I gave up on the idea of home printing a couple of years ago, simply because of cost and, in many respects, it's a whole world unto itself
My little 'ol brain has enough time absorbing details about taking
digital pic's as it is.
However, I do use a high end Epson A4 sized printer for proofing some of the prints before I take/send them to a pro lab for printing. I've found the cost and results to be very acceptable.
There's a pro lab not far from me I've used periodically for years dating back to film days. Damn good lab called bond colour here.
I take it, it's the one in Richmond. If so, I used to use them back in my film days. A good lab, not many around now.
