    self printing may not be cheap, if consider time involve, and also the wastage of ink and paper because of making mistakes.

    if you really have volume printing, find a lab able provide you reliable and friendly service, they will give you better rate if give them regular orders.

    you also should consolidate your print orders, so you able to make lesser trips to the lab, you may consider some lab able to let you FTP your print order, or mail them the CD.

    if you are thinking of selphy-type printers, it takes almost 1min per 4R print. and you have to concern yourself with the colour correction, etc.

    if you have quantity, it will be faster at the photo lab.

    Thanks for the advise.However the fujifilm near my place charge $2.50 for 6R(which i will often be using)and to me it's very costly.I do not have the time to travel far to print my photos for school project.I was thinking something like Sony's picture station.Would something like this be hard to use?

    you can consider online printing shops, upload photos and they print and send it back to you via snail mail

    Epson PictureMate 270 91% *Winner*
