I turned white at 22. Roots would be the least of my worries Nick....

My excessive budget is because I was thinking about going beyond inkjet.

Still wondering about archival inks.

My experience with printers has been that they are disposable. I buy inexpensive printers for documents which aren't sufficient for photos. It sounds like $200 buys a decent printer. And I should make the investment in Photoshop.

Our local photography shop went out of business last year. This was the old time photographer that did B/W that wasn't C-41. And I've seen nothing good from "drugstore" photo labs.

Again, thank you all for your suggestions. Joe

All current Photo printers make prints that are fade free for decades.

Wilhelm research do accelerated fade tests....

Wilhelm is well known ... think they are from Holland ...
But anyways when any of the Injet printer companies get a good wrapup by Wilhelm .. it gets much publicity by the happy company eg HP


I just did google > search > wilhelm research > nothing fancy... it works.

the epson 2200 will be my next printer...it's about 600 bucks so it ain't disposable but i think if you got the bucks get the best....i.ve got the epson 1520 and my wife as the q86..the 1520 prints up to 17 x14 with good results and the q86 is a throw away ...but it does xlnt prints up to 11x8...
my wife makes the iron on t shirts and the epson dura brite ink is awesome for that

I just got a refurbished canon i960 off ebay a couple days ago and i love it. It was refurbished by canon, i inspected it and if i didnt know i would swear it was brand new, cost me 100.00 plus 15 shipping. I cant believe the speed of this thing and it isso quiet! It hums out 4 x 6 in 40 seconds and 8 x 10,s in easily under 2 minutes both borderless and the printslook great, im totaly impressed. I think it sells brand new for 169.00. It has 6 individual ink tanks and a seperate cartridge for 4x6 prints. Those times are with the best photo paper, i accidently used the wrong setting on the first couple and it was about twice that long for prints.

So far the only drawbacks ive found is its so fast the momentem actually shakes my desk a little. And sometimes on the very last piece of paper in the printer it will mess up the final edge, i just try to keep 1 extra page in at all times.

I love being able to get lab quality photos at home, fast and quiet even!

Best regards,

Mag

Hi Shotgun,

Just to confuse you some more(I,ve been looking for awhile for printer also), how about dye sublimation printers? Quite a few make 4x6 and the olympus p440 makes them up to 8x10. Dye sub is supposed to be like "lab photos" smudge and water resistant and longggg life prints. After 3 coats of color is laid on the print-one at a time a protective coat is then laid on top,the colors are supposed to be very good-although have not seen in real life.

Decisions,decisions,:blah:,

Happy :|,

norma
