Elisa:

The cost of printing depends on the ink coverage.  A typical newsletter is 
20-30% ink coverage.  A photo printed to the edges of the page is probably 95% 
coverage.  I don't know inkjet costs, but an 8x10 newsletter printed on a color 
laser printer probably costs $.20 for the consumables.  Check the Xerox web 
site for cost of printing on the Phaser line of laser printers.  

You might also look at the Kodak site.  They introduced an inkjet printer last 
year and the key differentiator islower ink costs.  Kodak probably haa some 
stats on inkjet printing costs since they would want to show that the Kodak 
inkjet is less expensive than other models.

I've searched every corner of the web I could find to get idea of what
ink-jet prints cost, and couldn't find anything definitive.

Does anyone who makes ink jet prints regularly have an idea of how many 8x10
sheets they get before they have refill the cartridges?
