Printing at home - what's the real cost?

I purchase 3rd-Party ink form an American company in Missouri. They charge me 28 bucks for all 8 cartridges...granted I only print about 30 to 40 large prints a month so I'm really a low volume user. I expect my Canon 100 head to last another year or two at this level.

I don't use a continuous ink source...I use the cartridges and clean the head after I replace the cartiridges...It's easy enough and have had no blockage issues. Those who want a CISS system for volume printing should not buy a prosumer printer (possibly an Epson if it's rated as such), but I wouldn'y jury rig a Canon not designed for that use.

I purchased a Canon Pro-100 for less than $250.00. Bought 150 sheets of Pro Glossy Kirkland paper for $20.00. The ink (including 3 monochrome shades) was less than $25.00. I printed 60 8 1/2 X 11" glossy prints in excellent definition (to the extent that I sold them matted for $10.00 each at a local flea market). Purchased matte 13" X !9" Canon Pro paper (50 sheets) and made 5 posters and I still have enough for at least a dozen more. I'm not a professional by any means but using light room and finishing the prints myself was fun and economical.
I also make excellent quality 4 X 6 prints for about 12 cents each including the ink. The Pro-100 is an excellent prosumer printer and has been excellent for over a year. It's large so I have it in my office on a sturdy table.
Look into it.
