I have had the day off and only a settle shift tonite. I am printing out photos for the album that I have created for my mums’ bestie and I thought you might like to see what I use……
I am not getting paid or any other benefit from this post. It is just the best printer I have ever used!!!!!!
I used to print from places like Big W and K Mart but as our closest one is Geelong it was a pain. My boys bought me my first Canon Selphy Printer in 2002. It was a new 900 model then and I printed it to death!!!
For Xmas 2018 my awesome boys bought me the new 1200 model and it is still my favourite way of printing photos. For this printer, your ink and paper come together. I always buy the bulk 100 pack from INK DEPOT here in Australia. It is very user-friendly and easy to navigate. The printer prints once for each colour (pink, yellow and blue) then the fourth time it puts a protective coating over your pic. They are 100 years archival safe. I have never had any pics go yellow or discolour.
As you can see above there are a few different printing options to get the most out of your paper and ink.
Top left – 2- 4x 6″ bordered prints, 2 -3×4 bordered prints, Borderless 4×6 which I cropped.
Bottom Left – 4×6 bordered print and a mixed 4×6 print which is an awesome option to have particularly for me when I scrap in my journal and smaller 6×8 layout size pages. you can also trim them to size for use on your projects.
Above are a few 8.5 x 11 layouts that I have made using the different size photos. This gives you an idea of how versatile the Selphy is. I hope this may have helped you if anyone is looking for a printing alternative and I highly recommend this wonderful printer!!!
