Can others edit my Photos
Photos NOT OK to edit
Hello all,
I am new to the forum and came across it when I Googled this question... I own a photo lab and just had to get rid of my Noritsu printer, which I used to print my passports on. I can't seem to find an answer to the question, are U.S. passports acceptable if printed with an inkjet printer? All I can find on the passport site is they must be printed on 'photo quality paper'. Has/ does anyone print passports on an inkjet?
I just printed mine for my family and I with an HP Photosmart D110 printer at my house. As long as it meets the size and quality criteria, yes, they will take it.
Yeah, I took my father's passport photo and he just printed it off at home and sent it in.
Yes very familiar with taking passports, just needed to know if outputting them on an inkjet printer would be ok, don't want to piss off my customers. Thanks!
Worked fine for my wife's and my passports that we got renewed last year. Just printed a couple of snaps off, trimmed to the proper size and sent them off. Easy as pie.
the places that have DryLabs are essentially using inkjets.
hell InkJets are also used for expensive prints...only they're called Giclée
