I'm using a HP 820cxi inkjet printer and regular
inkjet transparencies.

I buy PCB's with photoresist, and this works out ok for me.
Generally I don't use track widths less than 0.2 mm.

On the HP printer it seems that more ink is applied if I set the output
quality to maximum and specify "Premium paper" instead of "Transparency"
