    Greetings!
    My wife and I would like to start using some of our digital pix for greeting
    cards and have a few questions.
    As we are working in low (spelled NO) budget mode, we want to obtain the
    best possible results with our existing printers.
    HP PSC 1210 3-in-1
    Cannon 1560s
    Lexmark X75 3-in-1

    As you may have seen, I posted earlier,
    (news:...) about editing software, so we
    do not know which program(s) we will be using to edit and print.
    However, here is what we would like to attempt. We would like to either
    print and glue 4x6 prints onto card stock, or print directly onto card
    stock. We have 300+ Canon "Photo Paper Plus Glossy" 92 iso, 270g/m(2), 10.5
    mil. cards. We believe it will be less expensive to print and glue, as we
    have some card stock already. At least in the beginning, as we learn
    editing / printing techniques.
    We are attempting quality, not quantity.

    Which printer should give us the best results? Are there any special tips
    for using each printer?
    When we do buy paper / card stock, is there a decent quality stock that will
    fold well, have a good weight, and still print a good quality photo?
    Is there any way to conserve ink while we are experimenting?

    We are willing to experiment, and would appreciate any & all suggestions.

    TIA!

  2. I have seen some good results that way....I just want to mention that most
    photo print sites will make up cards for you and the wet processed prints
    will look better and last longer than the ones you print at home.
