Thank you Danny. I used to want to wait, save up and do everything from here but I'm not ready for that headache and not ready to spend that kind of money on a printer either. Not until I get an out of home office anyways. Right now I barely have the room for the equipment I have and it's not a whole lot either. Besides I can be doing more work while it's being printed elsewhere which saves me time. I'm going to order from there for me (gift for myself) and try it out. I appreciate the suggestion.

I've been looking into getting a color laser printer for doing my own prints. They are expensive devices ($600 in color toner alone), but in my opinion, far better than putting any money into any ink-based device, and far cheaper in the long run. A laser printer can literally print 100s of photos on a single toner refill, and there's no ink based printer sold that could match the output quality.

Though, to be fair, there are some nice 9 ink printers that do an excellent job, and would be more than suitable for a home-based business printing.

In mean time, I've been using Kodak. In my area, they do 5x7 prints for about 25 cents each, and a 8x10 for $2, hard to beat those prices.

A cheap color laser won't even touch an inkjet of equal price when it comes to photographic reproduction. You will spend some serious dough (4 to 5 figure range) to get a color laser that can rival or best the cream of the crop inkjets that are substantially less.

Funny thing! in real life when my friends came to ask me I'll give the right advise almost all the time, but when I came to the forums for some reason I give the 'badder' advise

About Kinkos? yeah... you can print directly in any kind of paper, PLUS any kind of size... about the quality? No Complaints [next time I'll post the Printer models they use]... and for the delivery [for now I'm in a wheelchair] is very convinient to me, cause if you run a Retouching website + Kinkos = a good storefront...
Did I mention printing nationwide?
