I've tried most types of printed targets, and still use a .pdf target for OCW load development, but honestly, the best paper targets I've found are PostIt Notes. They're pretty cheap as targets go, come bright colors, can be found in a variety of sizes, and are (obviously) self-adhesive. They work even in a moderate breeze.
A 2x2 PostIt note makes a great 7- to 10- yard pistol target, and an equally great 100-yard rifle target. You can put a dozen on a backer board and shoot all morning.
A friend of mine likes to have a small bullseye, so he makes them on the PostIt notes with a bingo marker.

I like this one to hang up at 100 yards. I can staple four of these on the cardboard. I don't have to go downrange for awhile. That comes in handy if the range is busy.

A very good target :
Used for zeroing military pieces, cuch as the M1 Carbine, M1A1, M2, and M3- battle zero target
The tiny circles on Target1.pdf are great for rimfire pistol at 7-10 yards, and rifle rimfire at 25 yards or so. You can flip this target around and get the medium size diamond/circle that is perfect for pistol.
The big circle/diamond on Target2.pdf is good for quick pistol shooting, long-range pistol shooting, or teaching new shooters with (nothing worse for a new shooter than missing the target entirely)

Too much black. It kills printer cartridges too fast. ;)

Yeah, don't try it on an ink jet. I've got an ancient laser printer that lasts forever on a $100 toner.
