    OK, John will jump in here with setting the margins
    He seems to be the best person to do that and
    save you from printing 10-20 prints...
    be patient, he should be around soon

    Did you set your printer to borderless printing? It looks like there is
    border.

    Please do another test print with the following margins top = 39, left = 0,
    right = 10, and bottom = 15, and include a scan of the print out here.

    Good morning John,
      I purchased the Epson charm 225 for my I daughter's wedding in September. We are planning on approximately 350 guests. After doing some test printing I found that the cartridges for this printer only will print about 20 photos. With the amount of guessed we are inviting I am finding the ink for this printer is going to be very expensive. Do you have any suggestions for a place I can purchase this ink for this printer by the case or a printer that the ink that is less expensive? I tried to Canon IP 4900 but we could not get the margin suggested so I sent the printer back and purchase Epson. Any suggestions would be helpful.
    Thank you Susan Smith.

    Hi Susan
    You should get a couple hundred prints from one new ink Cartridge. That may have been a demo with the unit. I use it as a backup for our events and we get about 250 to 300 prints per cartridge.

    It is 150 sheets and one cartridge per refill. I always get at least that. It is not fast but very reliable. It is has saved our ___ a few times this year. It is important to print at least every couple of weeks with it to keep the ink jets flowing.

    Is it safe to buy them months ahead of time or will they dry out if not opened?

    Dennis means that once you open the pack print at least every couple of weeks with it to keep the ink jets flowing. if its new un-open than its OK

    Hello Susan,

    First... Merry Christmas
    The Epson Charm printer used special PitureMate paper and ink
    that comes packaged together with 150 4X6 photo paper and enough ink
    to do all 150 prints and costs about $35-$45 per package.
    Yes, the prints with that printer will be about .35 cents each.

    To get the cost on prints down, you will need to purchase a much more expensive printer
    (dyesub) like a HiTi or DNP that rum $450 to $750 each and use rolee paper and a special
    heat activated media packaged with a range of paper/media to get (2) rolls of 360 paper or upto
    (2) rolls of 700 paper... print per copy is about .10 to .15 cents per print and the prints are
    printed in about 12 to 15 seconds (vs an ink jet printer of 2-3 minutes.

    ...hope that helps on the Christmad Day Joe Connell

    Merry Christmas Joe.
    Thank you for all your help.
    I was thinking of using the 3m post it photo paper so I easily pull the back off and stick it in the wedding book. Will the paper work? Also can I buy the ink separate?
