    I have a client that needs a HIGH quality printer that is capable of printing not only photos but other types of media as well (e.g. postcards, brochures, etc.).

    The Canon PIXMA Professional series has been recommended, but I'd like other opinions.

    Pro9000
    Pro9500
    More Information on Both Models

    Price is not really an object as long as the printer is able to print high quality photos and other media. However, we'd like to keep the cost under $1000.00.

    Any thoughts, opinions, suggestions? Thank you.

    I like the Canon printers a lot.. I have a lower end Pixma and it does a phenomenal job for the price. I've seen some of the work on the pro series with the pigment inks - I think only the 9500 pro has the pigment inks and the grey and matte ink tanks. As long as the picture source is good and you use a high quality paper, they do some great print work.

    mm... i dont really know how "professional" is supossed to look


    but nice hp deskjets (like the photosmart series) printing on highest quality, with the appropriate paper/cartridges look pretty amazing

    theyre not that expensive... but supplies might be :|
