I tried this last week but got no response, so I'm going to ask again in a somewhat more general way. I'm looking for a good photo printer that is reliable, takes lots of different paper sizes, doesn't cost a ton, and is relatively cheap to run.
Hi, this is a follow-up to last week's question
in which I was asking about recommendations on a printer for a photo booth. Nothing came of that, so I figured I'd broaden my query a bit and see if anyone can help me out.
I'm shopping for a photo printer. It's going to go into a photo booth, but never mind that for now. All it really needs to do is be flexible about paper sizes, print nice photos, not break down all the damn time, and be relatively inexpensive. I'm hoping for something under $250 up front (cheaper is better as long as it fits the bill) but per-print costs are more important so if you can shed any light in that area that would be great. Ideally it would also be small and fast, but I can live without those qualities. It doesn't have to scan, copy, fax, or any of that – it's not necessarily bad
if it has those features, they're just irrelevant to my purposes.
If anybody out in the great Hive Mind knows of such a beast, I would be overjoyed to hear about it. I've been researching like hell, but it's really darn hard to get a straight answer about printers for some reason – plus I think I'm being a bit demanding in my criteria, which I imagine is also why I didn't get any answers to my previous question. I'm willing to be a bit more flexible now, since I've pretty much decided that my perfect printer doesn't exist. I just want a printer that I can stick in the back of my photo booth which will reliably crank out nice-looking photo strips and not destroy my wallet in the process. Please let me know if you have any ideas!
