Adam, About a year ago, I added a dye-sub printer to my printer collection and never looked back. I was never sorry in purchasing it and am always amazed with the final results. In looking at the final prices between ink jet and dye sub, they are not that far apart. Further, people that receive the prints I make for them can't believe the quality. Good Luck in your decision !
