All, In a previous post, I asked if the papers used by commercial printers (typically Kodak and Fuji) could produce results similar to Cibachrome. I was told 'No'. This brings up the discussion of printing versus out-sourcing. Some of the prints I have seen from top-end printers (like the Epson R2400/2880, Pixma Pro 9500, etc) are truly stunning. The media available does produce a glossy print (which does look somewhat like Cibachrome). Also, the life of the home-prints is reputed to be almost as long as that of the commercial prints. So, this raises the question of printing in house or out-sourcing. Reputable out-sourcers charge <$3.00 for an 8x10 print. The same print, at home, probably costs no less, plus there is the added burden of having to 'calibrate' the printer, keep ink in stock, etc. The up-side is that the home prints may more closely approach the desired look, plus there is no waiting for results. So, the question is this: What do you do? I look forward to a lively discussion!
