Does Anyone Still Print Their Photos??

Thursday, March 31, 2011

I read an article the other day about printing your camera pictures... and had to wonder, does anyone even do this anymore?! Everything has gone digital, it must cost an absolute fortune to print color photos on a computer printer! Retail printer ink is prohibitively expensive. One of my printers takes cartridges that cost $50 PER CARTRIDGE. And the printer holds SIX CARTRIDGES. It is insane.

I go for the cheap ink. You betcha. I get my inkjet cartridges at I actually used to be an affiliate with them, I was so impressed with their prices and service. I am STILL impressed with their prices and service, but New York State's draconian tax laws ended my affiliation (NYS forced sales taxes on for purchases made through my affiliate link). I don't really understand why NYS does what it does... I was sad to end my affiliation, but I'm a devoted fan on I haven't found anyone who offers ink less expensively.

Anyway, do you still print your photos? Are tangible photos a thing of the past, you think?

Print a few. Very carefully selected few. Really doesn't cost any more than the old film/process/print thing, and it is instant gratification!

I print photos for my mom, because she won't go anywhere near a computer. And I do still print some for myself. But the vast majority of my photos are on my hard drive.

I print pics when I get back from camp. I use the Product Image Polaroid PoGo Instant Mobile Printer. No ink involved as it is all in the special paper. Just wish they had a bigger one, the size of the photos are only 3 x 5.
