Been reading a few threads on printing here and it seems as though the Canon IP7250 printer is a good starter printer for A4 printing, in the past I have sent of my images to labs to get printed and I have never really been that wowed so I have come to a point where my files just stay on my HD and I don't get to frame them and put them on my wall like I would like to. I would like to know what determines a good quality print? is it the paper, the printer or the size of the file or all of the abaove? and how much would I be looking to pay for ink? I noticed Canon OEM ink for this machine costs about the same as the printer!! would it be best to use Canon ink or can other third party inks be just as good? also what kind of paper should I be putting through this printer for best results?
