Summary: This printer doesn't make too many pages before needing new inks. I bought this printer to make contact sheets (full color, about 25% page coverage) in my photography business. After about 50 pages, one of the inks needed to be replaced, $13. at staples... a whole set (4 colors CMYK, costs around $55.) so to be generous, a color sheet costs about $0.50 to $0.75 per sheet.
