Love my new scanner/printer/copier/fax

Well the week before Christmas we went shopping and I got a new 4 in one HP Officejet 6500. Well so far it is a love afair that is going well. I can scan a pile of photos in one fell swoop and do not have to lift and feed each one by hand.

I do have to edit them a little bit because it scans the whole screen area but I can live with that part.

Plus the ink in this is pigma ink that was a question I asked before getting it. To do quilt labels on fabric if you have pigma ink it will make things so much more permenant. I was told that this printer has pigma ink. I have not tried a label yet in it and have a couple that I need to do to catch up.

I will probably test this like I did the last time I created labels for the first time. I made a label and then threw it in with blue jeans and washed it several times just to see how it comes out. I will try and put up some photos of this in the different stages so all can see.

  1. good luck with your printer. I have an HP Photosmart C6180 all in one and I ended up buying another cheaper printer that resides in the closet until I need to make a label :) then it comes out because I can't do cloth labels on the fancy one - the ink washes out :( but the cheap one works good for it!
