can you use an inkjet printer or does it need to be laser?

Hi, I think the author is trying to say that inkjet ink will run, making the image fuzzy/unclear. (that's what I gathered from similar instructables, atleast)

So depending on the type of image and intended result it might work, but laser printed is definitely better.

Hi, it has to be a laser, 'cause the ink of the inkjets can easily spread away (not sure how to tell it)

this looks a lot like this instructable but the sponge idea is a lot better than using your own finger, love the work!
