I am not sure how these things happen to me, but Epson asked me to try out their new Artisan 800 wireless printer. About 4 years ago, I saw a photo Lisa Russo had printed out at her house. My husband looked over my shoulder at it and said, "Whatever kind of printer she is using, you need to get one just like it." Now, it isn't often that I am told to go and buy something...so 30 seconds later, I was on the phone with Lisa. She said she used an Epson printer with Epson paper.
I have used an Espon printer ever since.
I am still learning all the tricks that the Artisan 800 can do, but I have to say I am thrilled with it. So far I have printed pictures for scrapbooking, for framing, a cd label and turned a picture of Max dressed as a mummy into a coloring page for him. I can't wait to check out the photo restoration setting. (Good bye 70's faded yellow on all my growing up pics!)
When JD opened the box he said, "Cool. It is wireless." That is a lot of enthusiasm from my very laid back, even keeled husband. If you have fax/printer/photo printer/scanner/photo project maker on your wish list - this is a cool one.
Now, if the makers of BMW, KitchenAid or J. Crew want to send any of their stuff this way...
Seriously, Epson people, you had me at, well, "Epson."
