    Default Print at home?

    Any moms print at home? I saw an Epson Printer- its kinda pricey for me- but I will save for it if its reccomended!! Hopefully in the end it'll be cheaper then 4$ a page!

    I do some picture printing at home, but in all reality...at 2.99 or 3.99 to print an 8 x 10, it is cheaper sometimes. It is costly to buy all the inks for my photo printer. I printed 9 8 x 10's the other day and three of my inks are nearly out. Those are 12.99 a color.

    If I need a few 4 x 6's, I'll print them at home, but for 8 x 10s...I upload and print somewhere else.

    I also don't like 8 x 10's with printer ink. They have an odd sheen to them that I don't notice on the smaller prints.

    It's not cost effective for me to print at home because of the cost of ink. So I order through Snapfish or Walmart most of the time.

    I've always wondered how cost-effective it would be, but I've never taken the time to figure it out. It would be so handy to have the option of printing something out for a layout at the last minute!

    Word of advice ask a million questions if buying an Epson printer.
    I bought one years ago which I loved how simple it was and how it did everything. what I did not love is if one color is out you couldn't even print in black. That printer died only to find out that there is a part that dies out which is loacted in the printer itself instead of on the ink cartridges like most other brands, making it much to costly to have repaired.

    I figured it wasn't very cost effective either with having to buy more ink all the time. I upload mine online (mpix.com) and have it shipped to my house.

    I use Target for my prints (4x6, 5x7) They will do 8x10 but only ship to me, unless your Target prints that size in your store.

    I have the Epson PictureMate Dash....it only prints 4x6 photos, but that's all I usually print anyway, and it is WONDERFUL! It comes out to be $0.29 per print. They look even nicer than Walmart prints, IMO!
