Fantastic printer!!!!!!


I bought this printer (which I am not sure is still available?) for my wife to use in her scrapbooking events. It is so small, lightweight and easy to use that she can take it to her events and print out each individual photo to put in her books. Terrific find and HIGHLY recommended.

What a surprise


My husband researched this product for me, so when I saw the photo I was skeptical-very skeptical. He gathered all the technical data and I trust his opinion on those things. When it arrived, I really felt like I could take it out on the beach and set up shop, but when I used it - now that's another matter. The ease of printing right out of my design program is great. The images are beautiful; and what's the best thing for me, is not worrying about wasting too much ink. I absolutely love this printer and highly recommend it.
