a printer that's capable of doing good quality prints of my photos which I can frame and sell. But also one that doesn't drink ink, and is affordable when it comes to replacement inks?
Which format are you looking for - A4 or A3 ? Which type of inks are you planning to use - dye - TS6350 or pigment - Pro 1? And which type of paper(s) are you planning to use - glossy - matte - or else ?
Affordable replacement inks - do not use any 3rd party dye inks - don't even think about it - their longevity is mediocre - but the GI-53 inks of the G550/650 Megatank printers are Chromalife inks - the same as in the TS6350 cartridges - these inks could be used for refill. If you go for pigment inks there are some possible alternatives - but inks and papers need to be tested together for the best look - there are some pigment ink specific issues like bronzing and gloss differentials.
