I feel this is a “luxury” printer and I saved for awhile to get it. I feel it is definitely worth it. I often use it to print 3 to 4 photos on one sheet for small projects like my planner. I love that it has sticker paper already on the back. I do have to lighten the photos before printing but I don’t mind doing that. There are tons of cute ways to display these and I love being able to print a recent photo to give to someone or put in a card right at that moment. I usually wait until I see the paper on sale on Amazon to purchase, which is fairly often.
