Where I cannot offer advice on the printer,there are many out there to choose from,and no doubt you will receive excellent advice from this forum.
When you have chosen your printer,this company is well regarded here for your ink needs.

lol . ye u shud but . i think that d92 printer when u order it for £19.99 doesnt come with ink.. crafty aint they .

Half way down it says "The Epson Stylus D92 comes with 4 separate DURABrite Ultra ink cartridges for the cost conscious user".

They make their money on the Cartridges you buy when them 4 are empty.

As I said on the Other Thread, Buy Compatible Cartridges they are a lot cheaper.

Whatever you get, ensure that compatible cartridges are available from someone like Choice Stationery.

Otherwise, you will be paying through the nose for replacement ink. For my Epson 895 genuine Epson Ink costs about £20 for each cartridge; (colour and Black). Choice sell them for about £3.50 each, and I find them equally as good as the Epson.

Thanx

"as long as the d92 accepts compatabiles": Yes it Does.

For very small numbers of prints, it's hardly worth buying a printer. There are a multitude of online "printers" who offer "The first 20 prints free", take advantage of their generosity and get 20 prints off :-

Photobox

Photobucket
Aldi

The list goes on..............
