Great printer for the home!


I am so happy to be able to print high quality photos at home using the PictureMate Charm printer. The photos are vibrant and can be handled immediately after printing which is a big bonus. The quality is much better than the ones you get at the drug...

Epson PictureMate Charm PM 225


the pictures come out awesome, i bought it for my wife for scrap booking and she loves it. the only thing i would change is that it should come with the usb cable to hook it up to a computer, but other than that we are very satisfied.

Disappointing project:


The Charm did fine at first, but when it sits for a few months, it needs a whole new (and pricey) toner cartridge. Doesn't seem like a good product for people who like to print every few months.

Charm is not a charmer


The CHarm does not have the zoom feature that was found on the earlier Picturemate photo lab Snap (gray box). That was the best feature and you've eliminated it! I like the quality of the print, but with no zooming ability the fun is gone!
