Printing Digital Photos Online

By: marclindsay
Most people who buy a digital camera would often go out later to buy a photo printer. It's perfectly fine to do this however what most people don't know is that it's cheaper in the long run to print your photos online. Let's go through why this is the case.

Digital Photo Printing At Home

Let's say you bought a camera for $400 and you then decided to print your own photos at home. You buy an average photo printing for around $200. It'll cost you around $40 (almost double for a new cartridge) to change your colour ink cartridge and that's if you recycle them. However using recycled ink cartridges can cause your printing to break down. On top of that you'll also have to buy photo paper for around $50 for a pack.

If this is still ok with your budget and maintenance cost, you'll be surprise to see the quality of the prints when they come out. If you have an average printer you won't be pleased with the quality. And if you're after quality you'll have to get a better printing which could set you back around $300 to $500 depending on the model. You'll still have to pay for ink and paper which could cost more depending on the model.

Now if you can accept all the disadvantages of printing at home you'll be even more disappointed to know that if you wanted to print a large size photo, you're printing might not be able to do so.

Digital Photo Printing Online

Printing your photos online is an alternative solution for people who don't want the hassles and cost involved with having your own home printing lab. Online printing websites all come with facilities for you to upload and enhance your photos if you haven't already done so.

Some online photos shops even allow you to print your photos on T-Shirts, mugs, calendars and much more.

And one of the major benefits of online printing is that you can save money when you print in bulk and you can also get them delivered right to your door step!

If you haven't already tried online printing I do suggest you give it a go and see how you like it. It's very fast, cheap and saves time because you can get them printed while at work or in a caf
