Superb digital prints can be obtained using your own or professional services. A good quality ink jet printer using a minimum of two original ink cartridges (preferable more) and high quality ink jet paper can give excellent results. Even though it is more expensive, the best results usually come by using the original inks and paper as manufactured by the maker of the printer used.

Digital printing services are also available from almost all photo processing labs now as well.
