Gone are the days of paying hefty fees for the development and printing of your photographs. Unless you are using a roll of film, it is now much more feasible to print your photographs right at home! At Cartridge Hyper, we stock ink and toner cartridges for printers from all leading brands, along with other consumables like photo paper, so we can get you back to printing your cherished snapshots ASAP.
The first thing to consider, when it comes to printing photographs, is which type of printer to get. Laser printers are easier to maintain, and can produce some impressive images, especially as technology marches onward. The current champions of photo printing, however, are inkjet printers.
Ink printing offers superior colour and image properties, like colour depth and print lifetime. The greater variety of molecules that can be used in ink printer cartridges as opposed to toner printer cartridges, allows much greater freedom for development and mixture to achieve the ultimate colour palette. The colour range of inkjet printers has expanded greatly over the years, as some manufacturers have started using extra ink colours to enhance images. Cartridge Hyper stocks a wide range of printer cartridges. You can pick up ink printer cartridges from leading manufacturers, such as Canon, HP and Brother. These printer cartridges are ideal for photo printing.
Pigment-based inks are also important for printed photographs, because they are better able to resist fading when exposed to light and air. This keeps your photographs looking great in albums and frames for many decades to come!
If you really want your photos to look as good and last as long as possible, you’ll need to print on specially made photo paper. These high-gloss papers are designed by manufacturers to work hand-in-hand with ink to produce vibrant and lasting photos.
We have several different photo papers available, in a range of sizes and thicknesses. Designed and manufactured by HP, the paper we stock have varying finishes, from matte to glossy, and are compatible with all inkjet printers.
It’s also wise to consider the paper trays in a printer, if you are looking at buying one for photography printing. Printers often have different trays for different sizes of paper, so if you pick the right one for you, then you won’t have to manually change the paper for different printing jobs.
Get your photo paper and all the printer cartridges you can dream of through our online store or retail outlets. We offer delivery within two business days to Johannesburg, Pretoria, East Rand, Witbank and Bloemfontein, with waiting times of under a week for other areas.
