Re: color printing

I have the Citizen Printiva 600C and have had it for two years.  The =
print quality is okay, the colors are not a vibrant as my HP inkjet.  =
And it is s-l-o-w.  It is one of those multiple pass machines that first =
prints cyan, then yellow, then red, etc. so the printing process is =
quite slow.

On the plus side it does produce a dry print and supposedly does not =
fade.  I visited the Alps website and it sure looks a lot like that.

I have not used my much, mostly resorting to the HP inkjet.  In fact, =
I'm thinking about getting rid of it and use the real estate for a flat =
bed scanner or copier.

By the way does anyone have an inexpensive personal copier that they =
would recommend.  At a recent workshop, Ed Hutchins had a Canon copier =
that had color cartridges and you could do some neat effects.  The =
copier doesn't necessarily have to be new if anyone knows of any =
resources, I'd appreciate it.

Thanks in advance.

This sounds like the new Alps printer. For a look at it (plus a free
printed specimen) go to:
