I would go with inexpensive HP color laser printer. Laser printers can sit
for long time without use, without degrading, once you need it, it will
work. HP is the ones I would recommend - so far I didn't see HP printers
broken, or out of supplies which are not manufactured anymore (stay away
from Xerox in any event: I had to throw away several color laser Xerox
printers because Xerox stopped making toners for them, and Xerox did all
to thwart "aftermarket" compatible supplies).

The only disadvantage of laser printer compared to ink is if you need to
print high quality photographs: ink of different colors blends, whereas
powder in laser printer doesn't. But all on all if you are not picky,
photographs printed on laser printers look great too. Only people with
special needs will be unhappy with laser and will go with ink for

I hope, this helps.
