The most important factor in the cost of the printer is not the initial cost but the ongoing costs of the consumables,ink and paper.

An easy way to make ink jet cartridges last longer is to use your printer's draft-mode setting. This lays down less ink on a page, saving as much as 50 percent on the per-page printing cost. Your pages will look light, but will be fine for quickly checking layouts or Web page.

We tried the cheaper ink systems for our Photos onto canvas prints and they were useless. Beware as you may also invalidate any warraty you have.

canon cartridges can be easily refilled, just make sure the whole you drilled is closed tightly (I use rubber seal and tape over it). this ink works great: ... 56133.html

Refills can get messy, and be difficult. They are certainly a viable option, though. However, I would recommend looking into inexpensive compatible cartridges that will only be a little more expensive, but will save you the headache of manually refilling ink cartridges. Though, if you really want to save as much money as possible, I suppose getting an inkjet refill would be the way to go.
