    If you print your photos through WHCC online, they have the water mark "copyright GwagDesigns Photography 2009" on the back as well as "professional images are copyright protected" and "Do not copy"

    Excuse my ignorance but what exactly is a copyright paper? If people can look at the printed photo than there is also a way to copy it. The only thing you can do is print some low resolution photo that is worthless to others or have a watermark on it that you would remove when selling the photo.

    Ill just throw out a quick example, I used to work at Ritz Camera, we would never print anything that had a copyright logo on the back or front. We would get people coming in with those senior proof prints wanting to have us scan them and print them out for them.

    No you do not need to register your photos to clam the copyright. In the US all art forms are automatic copyrighted at creation. But a register copyright will help if you need to take legal action. Link to US copyright law Loc.gov

    As for not find the paper in low volumes, there is likely not a big market. Do you think a stamp would bleed thought? I sometimes use very soft pencil (B6) and just sign the back.

    It's paper with copyright printed on the back, so people cannot clam ignorance of the law
