    Should I Get Another Photo Printer?

    At the moment I don't have a photo printer. Reason is that I have had several Epson photo printers but they have all died. I currently have an Epson color laser for documents but still considering whether I should buy another printer. I am a brand shopper by default and will probably buy another Epson.

    Having taken some photo courses and read a ton of stuff about calibration of the monitors and printers, I am torn between investing in a photo printer or just going to the local photo shop and have prints made.

    Please APUG users, "Pimp My Thoughts"!

    Thoughts please!!!!!

    I'll pimp your thoughts:

    How do you join Darkroom > Enlarging with monitor calibration and photo printer?
    Wrong forum.

    Photo printers die when you put developer into it.

    [SIZE=4]The solution is to get:
    - An enlarger
    - Some trays
    - Chemicals
    - Some photo paper

    ...then you can make nice prints.

    My Omega D-II was made sometime between 1937 and 1955, and it's still going strong.

    Okay, sorry for piling on. A lot of us use digital for some purposes, but we discuss it elsewhere, just to keep the APUG forums focused. There is a "grey area" forum for hybrid analog/digital processes like making digital enlarged negatives for platinum printing under the Alt Process forum. I would guess that this subject is out of bounds, but that's up to the moderator.

    sure, we love you

    BTW, if you don't have a printer at the moment, just get out and buy one.
    I don't have the knowledge nor the interest in the equipment to give you any decent advice on the subject.
