it depends on the printer. the newest ink-jet printers from canon and epson are nearly as good as a dye -sub printer and one-tenth the price. good dye-sub printers start in four figures and go up depending on finished print size. dye-sub used to be more archivgal (lasting 25 yrs. or more without fading) than ink-jet but that is not the case with the new inks.

I think you would find the price of consumables high with the dye sub. The Canon i950 in the same price range will give excellent prints and the ink is a lot cheaper. You can also print larger borderless prints. They will fade over time, but you can always reprint them.

You would probably do better to just take the images to WalMart if you just want 4 X 6 prints.
