Frank, come over to the Leica Users' Group and sing that song there. You will be upbraided most outrageously for being a piker! The special inks alone cost mega-bucks, not to mention the special printer software.

I use an Epson Stylus Photo R200 printer and Ilford paper when I print a digital image, but that is as far as I'll go. My old HP was a lot kinder on the cost of ink! (The ink for the Epson printer dries out every three months or so, and all six cartridges cost around $90 at Staples or Office Max. I have a 1962 bottle of Rodinal developer which still works just great, and I mix C41 chemistry from scratch at a cost of peanuts.)
