What do you think about a Canon printer?


I am looking to buy a printer. I just recently purchased a DVD burner and I was planning on making my own cases for some wedding homevideos for the family. I want it to look good though, like a real DVD, on glossy paper and such.

My question is, whats the best printer to go with for doing this? I want it to look like a regular DVD quality, but not overly expensive.

Another question. Is there any type of printer that would be better to use as far as ink goes? I don't want to print out 4 cases and then be out of ink.

I think Canon, Epson are good HP is more rugged but often twice the price

Keep in mind that paper and ink will be a major expense Choose a printer that has individual, refillable colors and for which you can readily buy a refill kit.

P.S You have to be careful with DVDs - putting sticky labels on them can cause playing problems - something to do with the fine balancing within the drive - they're much more temperamental than CDs.
