. I have read that even with the so called
"instant dry" papers, microporous papers like Canon and Kirkland, it would
be best to leave them out for 24 hours before framing them as any residual
moisture could condense on the glass.

Let me guess - it's Kodak paper, right? If so, pitch it in the trash.

Similar to the savings (although less than) you would get by refilling
cartridges with aftermarket ink.
