Having a top-notch printer is absolutely crucial if you (a) have kids, (b) run a home business, (c) enjoy taking pictures, and/or (d) homeschool. Since our family falls in all four of those categories, our printer gets quite the workout.
I’d like to introduce you to our printer – the Epson Expression Photo XP-850 Small-in-One Printer.
Designed with photo enthusiasts and families in mind, the sleek and compact printer delivers brilliant 4″ x 6″ photos as fast as 10 seconds (no need to use Walgreens, Shutterfly, or other photo printing services). The printer also features automatic 2-sided printing, CD/DVD printing, a rear paper feed for card stock & envelopes, plus convenient wireless networking. You can even print from your smartphone!
It has color fax capabilities too, which I am less enthused about since faxing is all but dead in 2013. RIP.
Here are a few projects our family has used the machine for.
Coloring Sheets! Our girls are forever asking for “just one more coloring sheet.” We typically google “free coloring sheets” and plenty of options pop up. Their favorite subject matter is princesses, Disney-anything, nature scenes, and/or children’s book characters.
Another appealing option is that you can take any real photo and turn it into a coloring sheet. Cool, right?
TucsonTopia Flyers! If you live in the Tucson metro area and haven’t stopped in at TucsonTopia.com, please do. Tim & I launched the site to help you find out “what IS happening, what WILL happen, and what you can help MAKE happen in Southern Arizona.” You’ll find restaurant reviews, park profiles, event listings, and weekly giveaways.
Pictures for grandparents! I snapped a cute shot of my mom holding Audrey at the park several weeks ago. Instead of letting the photo sit on my phone, I decided to print it out and send it via mail for a happy postal surprise. (I really ought to do that more often – now that I know how to do it). It was so simple. I just went to my photo of choice, hit print, and the XP-850 “knew” to print it on 4×6 photo paper. So smart.
