Canon Selphy, Epson Picturemate Charm, . . . or Canon PIXMA iP100???

.

So I’m perusing the Gold Box Deals in my daily Amazon e-mail and come across this printer, a Canon PIXMA iP100 Mobile Photo Printer.

And my scrappy heart starts to pitter-patter and, okay, well, race a little bit, if you must know.

I’m wondering if I’ve stumbled upon another portable photo printer to add to the Scrapbooker’s Master Printer List!??!

Note: As we know, I can be verbose. But this is a Gold Box Deal for a limited time so feel free to skip all the verbage and go snag you a $249 printer for only $149 before it’s gone (ETA 04-22-14: Make that $120 OMG!). Don’t let me stop you from saving $100. What am I, Cruella de Vil? No, no . . . no hurt feelings on my part. You gotta’ get your shop on. I get it. Truly, I do. {Here’s the LINK again}.

Another ETA 04-22-14: Well, dang, only 2 hours left! I’ve never bought a Gold Box deal before, didn’t understand how they work. I guess it’s for even less than 1 day, LOL. There’s a ticker on the Deals page and it says 2 hours left with 11% claimed. Oh well, sorry, not much notice. But still wondering if anyone has this printer and what they think of it.

So, we already know the 2 most popular portable photo printers for our types {i.e., the Scrapbook Obsessed} . . .

#1 The Canon SELPHY CP900

#2 The Epson PictureMate Charm {which is on a screamin’ deal right now for $167.50 (reg. $199) with free shipping}

They each have their upsides and downsides and, as far as I can tell, scrapbookers who like to print photos at home {especially for PROJECT LIFE} are about evenly divided in their Selphy vs Charm love <3

But could this be a new scrapbooker's printer to join the contest? Here are the features that caught my eye:

- Light, small, compact - great for taking to crops or on vacay
- Excellent reviews for photo quality
- Prints photos (and, say, journaling or a copy of that map you scanned from Disneyland?) up to 8.5 x 11
- Prints wirelessly from phone, camera, and computers (Mac and PC) using add-on Bluetooth adapter
- Can print multiple photos per page

It's all sounding pretty good to me so far! My old EPSON PICTUREMATE is still chuggin’ along so I really don’t neeeeeeddd a new photo printer. But if I did, I’d sure be checking this one out!

What do you think of it? If anyone has this printer, please share a review with us!

Scrapbook Deals and Steals: Silhouette Cameo Bundle and Canon Selphy Photo Printer GREAT SALE

Send to Kindle

With holiday shopping in full swing, it’s fun to see all the great deals being offered for scrapbookers! I noticed 2 on Amazon today and thought I’d share. They’re having Cyber Monday Deals Week and the star of the first page is this Silhouette Cameo Starter Kit Bundle for $194.99 with FREE shipping.

I don’t have one of these beauties {yet} and don’t really follow the prices but it says that the retail on this would be $344.95 so that’s a savings of $150 = wow!

You can also get the Canon SELPHY CP900 White Wireless Color Photo Printer for only $67.99 with FREE shipping. This printer retails for $99.99 so that’s another amazing deal.

You can get it for the same price in black if that’s your preference.

I know from experience that these prices won’t last long. In fact, it says the Silhouette bundle special is good for today only. I’m not sure about the Selphy but in the past, once people start ordering them, the price went up. That’s how Amazon rolls, my friends …

So happy shopping if either of those are on your Scrappy Christmas List!! Would love to hear if you snag one of them! Or {ahem} both ;)

Click on this link to get this fabu deal:
Canon SELPHY CP900 Wireless Color Photo Printer

Here is everything you get for $60:

New wireless capabilities lets you print right from your computer, iOS and Android devices
Light, compact body and an optional battery makes it easy to take this printer with you
Preview your images on the built-in 2.7-inch tilt-up LCD

*If you would like to see the full specs on the Selphy, HERE is the Canon webpage.

The only choice you need to make is do you want it in black or white?

Here’s what the printer looks like when the tray is open.

It still takes up very little desk space. I also love how portable it is. I was cropping last weekend on the road and I really could’ve used one of these. I had my iPhone and laptop with me and could’ve printed photos while there and scrapped them or gotten more Project Life done.

I seriously considered buying one while there and called the local Best Buy. But when I heard the price tag {$100}, I had to pass. Plus they only had the black in stock and I really want it in white.

So, yes, I do have big love for my old EPSON PICTUREMATE PM 260. It has its benefits over the Selphy for sure – but the Selphy has features that the Epson doesn’t. I’ve been resisting a Selphy for years now – do I really need 2 portable printers? – but I may just have to give in at this price!

I’m “picturing” (ha ha) Thanksgiving and Christmas events where I could bring this (you can run it on batteries) and everyone could print photos from their smart phones. Sounds so fun! And think how easy 30 Days of Thankfulness, December Daily, and Project Life could be this busy time of year with this great tool.

What do you think? Are you tempted by such a great price on the Selphy? If you “need” one, HERE is the link again ;)

If you get one, I’d love to hear which color you chose and also if you got any ink, paper, etc.
