The printers also come with Advanced Variable Sized Droplet technology for smooth tones and fast print speeds, and are ideal for homes where superior print quality is required. Both new models offer cost-effective printing with individual ink cartridges which means users only need to replace the colour that is used. One doesn't have to wait long for photos either as a 10x15cm photo can be printed in just 13 seconds.

The Epson PictureMate PM 100, PictureMate PM 280 and PictureMate PM 240 all work in standalone mode, so users do not even need to connect to their computer. They are easy to use with fast print speeds up to 42 seconds per photo. Exclusive to the PictureMate PM 280, is an internal CD drive allowing users to print directly from a CD or save images from digital memory cards to CD.

The printers also provide direct printing from digital camera memory cards, USB DIRECT PRINT, PictBridge and an optional Bluetooth adapter. In addition to the superior photo quality, images will remain colourful and vibrant for a long time.

Both photo-labs offer 200 years durability in album storage, which means that photos can be shared for many generations to come.
