I realize a lot of people don't print as much as before, but when you do how do you do it? Do you print at home or you go to the store? I used the printer at the pharmacy stores and i got so mad looking at the quality. I dont need magazine quality but I don't need garbage either. I am thinking about canon pixma pro printer but then I'm worried I'm not going to be using it enough to justify the cost. Please share your experience. I'm especially interested to know if there's any online services that can produce decent prints at okay price. Thx in advance.
Depends on the size. If A3+ or smaller I print home on my Pixma Pro 1 and LOVE the result. If bigger, I print on the main camerastore in Oslo, and am happy with the results, also because they have great quality control.
Remember that if you buy the Pixma Pro series you should preferably print (size does not matter, so it can be very small) once a week to prevent it from drying out, thus having to waste a lot of ink when enabling the program to get it rinsed. Ink is always an issue, but it takes many type of 3 party papers, thus giving you the chance to print on excellent paper like Canson and Hanhemuhle and other great paper sources.
