Hi there! Can anyone recommend a good printer for all these DIY projects I'm starting? I usually print everything out at work, but we have all black & white laser printers, and I'm going to need color. I probably want to spend under $200. Any recommendations? Thank you!

I have had really good experiences with Epson printers. They print to most amazing photos, and color in general. It's been I while since I purchased, so I can't give you a model, but that's a place to start.

I printed a bunch of stuff on my Epson CX4800 at home (luggage tags, key/tip holders, stickers). But ended up printing my invitations at Kinkos because their ink just looked like a better quality. The guys at Kinkos were super knowledgable and for some reason only charged me half price. I also tried printing at the UPS store and they sucked.

Thanks for the info! I haven't had an inkjet printer in a long time so wasn't sure if any brands were better than others. I will definitely check on the Epsons.

 

I am just printing stickers, labels, etc. I got luggage tag inserts from Vista Print as well, love them!

I have an HP Photosmart C5550 and I love it.

I couldn't honestly tell you how expensive they are because it was a present but I don't think they are too much. But they are perfect for all the special projects.

 

It has a paper tray just for photo paper, and the photos turn out soo good. It also has a function that will print images on printable cds.

And it comes with a scanner too.

 

I would definitely check it out if I were you.
