which dye sub for events? Software?

Years ago everyone ran Sony and I've used them. But they left the dye sub printer biz.

I now see mistubishi and hitec for the most part - hitec seems cheaper to buy but more per print and mitsu is more upfront but cheaper per print - kind of a wash as I don't plan to print tens of thousands of prints. They're all heavy and get good reviews so no one brand seems better than another.

What I do want is reliable and the ability to get media for 5 years at least.

What's been your experience or your thoughts?

Planned use is a photobooth for weddings, proms, parties and printing 4x6.

I can print from LR and it works reliably, but I want to put a custom border on the prints on the fly. Other than using PS and perhaps making an action/droplet, is there anything else out there?
