Can the same image be reproduced on different papers?

You should only offer the same image on different papers if you are doing an Open Edition print run. The paper type and size information will appear on your Certificate of Authenticity if you are offering Limited Edition prints, and the very fact that the run is limited means that ideally you should just offer the print on one paper or canvas surface.

Your print partner will certainly be there to help you choose the print media best suited to any particular image. Remember, any print partner worth dealing with will have produced many different images on various print media during their time, and they are best suited to helping you choose the print media that best suits your particular image. But it does often come down to personal choice.

So the rule of thumb here is yes, in theory the same image can be offered and printed on different papers, but if you are offering your prints for sale as a Limited Edition, you should just offer it on one paper or canvas type.
