Must Have List: Large Format Printer

June 18, 2012

Source: etsy.com via Lucy on Pinterest


This is one of those things on my "Must-Have-Someday" list. A large format color printer can be so very pricey to purchase brand new but if you're willing to buy used it becomes a far more attainable purchase. Wouldn't it be fantastic to print out patterns without having to piece together paper and tape together? Or print large scale photos to frame without having to employ the services of Staples?
Here are some used printers out there that are surprisingly affordable! All are color and have a resolution of 2400x1200 dpi. Currently on auction at $400 + $120 shipping on Ebay. HP DesignJet 130

I think anybody who has stood there at Staples doing a project has wished for one of these. Thanks for making it seem so attainable.

How much is ink, though?

@amyWhen I look on Amazon this is what came up:

The prices were about $38 a cartridge for color and $50 for color. That is more than I pay for ink cartridges now but I wonder if those are larger to accommodate the larger printing jobs. Of course, the more ink you use the more ink will cost.

I found an article about the tricks that printers will use to make you think you are out of ink when you are not. It definitely helps to maximize your ink.
