I cannot tell you how much of a difference a real printer makes. The one I had before I bought in college. Mike/we got a new printer for Christmas (thanks, Mom) and it has already made a world of difference - and I just hooked it up today!
I finally got around to designing my new promo cards. It was simple enough, but coordinating Facebook, with Twitter, an email account, Etsy, a blog and so isn't so simple. Now I can send out one simple little card be done with all the social media networking in one stab. And, with our new fancy printer, I can do everything from home!
