I am starting to do some digi printing. I currently own an HP Photosmart Pro uses excessive amounts of ink just because it cleans 3x per day. I am looking for a new printer. Just wondering what others have purchased and IF they are happy with the purchase. Thank you.

I have a cannon pixma, however it is not a 12 x 12. It only goes up to 8.5 by 11. I've been looking into a laser color printer and thinking it would be much cheaper in the long run for the work we do.

I found that most 12x12 printers are REALLY expensive. I found a Brother that will do up to 17x11 7/8 so you only lose 1/8 of the page. For my purposes it works and was about $300.

I have the HP Photosmart B8550 and have been really happy with it. It prints up to 13X17 and does a great job. Price of ink is always an issue, but I don't remember it doing a cleaning cycle unless it's been awhile since I used it.

I have a Canon 9900i that does 13x19 and works great for 12x12. Green is the hardest one to find, but I can usually go to Cartridge World for ink refills. Meijer recently clearanced a bunch of Canon inks, and I scooped 'em all up.
