It's cheaper to print it at the shop; printer ink and paper is expensive.

As Diavonex has said, it's less expensive to print at the shop but the satisifaction from your own print is pricelesss. It enhances the whole photography experience. If $$$ is no issue, DIY.

i used to think that printing at home is cheaper because shops need to make a profit so i thought it will be more expensive.

when I print on my own, other than the paper and ink costs, sometimes the first print doesnt come out well(paper jam,not aligned,ink smudge etc)
, then have to reprint on another paper... in the end spend more. There was a few times, i used 4piece of quality photo paper to get the perfect photo:sweat:
