I used it a few days ago to print out the roster of the volunteer shop that I work in.
I use it regularly for some reason - I print things out that I get online bills for and seem to do a lot of printing still.

I use it once a week at least. I print educational sheets material for my children.
We seem to use it fairly regularly. I made some Christmas invitations for a couple of Christmas parties we are having in December. I printed off all the family Christmas party invitations and posted them. With the other Christmas party invites, there are always some older members in the groups we belong to, so those invites need to be printed off and sent by snail mail, because they don't have computers or email addresses. I am the Secretary of a group who fundraise for the local nursing home, and I have to send minutes by snail mail to those without email. My husband uses the printer a lot when he does all our bills. Our daughter uses it a fair bit as well, mainly to print off her resume when applying for jobs.
You Had to ask !#*?#!?

Printers are NOT my friend, never have been and 'well' I'm just not sure.


1. They are sold so just about anyone can have one.

2. They are sold with only half a tank of Ink!

3. They are cheaper to buy another printer sometimes, than buy refill Ink ~ and this is where I now roll over....Because it upsets me, that people do just that!

4. Landfill people do not care, but more so the makers do not care.

5. The Ink is so inexpensive to make, but they charge $40- upwards to buy a refill for said printer.

6. Oh I can't do 6. I'm over printers big time.

No I'm going to do 6. Those people who sell re-fitted ink, well let me say a lot do not fit, and some even loose ink, and also 'if' you use them, you no longer have the original warranty valid.

Printing is expensive, and it should never have become so. I don't mind spending good money for the printer, but at least make the stupid Ink affordable!


7. The Ink dry's out very quickly now....that's another 'ploy' they have so you have to buy more.

I have not only found this out for myself, but others have said the very same thing.
p.s....For those who may not be able to make out what the lady in my pic is doing ~ she is pouring the contents of her money purse out into the printer :)

Jonah I feel your pain. I think cheap printers are manufactured to sell expensive ink.
by annfi
Sorry Jonaj, not Jonah. Spell check strikes again.
by annfi
annfi you are sooo right.
by jonaja
buy a laser one -i have a mono laser and yes, the cartridge is $120 but it lasts over a year and never dries out.....

Finy: I don't have Laser money, they are not cheap.

My printer broke around three years ago and I haven't replaced it

Don't mention the war!
I have been trying to get my printer to print something for over a week. I have wasted a dozen or more pages on poorly printed images that are a total waste. My husband recently replaced our dinosaur computer with one from his work, but it doesn't talk to my printer yet. He spent a long time on the weekend trying to sort it , but by the time it did downloads with our super slow speeds we ran out of day.
When it's working I use the printer for my art. I print my photos for reference or sometimes for printing onto my work or occasionally as collage element. I use it a few times a month.

August 11th. Why so precise, you ask . . . . well, I printed out info for the kennels regarding the dogs and since moving I have not plugged it in. Haha.

A few weeks ago as I had to change ink cartridges. I agree with others that the cost of buying ink cartridges is way out of hand but it does pay to buy the heavy duty replacements for longer print life.
I've never had a printer, nor did I ever used my husbands, now broken down printer, so the last time I used 1 was about 5 years ago, at the volunteer job I had way back then.
by Miro
About half an hour ago to print out a recipe. I agree with what everyone says about the cost of ink. I try not to print unnecessarily because of the impact on the environment but I could cut down more I'm sure.
I love all your tales of woe above! Have a very old laser A3/A4 printer and do use it a few times a week and it behaves very well still albeit slow to print, well, I am not in a hurry. It is still useful for various things, like give a copy to a non pc person, print signs for garage sales, print forms etc. We should not fall for the cheap version of anything as we know it is not worth it all round.
Only a few days ago to print off instructions and a pattern on how to sew a bucket hat.
The ink is almost out so that'll stop me using it for a while
