Inkjet Printers for 12 x 12 Scrapbook Printing

Digital scrapbookers who print entire layouts or partial layouts for further embellishment can benefit from desktop inkjet printers that print 12x12 sheets.

Some printers can even print 12x12 scrapbook sheets with no borders (borderless).Below is a listing of all current and fairly recent models that can utilize 12x12 sheets.

Choosing the right inkjet printer is one of the most important choices in your digital scrapbooking journey. Before getting to printer recommendations we'll cover some key principles you need to know:

Pigment vs. Dye Inks

Pigment inks are designed to produce long lasting prints (50-70+ years) in various display conditions. Printers that use pigment ink tend to be "professional" models and cost more than dye ink models. You should consider pigment ink if you are going to display your work for long periods without glass or acrylic protection.

Most inkjet printers use dye based ink. This type of ink offers the best color performance and paper compatibility. The downside is that dye inks are not as fade resistant as pigment. Newer systems like Canon ChromaLife and Epson Claria are good to perhaps 40 years on display and around 100 years in dark storage. The number is closely tied to how you care for the print and store or display it.

Ink Summary - Use pigment inks when you want to be assured of archival prints in many different environments. If you do not require extreme fade resistance (minimum 70 years) outside an album then dye ink printers can be on your shopping list.

Paper Feed Path

Epson and Canon printers have rear feed trays. HP printers generally feed from the front only. We like Epson and Canon because those top trays can more easily accept heavy card stock.

Cost of Printing With Inkjet

Red River Paper directly addresses the concerns and arguments about the true cost of ink in desktop photo printing. Using a number of printers, we conducted a series of print tests to determine how much ink is used in different sized prints. The objective is to share a realistic cost per print vision with inkjet users. Learn more about the surprising affordability of desktop inkjet printing here.

The only papers I use

I having been a fan of RRP for over 10 years when I bought my first Canon printer that was able to use 13x19 size papers. My favorite is the Polar Pearl Metallic, my friends are blown away by the quality.
