Photo Printers

Hi,
I am looking for a portable printer to use at horse shows. People tend to be impulse buyers and I think it would benefit me to be able to print them right there. I saw an HP office jet 100 mobile printer at Office Depot today and wondered if anyone has used one and what their opinion of it is. I like that it has a rechargable battery like on a laptop and that it will print up to 11 x 14 pics.

Cannon selphy are pretty good they use dye-sublimation printing technique.
Dye-sublimation printer - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Since they need to be ready fast, these are try the moment they come out of the printer so you can handle directly them without smearing.

And printing looks kinda special

I looked at those, too. I think they only do 4x6. I prefer something that will print at least 8x10. I had someone order an 11x14 from a horse show today.

I don't want to think about using a normal printer outdoors near a horse show, the dust will be a nightmare i imagine.

I was planning to leave it in my truck and trying to park close. I could print some if needed while they are draggng the arena or having cattle changes etc. One good thing about cutting shows is they tend to water the arena better than some other places. I have been doing a few barrel shows though. I like the idea of the battery on the hp 100 so I can keep it away from the dust better. I'm just not sure I want to spend $279 on one. I know I can't right now. I need to buy a lottery ticket...

If yuu use your truck you might be able to draw power from it to power a standard printer?

I am just trying to make myself do a little research before I just go buy something. Will use my home printer for now, but would love the battery powered hp I think. Had someone else order an 11x14 from the horse show today. I just never thought people would order pics that big of themselves, but making a dollar so fine with me.

Indeed and if you've fun doing it.

've only used the canon myself never the HP but since it's just a normal printer i doubt it will be any different.
