I am looking for advice regarding a small photo printer that would be used for printing directly from the camera or SD card. I usually provide photographer services for the small school where I teach. Currently, I hand the card off to whoever has requested the service for them to take and have prints made. I think it would be nice if we would just make them on site during the event. Any ideas? I haven't done any home printing in many years. It would need to be fairly inexpensive and easy to operate. Thanks in advance.

Canon Pixma TS-8200 and 8300 series printers do a nice job, are inexpensive to purchase, and are user friendly. Cartridges are expensive, but their longevity is pretty good. I have used a TS-8320 for the last few years and the resultant prints when using quality paper are really quite good - not equivalent in color depth to the prints produced by a professional print lab, but head and shoulders above self service kiosk prints from Walgreens or the like.

There are many other good solutions from Canon and other manufacturers.

I have an HP sprocket. There are a few using the same Zink (zero ink) technology.
Quality is adequate. Costs vary. Easy to print through an app.
At home I have an HP Envy 7830 with instant ink. I am on the £9.99 a month for 300 pages a month unlimited coverage.
Quality on photo paper is very good.
