I used to print at home with an Epson 2200, which was about a $2k printer, as I recall. And yet, 15 years ago, I spent a great deal of time trying to get my print to match my screen and I lost interest. Has technology changed significantly over the past 15 years, whether we are talking about printing at home or sending it out? I never really considered sending out my prints because I like to use photo rag papers and other papers that might not be available if I send it out. But perhaps there is a high end service out there that has every kind of paper. If so, I'd like to hear about. I take mostly black and white. I am just a hobbyist, not a professional.
