Hi there I'm new to this forum and glad I found it!
Hi There, I'm just curious what printer everyone has and what you recommend? Inkjet/Laser?
I currently have a Canon MG3120 Inkjet - nothing too special but it gets the job done, seems to print nice on most types of paper but only up to size 8.5X11 nothing bigger
I'm just getting started on digital scrapbooking as well as creating invitations/announcements so I'm think I may need a better printer.
What are your thoughts and why do you suggest the printer you tell me about?
Any comments are welcome to give me insight into a good all around printer that I can use to print some of my scrapbooking pages and announcements etc.

Hi and welcome to Digital Scrapper. I've been printing cards and 8.5x11 LOs on my Canon MP980 and I am totally satisfied. I use photo paper and the colors are vibrant and I am able to print borderless which was important to me. Of course, if you are considering a large format printer, that's a different story. Good luck on your search.Ruth

I own a HP 4 in 1 printer (printer, scanner, fax and copier) I figured that being relatively inexpensive, it could not be the best printer for printing my precious photos. (Which I do lots of as I like to resize and play around with my photos)
So I phoned HP and asked them what printer they would recommend for printing ONLY photos. The guy on the other end said "phone Canon" I was shocked! But I own a Canon camera and am a huge Canon fan so I phoned them and bought the Canon IP4800 - up to A4 size. I have since also purchased an Epson which prints up to A3. I love this one too - at the time Canon did not have one with those stats for home use!
I make a point of using "Good" photo paper and am never disappointed. Friends don't believe my photos are printed at home.
Good luck with your choice and purchase

I have an older Canon printer inkjet. I love the colors on it. It is not a wide format though.
Guess it depends on your space requirements and what you want it to do, how much money you want to spend. Think there are a couple of older threads on the subject somewhere also.
Must admit, I don't print at home much anymore myself. I'd probably google and see if you could find some comparisions once you narrow it down to a couple.Doris

I own a Canon MP560 and really like it. It prints both sides, borderless, etc.; however...I do not print photographs at home anymore and haven't in a long time. The cost of ink and paper far exceeds the cost of uploading my pages and photographs to Costco. I think their printing is excellent and the photo books they bind and print are all I could want.Barbara
