I would add to Linda's comment that even pro photographers use printing
services instead of relying on in-house printers.  An advantage to using
archival printing services is their software for color management and print
sharpening is top-notch.  Yes, you can do all this at home, but it takes
time.  Definitely look for ways to outsource this task before buying a
printer.
