COME TO MAMA!! This sweet thing now lives with me.
I’m talking about the printer…not the cat.
The cat also lives with me but today I’m much more excited about the printer.
In an inexplicable but very welcome burst of decisiveness and motivation mixed with a little frustration, yesterday I finally decided that this was going to be the day that I finally buy a printer. It was time to suck it up, stop Googling printer reviews and just PICK ONE ALREADY. It’s been well over a year since my old beloved Canon ip4300 died so I’ve been using a super cheapo printer that my Mom got free when she bought a new computer.
I’m in quality full-color print withdrawal.
So I did one last round of Googling and was almost through my online purchase of the beast that is the Canon PRO-100 (retail $500). It the entry level pro-sumer model geared more toward photographers but it wasn’t sitting well in my gut. Do I really need such a fancy shmancy 500 dollar, wide format, 45 lbs. machine sitting on my desk? Perhaps it’s a tad overkill for my needs. Thankfully Best Buy shot itself in the foot by requiring me to enter a special Visa Online code to complete the purchase that I didn’t have so I aborted the mission and happen upon another model that was more my speed….AND I found it at Henry’s for $150 off.
And it’s still WIDE FORMAT people. How exciting.
I know I’m not the only one in need of or is indecisive about which printer to choose so as soon as I get this baby up and running I will be back to share my thoughts and feedback.
You can’t imagine all the great goodies coming to PC in the next few weeks so I’ve got to get ready to print, print, print!
Speaking of new goodies….this week’s release is going to be EPIC! I’m WAY too excited about what’s coming this week to wait until tomorrow to share a sneak peek so I thought I’d do something different and give you a little teaser of some Minty layouts from the the team featuring this week’s release. Oh this Friday is going to be SUPER Minty Fresh.
Think you know what’s coming?
Check back tomorrow for another preview. You absolutely you will not want to miss it.
