I've gleamed a lot of information here on this topic and hope we can find ways to uphold our personal calling, hobby, art creation and more. I've been blessed with some insightful PM in my inbox too that have me thinking and forming up some replies.
Personally I am not looking forward to a large cash outlay for a inkjet printer of any kind. I think a crack addiction would be cheaper than all those $ 5,000 a gallon ink cartridges. Like $ 40.00 a cartridge for 1.2 ounces of black ink is not an addiction issues.
