I love my colour printer.
For years we have had a black and white laser printer. It works fine, has lasted a long time, and is economical to run. But it was rather limiting when it came to crafts.
So when we moved house last year, and I acquired a work room of my own, I graciously allowed my husband to have the laser printer in his office. I, meanwhile, emptied out my money box and bought myself a swanky new colour printer. It is a thing of beauty, sitting unobtrusively on the corner of my desk and trilling into life when I send it a job (wirelessly, no less). It wasn’t cheap, and I am in denial about how much the cartridges cost, but it gives me enormous pleasure every time I use it. And it has greatly increased the scope of my labelling and packaging.
