Default After market ink for Canon sELPHy 780

Before I say no to an idea, I at least want to have done my homework.

The Canon sELPHy 780 is a mini-printer for 4x6 photos. It costs $99.00. If I buy the Canon package of ink & paper, I can print 108 photo for $35.00. Average cost is 32 cents.

I have a great photo printer in town. Roberts Photo (RobertsImaging.com) allows me to upload photos from my home, then I can pick them up in a few days. Their's are about 15 cents.

So why would I want to buy a printer and spend twice the money? I don't.

However, does anyone make an after market ink for the 780? If so, I've got to believe they beat Canon's price. I've looked and looked on the net, but I got nowhere.

Any ideas?

if you only want to print an image or 2, then the convenience will override the cost. however, for large print orders, 3rd part is definitely cheaper.
