    She wants to be able to print on 4x6's and other sizes with no cutting.
    I saw on at officemax for like 89.00 but that seems cheap..

    Help?

    most of your inkjets have the capability these days. My cheap ass 3 year old HP prints 8 x 10s like its going out of style. :o

    unless you're buying the big baller Canon ones, I don't know what the difference is... just make sure you get name brand. HP, etc.

    a couple years ago i bought a canon pixma ip4000, which i love.

    ink is a bit of a bitch, but will be no matter what you buy. its super easy to setup and can print full bleed 4x6 - 8.5x11.

    but it was a couple hundred i think or like 150 or something.

    i've got a cheap canon pixima ip1500(i think) and i've been pretty impressed with it considering i spend about $80 on it. and ink is dirt cheap compared to the hp i had before it. a black cartridge is $7-8 and a color one is around $18-20.

    you have to make sure it'll print borderless/full bleed prints. most won't.

    Local shops in Canadia selling the MP240 for $20, it sounds like a good printer from what I've seen, all-in-one too.
