Question of the day 3/31/12

Recommended Posts

Fortunately, I have a company provided printer at home, and they also pay for the toner and paper. But yes, ink jet cartridges are crazy expensive. It's almost like you should throw the printer away and just buy a new printer because it comes with a cartridge.

Most companies don't do that anymore, unfortunately; because that's what I would be doing! :cool:

Marion, I think it is because they sell printers cheap, because the ink cartridges are proprietary to each brand (and even model!), so the companies make money hand over fist on ink.

Yeah, it's too expensive, when you consider the fact that knock off brands are thriving selling theirs at a substantial discount. I had to go back to brand name though, because after a couple replacements, the knock offs started screwing up the color disbursement, and I need pretty accurate reperoduction when I use a photo for referencing paintings.

Some day I hope to afford an iPad so I can use that instead of printing photos when I paint! The laptop works okay, but it is cumbersome, I can't get it close enough to the easel, and I need it for other purposes.
