Making I.D. these days is so simple when you have a photoprinting business and uses Epson printer. You can print I.D.'s on Epson R230 and Epson R290 printers. You just need a software and a template for these thing. Having Adobe Photoshop is a great help because making a template for the PVC I.D. is easy. Going back to the main topic here's a video I grab on how to print PVC I.D. on your Epson Printer.



Calculation is the key and as for beginners you'll get many errors at first but don't worry because experience is always the best teacher.

Confused on Choosing the Right Printer?

Selecting the right printer for photo printing business is hard and it really gives us headache. We should always ask for others opinion and assistance on picking one. We should ask for a good brand, nice performance and the life-span but above all the rest the most important part of the printer is the printing quality of it because that would affect the performance of our income. Based on my experience working in a business like this, Before we open the shop I researched and read so many forums obtaining facts, listening to others suggestion and researching the printers speculations.

By researching there are many suggestion that I meet, some say these printer is better some say that printer is much more better one. So what I did is that I'm just reviewing all the comments and calculated who among them said the truth. But experience is always the best teacher so I would recommend Epson Photo Stylus R230 and Epson Stylus Photo R290 series.

Why getting those printers?


Photo Printing Business life depends on your printer, Based on my experience Epson Photo Stylus R230 Series has the ability to print pictures fast and I have used it 7 months now and it is till working. Yes the printing went wrong sometimes too but it is still working like just as I bought it when it was brand new. Having Epson Photo Stylus R230 gives you the advantage of printing into CD directly and now you can also print ID directly too. Same thing goes for the R290 series, you can also print a CD and print ID onto it directly. The difference with the two printers is that when it comes to printing speed with the same setting the R290 is at the best. But there's something I noticed between these two and I'm more in favor of R230. Yes R230 is slower in printing, but when you compare the print quality of the two R230 gives the quality you wanted(set it to photo only). Base on my observation when I'm printing with the R290 printer and set the settings to photo only, there are green lines appearing in the photo paper. But when I'm setting it to the highest level(best photo setting), The R290 printer is a lot more nicer because the quality of the picture is tripled than the printout of the R230, the bad thing is it prints slow, 1 picture set on best photo setting in R290 is equal to 3 picture printouts to the R230 series set only in photo, so the difference is the speed and quality. The two Printers have 6 individual cartridges. The main problem in R230 series is the paper feeder. All users of these printer goes through the same problem too as I read the forums, the printer don't have a reset chip so when you need to reset the printer take it to the nearest service center. R290 has a good performance in making invitation because it doesn't have problem in paper feeding. The best one to print invitations and any other prints that uses different kinds of paper, reset chip should be installed in the printer so that we do not need to take it to a service center (ask the stores technician when buying).

Espson Stylus Photo R290 Series - Best Photo quality picture printout but slow printing (when set to best photo setting because when it was set to photo only some green line appears) because it requires higher setting. You can also install an automatic chip resetter on it that saves the money and makes it hustle free. Picture below Shows Epson Stylus Photo R290 series.

Epson Stylus Photo R230 - Photo quality printout, slower print than the R290 series but when it comes to quality it is weaker than the R290 series. Main Problem is the paper feeder. The image below is an Epson Stylus Photo R230 series with CIS installed on it.

I just want to remind everyone that when buying Printers to be used in a photo printing business,the thriftiest way is having a CIS (Continious Ink System) installed on it but installing one voids the warranty of the printer so you are at your own risk.

By the way in my cousin's business we have 5 printers. We are using 3 Epson Stylus Photo R230 series, 1 Epson Stylus Photo R290 series and 1 Epson T10 series. They all have CIS installed. Why are we using T10? We only used T10 in printing documents and back up for photo printing but I do not use it in printing 3 pictures in a row because it prints really slow and it will eat too much time.

Contact me anytime if you are interested in photoprinting business. I am also setting up photoprinting business in a very reasonable price.

CD Burning - your computer has a dvd/cd drive so why dont you take the advantage of making audio cd's? not only audio cd, you can also make video cd's and save data on the cd (data cd)...

Uploading Pictures and Videos - Having an internet is a great advantage, uploading pictures and videos of customers also adds extra income to the shop.

Downloading Audios and Videos - A great way to add extra income because people always wanted new audios(MP3) in their cellphones,MP5 and I-pod. Having this on you market boost your daily income.

PVC I.D. - If you are using Epson R230 or R290 Printer you can print an I.D. directly on to it, another new product in the market makes the business interesting.

Advertisement Layouting - If you have employee and has a good skill in layouting then give a shot on this one. By Layouting their advertisement and printing it into a tarpaulin (tarpaulin printers cost much so better make the job out). You can also accept tarpaulin in all kinds of occasion.

Invitation Making - Having a Adobe Photoshop used for picture editing and resizing, you can also use the software in making invitations like birthday,wedding,baptismals and etc.

Keychain Making - making personalized keychains makes a wow to customer, imagine your own picture inside the keychain gives smile in your customers face. I'm recommending you to also have this on your market.

Personalized Mug - If you want this one in your market, you'll be needing a mug press printing machine. This is also used in souvenir in weddings and birthday's. Buying a mug press machine cost much so think twice before buying.

Personalized Button Pins - Others call this badge, it also has its own presser and cost around Php 27,000, Your number one customer on this products are high school students.

The only problem is there are no pre-cut sizes available. The only size available is A4 size(I don't know if there is any pre-cuts available now but I'll update about this).

CD Printing - On our Epson Printer we can print on Cd's.




How To Set-Up Digital Photoprinting Business

| 1 comments | Saturday, August 8, 2009

Opening up a digital photoprinting business could spend around Php. 100,000.00 (Philippine Peso) budget. First we need to look for a good location to put our business. the best locations are the one where people always go on and off. For example marketplace is one of a great location. Another one of the best location is renting inside a mall where people shops.

Items Needed for Starters

1 Computer Set (Good Speculations Recommended)
2 Computer Printers
1 Bluetooth Device and Infrared Device - (obsolete)
2 Card Readers (Multi Card Reader)
1 Internet Connection
1 Scanner
1 Software for Editing Picture (I'm using Adobe Photoshop)
1 Digital Camera

A COMPUTER SET with a good specification is the main thing you should buy because this will be the one receiving the images we will developed and all other programs we need are here.

2 PRINTERS - I recommend buying 2 printers to use at your shop so that you will not take longer time in developing. Any of the two could be you main printer and lets just say that the other one is a back up printer used when there are many customers or one of you customers wants his/her dozens of pictures to be developed. Customers also come unexpectedly so having some backup printers saves the day. I just want to remind that most of the customers are inpatient in waiting . Buy those printers having 6 cartridges above and get some CIS (continuos ink system) on them. Having CIS installed in your printer is the thriftiest thing you've ever done.


Bluetooth & Infrared Devices - Used as a connectivity of memory and cellular phones to the computer. having two kinds of multi card reader is recommended because there are too many kinds of memory car. Infrared is used on the old cellular phones that does not have bluetooth connectivity. NOTE: Infrared Device as of now is obsolete.


Internet Connection: Recommended for updating anti-virus on your computer because you will be facing all kind of virus in this business. Bluetooth and Card Readers are one of the many access points of Card Reader so I highly recommend having an Anti-virus on your computer.


Scanner - Some customers want their old pictures to be recopied and re sized into bigger one. Having a scanner is the key to satisfy their needs.


Software for Photo Editing - Recommended having one of these because this will be the one you will be using in resizing and editing pictures for example 1x1",2x2" and passport size pictures. The software is also used in enhancing the color and balance of the picture. (I am using Adobe Photoshop). There are many kinds of software to choose from so pick the one that suites you.

Digital Camera - Other customers keeps asking this question "Do you take pictures here?" so why dont buy digital camera. you don't need a place for studio, just a white cloth hanged in the wall to be used as a background is enough when you only have little space.


After Choosing a location and obtaining the items you can now start finding your employee. An employee with a wide knowledge in operating computer and knows how to use the photo editing software is the one to be hired.

Digital Photo Printing Business

Photo Printing Business is one of the fast growing business in our country (Philippines) today. How? Why? You may get a big question mark in your head because I told that it was a fast growing business. In the earlier days we could only use cameras using films and batteries to take a memorable picture and are once in a lifetime occasions. Now there are many easy, useful and thrifty ways to take and capture picture. These are digital cameras, Cellular Phone, I-pod, MP5 and many other more...

My cousin owns a Digital Photo Printing Business. We develop files from digital cameras, cellular phones and many other devices. I'm the one who manages the business and the one who set it up and I'll teach you in my next topic on how to set-up one of these business. We are using ink jet type of printers and one of the very best thing about this one is that customers will never ever wait for hours or days for the developing time. The developing period for one wallet size picture will only take 15 seconds. Yes seconds only and you can produce picture. And the good thing is its very thrifty.

Thanks for viewing Kapunapuna I hope you learned and enjoy while reading my blog.






How to Make 2x2 or 1x1 Picture

I've been reading and searching forums everyday and encountered these problem so many times. The problem is when people keeps asking on how to make 2x2 and 1x1 inches picture because most of them are starters and beginners in their photo printing business. They also keep asking for the best software to use in this kind of business...

Actually there so many softwares to choose from. Others are downloadable and is free of charge and some softwares are licensed to their respective owners. I'll mention some software that I have used before, these softwares are Corel, Glimps and Adobe Photoshop and etc.

From the softwares I mentioned above, I recommend using Adobe Photoshop and that software is the one I liked and loved the most ^^. If you havent heard of Adobe Photoshop before then simply open up your browser and search it on the internet. There are many websites that gives free tutorials to... So one question is answered.

Tutorial on how to make 2x2 and 1x1 inches picture using Adobe Photoshop

  1. Start by opening or running the program Adobe Photoshop (there many kind of photoshop versions and I'm currently using CS3 Extended).
  2. At the upper left of the software you can find FILE then choose NEW. (shortcut key is CTRL+N). By doing this a new window will appear.
  3. On the new window, change the width to 4 inches and the height to 6 inches. Also set the resolution to 300 pixels/inch, and the color mode to RGB color and click OK button.
  4. Now you just created your canvas with the size of 4 inches by 6 inches, the next thing to do is to open the picture you want to resize in 1x1 or 2x2 inches. Right click on the picture you want to resize; choose open with and then choose the program Adobe Photoshop. (the shortcut in opening the picture is by dragging the picture and dropping it inside the software).
  5. After opening the picture choose the crop tool (C), set the width and the height to 1 if you want to make 1x1 picture or set it to 2 if you need 2x2 pictures. you can set the height and the width in the upper part of the software.

6. After cropping we now have a 1x1 picture or 2x2 picture, now drag and drop the picture to
the canvas we made earlier. In a 4x6 inches canvas you can make 6pcs. of 2x2 inches picture
or 24 pcs. 1x1 picture on it, another option is that we can make a combination of 8pcs. 1x1
picture with 4 pcs. 2x2 picture.

7. Save you work into a JPEG format then print it using a pre-cut 4x6inches photo paper.
(I just want to remind that when your printing your work use a borderless setting. ) And your
done.


Deleted Files From the Memory Card

When we accidentally deleted important files from our memory card we all lose hope and keeps telling to ourselves "OMG!(Oh My God) what have I done"... We sure gets a headache especially when the one we deleted are the most important files like pictures or videos when someone died cause it could only happen once in a lifetime, also files used as evidences. Same thing happened to me a few days back when someone ask me to burn in the disk the important files and delete it but some errors occur...

I've searched so many tools and software to retrieve that file but nothing works... One day I found my solution when I browse the internet and got through this website that works well cause my memory card is at the same brand...

Precautions and NOT TO DO when deleted some important files:

1. DO NOT use the memory card

2. DO NOT delete another data in the memory card, doing so will replace the old deleted files with the new one.

You'll be needing the Model No. and the Serial Number Located at the back of the memory card

Just Download the file with the correct Model and Serial Number, Sit and wait for a while and that's it you've retrieve your deleted files... ^_^
