Ya, I did it. Went BIG. Too big. I mean it’s almost like owning a one room house and your mother-in-law moves in…..well, almost. We (Jean will deny it!) decided to get a wide carriage photo printer and it was delivered today. It’s not big, it’s HUGE. I don’t have the smallest computer desk but it won’t fit on there. So tomorrow, with saw in hand, I’ll be modifying my computer desk for the printer.
I went back to HP because we’ve always had great reproduction and NO PAPER JAMS. Our main printer has been the Epson Artisan 800 All-in-One printer/scanner/fax/copier. Good photo reproduction but the thicker photo papers jam easily so you have to feed one at a time.
The new photo printer is a B8550 (13X19 inch prints) and is 22.75”X15.5”X7”. I don’t worry about the top clearance as this is a dedicated photo printer and has no scanner or copier functions and the paper feed is front load. So if I don’t return to blogging after a couple of days you can assume the board I cut was a load-bearing wall and the desk collapsed into a pile of sawdust.
