is what I had to make test cuts this weekend. I seem to have gotten side tracked. This past week there were a couple of threads on the Cricut message board about wide format printers on sale. I have been wanting a wide format for sometime now but could never justify the expense of adding yet another printer to my scraproom. Well I checked them out and caved. I brought home the HP Photosmart B8555 for only 149.00 with 50.00 bonus Officemax points. It even has reasonably priced replacement ink with individual color cartridges around 10.00 each. It is a bit noisier than my other HP but the prints are clear and true color (up to 13x19 if you choose). I really was more interested in using the printer for background papers so the great photo quality is a bonus. I did a test digital stamp on print paper and I think I am really going to use this more than I thought. It is however a large printer so I ended up moving my entire scraproom around trying to find the right spot for it. I guess you never realize how much stuff you have until you try to rearrange it. Long story short I only got one of my test cuts done but he is a real cuttie. Someone off the MB ask if I had this image and I did so I converted it. I made the passy a separate piece so you can add it or leave it off. This is Alvin should you care to try him.
