Picturemate Charm Pm225 Inkjet Photo Printer - Color Inkjet - 37 Second Photo - 5760 X 1440 Dpi - Usb, Pictbridge - Pc - Epson C11ca56203


I love this printer so much!!! It is so incredibly fast and the quality of the prints is amazing! I've had it for about 9 months - never had any problems with it! Prints look great on glossy paper and just gorgeous on matte!

It's as good as can be for a tiny portable printer


The interface for printing, editing and selecting is not intuitive. It makes errors with horizontal and vertical photos, printing them the wrong way when the picture is specifically one way or the other, the frame that the PM 225 uses on its screen....

Love my PictureMate Charm!


It's amazing! Love the quality, speed, ease of use. I find I enjoy it most hooked up to my Mac. I love working directly from it to the printer, so I can choose, print, work on more in Photoshop and print more. My workflow is non-stop now. As a...

allow lots of time to print!


I am an event planner and I purchased this printer to use on site at an event where I took a photo of the guests with the host as they came in. My goal was to then print the photos, put them in a paper frame, then have the photos available for them to...

Grear pictures


This is my third Picture Mate, second PM225. I use them a lot, until I wear them out. They have always done an excellent job, printing over one hundred pictures at a time. Color is spot on. Speed is fast. Portability is an added bonus. Prints dry fast...
