The Crafters Workshop
If you want to print your own laser prints, you’ll need to print with a toner based copy machine or laser printer. Inkjet prints do not work well in my opinion. Below are some laser printer recommendations:
HP LaserJet Pro M15w (with genuine ink cartridge)
HP Laserjet Pro M118dw

You can take your images and have them printed on laser at your local copy shop. Or have them make copies on their laser copier.
