Mother’s Day Idea ~ Epson Artisan Printer

I believe every mama needs a good printer. A printer specializing in superb color photo quality is a huge bonus! Love photography or just love taking lots of pictures? Are you crafty?

Meet the Epson Artisan 1430 Inkjet Printer. Let me tell you about some of my favorite features.

Wireless. Very important to me as I have a laptop that I carry all over my house, but even neater as it allows ALL wireless devices in the house to connect and print. Which leads me to the…

Epson Connect. An app available on my iphone, or any tablet, that allows me to print whatever is on my screen. I can go to my blog page and print out my newest post…in perfect color…in seconds. Perfect for instantly printing out those camera photos!

Comes with Adobe Photoshop Elements 9 ~ a $65 program on Amazon. Click on that link and you will see everything that it does! Repair photos, make your own photo books and cards, and get tons of ideas for your projects.

AMAZING quality photo prints. First thing we did was print an 8×10 photo. Then we printed one to surprise our friends! We had just taken one of their family and were so impressed we wanted to print more more! Photos are smudge, scratch, water and fade resistant thanks to Claria® Hi-Definition Ink.

 This picture is actually from my camera phone. Look how awesome it turned out! Amazing!

Print on any paper or directly on CD/DVDs. This printer is large for a reason. It will print up to 13×19 paper! I can not wait to get out my scrapbooking again (I am years behind!) and print titles and text on 12×12 cardstock. Wahooo! And just think of the cool color graphics you can now print out instead of purchase at the hobby store? Definitely a printer for crafty mamas!

No more Walgreens or Shutterfly for me. I can print beautiful 4×6 all on my own!

Cartridges. Instead of buying one color cartridge ~ you have six! That way when you use up a color you don’t have to replace the entire cartridge. Just the color you need! Neat!

Fast. The first thing Hubby said as we printed our first project was, wow this thing is fast!

Eco Features. Of course I have to share these with you ~ Energy Star, print multiple pages on one sheet, & the machine itself is designed to be recycled! You can visit to see their whole environmental vision.


The best place to buy the Epson Artisan 1430 Printer is on their site for $219.99 ($80 rebate)
