Those numbers match my calculations as well. And that is for OEM ink. Add paper cost and then factor in the ability to take full control of your creative process and explore paper choices.

I have a chart of printing costs based on size and paper, but basicly it is 8x10s about a buck for ink, 11x14 and 11x17 between $1.50 and $2.00 per, and 13x19 about $2.70 each.
