A previous post mentioned "Dye Sub" and yes I only want the printer for producing prints of my best photos. Any advice on "Dye Sub"

Hi Tony,

The Dye Sub printers use a completely different print technology and there is no print head to clog.  The down size is that you are locked into a very limited number of paper sizes and finishes and if you want to print bigger than 6x4 cost is a major factor too.

I currently have a Canon Selphy 800 which is basically an introduction to the technology but the print quality is great and I can leave it for months at a time between prints with no issues - I am now looking for the next step and am trying to work out which is more important to me volume when I need it or size of each print - I have a Canon 9000 II for contact sheets, proofing and larger prints - then outsource anything larger than A3+  I wouldn't want the leave the inkjet idle for months at a time though.
