photopaper has ability to dry out droplets of ink the moment they are sprinkled.

plus it as well depends, how much DPI prinitng you are using, as if you require that magazine looking thing to be printed out, set your printer @ 1200 dpi

and also, use photo paper.

but u wont be able to print out more than 10-14 prints (a4 size paper).

canon has best printing technology i believe.

Get yourself a Laser Printer. They are coming down in price all the time and they are cheaper to run. Look around in the papers, you might have some one trying to get rid of older model. And if you are only going to be using it for School Work, then you can live with out colour.

I have been getting by with B/W Laser Printing for about 10 years now. At it reallly good that I only need to change the toner once a year (and then some)

You are right about ink prices. I have my little HP 3550 which i am debating the following :-
* Do I buy new ink tanks when it runs out?
or
* Do I buy a new printer instead?

laser printers usually have a minimum of 4ppm, and that's usually in colour.
black and white they are usually 16ppm and above

Most of the information above has been about the printers that you would probably have at home or in a small/medium size office. I have a friend that has a print shop (does everything from flyers, to church bulletins, to booklets, to magazines, etc.) and the equipment he has is a lot more elaborate (and larger in size) to handle all those printing types.

It is possible to have magazine type printing (even glossy) with home printers, but they would be extremely slow in contrast with the commercial ones and expensive when it comes to the paper and ink.
