Some of you may or may not know, but I do graphic design work (among other things). I do a lot of blog design work but I also do many other things. I majored in art so I basically like to do a variety of artsy things and learn new mediums and such. Anyways, I have a portfolio online to show a sample of the things I do but recently I needed a physical portfolio. It just so happened that at the same time, Staples sent us a printer- the HP Photosmart 6520. So I decided to print my own portfolio at home with the printer. It's kind of hard to see the details of my portfolio below but, you can get a general idea of what it looks like.
As far as the printer goes... I really like it. For my portfolio, it was perfect. There was no complicated set up or special directions for printing on 8.5" x 11" photo paper. But, when we first got the printer, we tried it out immediately. It was really difficult to print on a 4" x 6" piece of photo paper. It took us forever to figure it out but, we did! I think there was something wrong with whatever program we were using. If you will be printing smaller pictures, you will need to print from a photo application to make it easier. I will say, pictures printed from this printer look pretty awesome and it prints pretty quickly.
