I'm just in the process of qualifying as a CM and so am going to invest in a new printer. I'd like to keep running costs as low as possible so have two questions
What printer do you have?
How often do you print? B&w or colour?
Thank you for any help smile

I print tons, go with cheapest ink, I wish I had. Thinking of changing my printer for that reason. Also keep the receipt I'm on my 3rd in a year. I print a lot of photos.

I have Epsom stylus 100 - about 4yrs old. Prints photocopies and scans

Buy ink off amazon - got 3 sets so pink blue yellow and black plus 2 extra blacks so 11 cartridges for £7

The more you pay cheaper they are

I print invoices as does oh as self employed

Buy not pay

Too blood early - blondes goes back to sleep at 5.30

And 14 cartridges - seems I also can't add up at the crack of dawn

So 14 for £7 making 50p compared to buying singularly which can be £3 or so per cartridge

I was advised to get a kodak. Dearer initially but uses less ink x

I've got a HP colour printer. Cartridges about £12.00.

I use a Canon.
Do NOT buy a Lexmark - ink sooooo expensive!
