I been purchasing nice watercolor art online. How to print?

Simple question - I've bought some pretty watercolor digital images (from Etsy, etc.) and am ready to print them. Somehow, I assumed I could just buy a nice textured paper from the craft store and print them on my cheap-ass inkjet printer. But they're not looking so good - faded, in particular. The paper is absorbing the vibrancy of the ink, for one thing (I can see this via a comparison with regular paper and the textured paper I bought). I plan to frame and mount these things, so how do I make them look nice? Better paper, or different printer (in other words, take it to Staples or the local print shop?). Or both?
