Event printers

I have been asked to cover a charity ball, to photograph folk as they arrive and have prints ready for when they leave.
I have done this in the past but using a local lab to produce the prints.
I need advice on workflow and printer as I did it a very long time ago when we used something called film

Re: Event printers

I think dye sub printers are popular for this sort of thing. I've got an A6 HiTi and whilst I don't use it much now, the results are quite good. There are bigger than A6 dye subs made.

The prints are physically very robust - you can spill coffee or tea on them, wipe them on your jeans and they're as good as new.

Re: Event printers

If you're shooting Jpegs and get it right in camera, how about something like a Kodak 5300? Prints straight off the card onto either 6x4 or A4, with cheap carts and surprisingly good quality. No 'puter needed.
