This thing ROCKS! Have you heard the buzz lately about the new wireless printers that are on the market? This is one of them...and it is DIVINE.
It is Wi-Fi and Ethernet connectable, and functions as so much more than just a printer. It has the awesome Epson 6 individual ink cartridges, which is so great for the budget since you are only having to refill the specific color you are out of, instead of a whole full-color cartridge. It also has this "vivid" ink technology that I didn't quite understand the value of until i printed some color photos. I SWEAR I could reach out and touch the flowers on that picture...it was so real! That totally amazed me.
OH. And it also functions as a copier (that does multiple pages with a multi-page feed on top!) AND a fax machine AND a top-line scanner, too.
and can you see that touch screen there in the photo above?! yeah. how cool is THAT?!
oh my gosh...and are you ready for this? it also:
- prints on top of printable CD's (photos, text, you name it!), AND
- prints both College and Wide Ruled Lined Paper with a button. seriously. there is a setting where you just "beep", push a button, and it will print lined paper in seconds! AND graph paper. HOW COOL IS THAT?! my daughter was doing homework the other night and up came the inevitable "Mooooooooooooooooom! I need some more paper!" And so I got all giddy and ran to the machine and, SHAZAM, printed her some lined paper. Just like that. It was awesome! (Moms need little reason to celebrate these days....LOL!) Even she was impressed!
Those frames in the above picture I printed out onto textured cardstock and added to this holiday journal album I made recently....
(the frames are from a digital kit at 2peas by danielle thompson)
i was going to use the album to record my journaling for Shimelle's "Journal Your Christmas" class that i am taking, but my dear friend Rachael liked it so much, i gave it to her! (are you writing in your journal, rach?!) ;0D
i have a few christmas projects i am working on with this new "tool" that i'd like to share in the next coming days, so more to come! :)
in the meantime, i want to share Stuck In Customs, an AMAZING high dynamic range photography site that rachael just pointed out to me...i am totally awestruck by some of these images. and he's a Nikon guy, which is cool...i'm a Nikon lover at heart! :) but anyway....i love the emotive quality of this kind of project!!!! i'd love to try it. i have to re-read the tutorial, though, cause he lost me at "buy Photomatix". lol
