My old color inkjet printer finally bit the dust so this time I decided to buy a Brother laser printer that only prints in black and white. This printer uses a toner cartridge, that is supposed to be good for something like 7K to 12K prints, which makes it a lot cheaper to operate. The downside -- no color printing.
I could have e-mailed to my local office supply store the photo-shopped image of the toy shop front (downloaded from the internet) I wanted for my upcoming Christmas display, but decided to print it on index card weight paper using my new laser printer. When my granddaughter visits she likes to do watercolors so I borrowed her set of paints and hand-colored my storefront. Then I glued it onto black foam board -- quick, easy, and inexpensive.
