Before reading this thread, please forgive my English.

So, here it is:

I'm thinking about buying a printer to print my photos at home, and print some journaling cards.
The printer we currently have at home (not mine), sometimes shows line pattern on photos and full color journal cards.. I men it doesn't print smoothly.

I have a Selphy printer CP900 to print 3"x4" and 6"x4" photos.. but I want another one to print large photos and printables.

Do you have any suggestions?

Thank you in advance

Epson Stylus Pro 1400. Purchased on sale at Staples a few years ago.

Paired with the right settings and paper choice, it's marvelous. I like that it has a straight-through paper path and can handle very, very heavy cardstock and art papers. Prints up to 13" wide and as long as I want. Also prints directly onto printable CDs, although it takes some effort to get that function exactly right.

No regrets, and it came with PSE to boot!

I have an Epson Stylus R2000. Expensive, yes, but Epson.com offers rebates. I got it after having a terrible experience with an HP Photosmart 5510. It basically left me paranoid that I wasn't getting pictures that would last (plus the thing broke multiple times).

I wrote about my experience in a blog post here - Another New Photo Printer

I have never heard anyone have problems with the HP .. I am looking to buy a new one will be checking around now

I think a photography class should be a requirement in all educational programs because it makes you see the world rather than just look at it.

Sorry Jennifer , didn't mean to make you start your search over. I'm sure HP can make a fine printer, I had one that lasted for 11 years and it was amazing. It was when I had to replace it that I had problems. I would say if you are buying HP, get a photo printer, not an all-in-one.

Here's some detail about what happened to me. It's just my experience, not saying it'll happen to you - Photo Printer Fiasco
