What To Look For In A Photo Printer

Buying a printer based on the price tag is a bad idea.  The wrong printer can cost you a fortune (no matter how great of a "deal" you got). The right printer will cost hundreds (even thousands) less over the life of the printer.

This quick video Will help you determine if a giclee & fine art printer is right for you.

Key Considerations

Defining what you need in a printer will make the decision much easier.  Here are a few questions that should help decide which printer is best for you

  • Paper Handling

    What types of media (paper) can the printer print on?  What is the largest size you want to print?  Do you need 2 rolls or just 1?

  • Ink Tank Size & Availability

    Small ink tanks may have smaller price tags, but they cost more per ml.  Some printers use more ink than others

  • Archival Properties

    Pigments inks last longer than dye inks.  But how long will YOUR print last? How long does your customer want their print to last?

  • Print Quality

    Does the printer accurately replicate colors?  How many colors does the printer mix to create its color gamut?

  • Connectivity & Portability

    What is the largest printer you can get for the space you have available? Is a 24-inch or 44-inch printer enough, or do you need larger? Wi-fi, Ethernet, or USB? Just a few things to look for before purchasing.

  • Ease Of Use

    What software is included and how easy is it to use? Do I need additional software?  Does it print from PhotoShop/LightRoom?

Is A Giclee & Fine Art Printer Right For You

Giclee & Fine Art Printers are versatile and powerful resources.  Many have a reasonably budget-friendly price tag.  Having a printer in-house gives you the ability to print what your clients want, when they want it, 24/7/365.

Each customer is different and unfortunately, printers are not one-size-fits-all.
