:::Mad face!::: I wish I had of known this *years* ago! I would have *been* stopped using *soggy* paper ink jet printers for my printing! I always wondered how come my at home brochure printing never came out as nice and crisp or color pictures never came out with that nice shininess/sheen to them like I’d get from using the either the local library’s big printer or by using Staple’s color printers! Ugh!!! It’s the *laser* that makes the difference!!

When printing, laser or ink…. Does photos become better if you make the printer print slow vs. fast? When it’s taking it’s time, does it yield a better result?

great vid thanks a lot

MirkWoot says:

it is a wonder why inkjet has become so common, so many don’t need and so many problems. Ink costing more than machine often ^^, often we joked that we should just buy new machine instead of ink, cause nozzles soon would get clogged anyway.
Need photos?, just get some company to do it, cheaper and better i bet.
