Kodak Easyshare 5500Press release:
KODAK EASYSHARE All-in-One Printers will enable consumers to affordably
print crisp, sharp documents and KODAK lab-quality photos at home using
premium, pigment-based inks that will save consumers up to 50 percent
on everything they print. The two new printers provide ultimate levels
of print quality and ease-of-use, while offering low total cost of
ownership compared to other leading consumer inkjet printers on the
"After today, the inkjet market will never be the
said Antonio M. Perez, Chairman and Chief Executive
Officer, Eastman Kodak Company. "We are changing the rules in
this industry to ensure that consumers can affordably print what they
want, when they want, easily and at the high level of Kodak quality
they've come to expect."
"For far too long, people have felt restrained from printing
due to the high cost of ink,"
Perez said. "Our new
system gives consumers the freedom to print documents and photos
frequently, easily and affordably with exceptional quality that lasts a
lifetime under typical home display conditions. Our extensive history
in printing, combined with our legendary dedication to the consumer,
puts us in a unique position to revolutionise inkjet printing."
Finally - Inks for People Who Like to Print
The KODAK EASYSHARE AiO Printers use Kodak's premium, pigment-based
ink, priced at £6.99 for a cartridge of black ink and
£9.99 for a five-ink colour cartridge (RRP). For every
£10 spent on colour ink and £7 spent on black ink,
consumers can print the same number of pages at half the cost of other
consumer inkjet printers. When the KODAK Photo Value Pack is purchased,
a 4 x 6-inch photo costs as little as 7 pence per print.
According to a study by InfoTrends, the greatest obstacle to printing
at home is the cost of ink and supplies. "For years, the high
price of inkjet cartridges has kept consumers from freely using their
said Perez. "With the most
affordable premium ink ever, families can now create crisp documents
and Kodak lab-quality photos at home."
