“You can print from an iPhone®. It’s the dumbest thing.” – Bo Fahs, writer and host of Tele-Friends
From the moment we began to digitize our world, we created machines that worked tirelessly to pull all that information zooming around back to the physical world. Enter: the home printer.
Perhaps as payback for forming a nonsensical dichotomy, these printers couldn’t just work. Not without a fight, at least. No. They insisted on screeching at plane-like decibels, plopping out pages at an excruciatingly slow pace, streaking only the most important documents, and running out of ink when you know you JUST refilled the cartridge.
From the first consumer inkjet to more modern monstrosities,Sh*tty Printersbreaks down the worst offenders of our home offices. Featuring popular and exasperating home staples such as:
• TheHP Thinkjet 2225A • TheLexmark Z22 • The long forgottenCanon BJC-85 • and many more
Each printer is beautifully photographed and ruthlessly torn to shreds as their individual strengths, weaknesses, and charisma are scored on sliding scales born from relatable frustration.
