Default Anyone know about photo printers?

OK, so I'm thinking about getting a photo printer? The first question is: does someone have one that prints out REALLY GOOD photos, as in, someone else won't know that it was printed at home? The second question is: obviously, these printers will use a lot of ink, so is there a way to buy ink in bulk, somehow, to save money??? Any suggestions on which printer to buy would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

I have found that it is a waste of money. Much easier and cheaper to take my pica in via media or to e-mail them. Better results and a fraction of the cost.'

What yanc and cola said


That being said, I had an Epson "all in one" printer/copier/scanner that would print off color prints as good as you get from a "photo lab", and they were dry to touch when they came out of the printer (a big deal if you pick a photo up off your hp and smear it cause it's still wet)...got tired of paying $30 per color (3 or 4 colors of ink in it plus black) every time it showed low ink...after buying quality photo paper and ink you are cheaper paying what .35 a print at Walmart/cvs/Walgreens.

Well, that's sort of the problem I have with this stupid Epson cx5000, except that it DOES NOT print photo quality pics. It goes through ink constantly and the ink is too damn expensive. So much so, that I've only tried to print like 5 photos ever. But, I have some good pics on my puter and I wanted to print them out one day, particularly some of my friend's wife, who passed away a couple of years ago, and he doesn't have many pictures of her.

Y'all didn't give me the answer that I wanted to hear, BUT I APPRECIATE Y'ALL BEING HONEST. I REALLY DO.

This. Copy them to a flash drive and visit wally-world.

You can buy an epson all in one there for under $100 that has separate cartridges for every color. A little cheaper. Prob is, alwasy keep a spare of evry color otherwise at 10:00 pm some night, you are gonna run out trying to print something.

yep, you just end up with 120-150 bucks in ink sitting in your cabinet at a time

My local Walgreens has a deal periodically where you can get anywhere from 25 to 100 photo prints free with any ink cartridge refill.

BTW, I have a fancy Cannon photocopy/print/scan machine. Did a great job. Ate me alive in ink, even draft copies using plain black. It sits in a closet now.
