Photo Printers

Hey, I'm a new member but have browsed the board for a couple of weeks. I just wanted to know what types of printers do you use to print photo's, and how do you like them?

Is that the new 6 color one?? Looks pretty good, Do you use it to make profesional prints for customers?

The 1270 was one of the first 6-color versions. There are a couple of new generations now. I do use it to make images for customers. They are universally delighted.

I am not going to marry my 1270, but I am going to buy it some MIS quadtone VM inks and try it out with the Paul Roark curves.

I did kiss it when I unwrapped it this Christmas (bought it reconditioned from www.amatteroffax.com for $238). I put that info in there for some who might be interested.

Sam,

Why the divorce? Have you had problems with the 1160?
I thought about getting one to use with the Cone piezography.
