    Love this printer so much I bought a second one! I use it for printing out souvenir 4x6's at events that I photograph. I recently photographed a 200 person golf outing, and printed up a foursome shot for each person. Whats nice is that the ink and paper are sold together.

    Comments about Epson PM225 PictureMate Charm Compact Photo Inkjet Printer:

    I just received this printer from B&H and it is easy to use, quick, economical and does a good job. I read the reviews at B&H prior to my purchase. Please order extra paper and ink cartridge. The Included ink cartridge and paper allow for approximately 10 prints. I have found no negatives to this printer, knowing what it is for. I probably will purchase a higher quality printer in the near future.

              Our not for profit group purchased the printer to raise money by having holiday photo shoots. The photos exceeded our expectations and we were able to raise over $2,000 for the dogs and cats in our rescue group. We were able to cover our investment in the printer, paper, and ink and our donors received a wonderful good quality photo to remember their dogs, cats, and other furry friends for time to come.

              Comments about Epson PM225 PictureMate Charm Compact Photo Inkjet Printer:

              I like the size of the printer and quality of prints. My iMac with OS 10.10.1 (Yosemite) did not have the printer driver, nor did the Apple App Store, nor did the product CD, nor did the Epson website. The only solution was to spend about 90 minutes on the phone with Epson tech support (Ian, a 2nd tier tech, was great) who eventually got the driver installed correctly. Printing with USB connection is much easier and faster than the using the Epson Bluetooth adapter.

                  Every year our not for profit rescue takes Christmas photos for families and their pets for a donation. This printer saves us time in how fast it prints the photos and how fast they dry. The photos come out very good for an inkjet printer. The price for the paper and ink are reasonable.

                                  This is the second epson printer I've used for a photobooth. . . it works wonderfully. Fast, amazing color and good value per print.

                                  I purchased this printer to use as an on-the-spot event photo printer for people who came to me for a picture with a mascot for an NHL team. These photos needed to be printed before the patrons left and that's exactly what this printer delivered. I swapped out one SD card for another when images needed to print, but through trial and error, I discovered that (using a Canon 5D) the printer read the raw files and not the .jpg files that were saved to the card. This lengthened the time considerably with printing, but they still came out very sharp, clear, and didn't smudge one bit. I used the recommended paper with it, too.
