I believe this is the printer that my dad bought and it prints photos extremely well. In fact, he said "Unless I need a specific size, I'm just going to use this thing."
CPU: (Intel)q9450@3.36GHz|1.4v
Power Supply: (Antec)BP550|550w
GFX Card: (PNY)GTX 460|800-1600-4000 biggest GTX 460 dud OCer
Motherboard: (Gigabyte)P35-DS3R |P35|
Memory: (Mushkin) Redline 2x2GB DDR2 1000|1050MHz 5-5-5-12|
Ayn Rand is the author for people who want to act like complete douche-bags, but don't have the balls to just admit that they are douche-bags.
"There are two novels that can change a bookish fourteen-year old's life: The Lord of the Rings and Atlas Shrugged. One is a childish fantasy that often engenders a lifelong obsession with its unbelievable heroes, leading to an emotionally stunted, socially crippled adulthood, unable to deal with the real world. The other, of course, involves orcs."

in my honest opinion, I would use a printing service. Even places like Costco can get you great prices on prints and other things you cant get with a regular printer. The best part is no up front cost and the extremely high price of buying ink paper calibrators and just making the thing work. I think the T2i is a great camera to start out with (as I had the XSi for 2 years and absolutely loved it!) but I would get a better lens down the road, its amazing what you can get with something used.

Hope this helped :)
