I'm considering purchase of an archival quality printer for producing prints of my art and photography work.
One recent online source (not affiliated with any printer company) recommends either:
- Epson SureColor P600 (uses pigment inks; higher end, in the $700 range), or
- Canon Pixma Pro-100 (uses dye inks; lower-mid range, the $300 range).
I am aware that the bigger, longer-term expense is the ink cartridges, plus the obligatory hassle of keeping the machine in regular use to avoid clogging.
I invite opinions on your experiences. Thank you!
Happy and creative wishes to all for 2016!
