What printers, if any, will print wallet-size or 3" by 5" photos as well as the standard sized 5" by 7", 8" by 10" and larger? Can such printers also do a good job on text? (Most of the printer specifications that I've come across indicate that 4" by 6'' is the smallest size, so that I would have to use software to get wallet size or 3" by 5" size).

Any decent printer will be able to print 3 x 5 photos. You would just print several of them on a single sheet of paper, then cut them (the way they come when you order traditional prints). What you would want to look for would be something that has a high resolution so the smaller pictures will look good close up.

I've seen something to the effect that 3" x 5" paper exists, and I'm interested in printers that will do a good job of printing both text and photos directly onto 3" x 5" paper and that will also print onto the numerous kinds of paper of standard size that most printers accommodate. Printer specifications that I've come across indicate that 4" x 6" paper is the smallest of the sizes that various printers will accommodate.

Here are some printers that can print on 3" x 5" paper. Since quality is mostly a matter of opinion, you'd be best off going to a major office store that carries these printers and looking at some sample prints.

HP DesignJet 10PS
HP DJ5150
HP DJ3650
Lexmark X5150
Epson Stylus Photo 820

There's also the Konica Minolta magicolor 3300 color laser which does 3.5 x 5.5.
