Re: inkjet printers for photo output



I use the knock off cartridges in my Epson printer and have not had a
problem.  The color is the same and the price is less than half -  $10 for
black and $11 for color cartridges - Epson brand; $19.95 and $29.95 -
http://www.inkjetsinc.com/info.htm - I am not affiliated with this company -
I've just been pleased with their service.  I order by email and get a
package in about three days!
