Infrequently used printers

This is probably a bit off topic, so I hope nobody objects to me
discussing it here.
I have an Epson Stylus Photo 950 that's been working faithfully ever
since I bought it however many years ago it was. I think my problem with
it is that it doesn't get used enough, so it's normally good enough for
my son to print some homework but whenever I need to print a photo it
just isn't working right due to some blocked jets. Yesterday it was
being a total PITA. I only wanted to print a 10x15cm sheet for some
passport photos but would it work? No. After I don't know how many
cleaning cycles and a new cartridge I gave up and took the file to Asda
Walmart and got it done for 35 pence.
Now, I reckon that the root of the problem is that it doesn't get used
often enough so the liquid ink dries and blocks the jets. So, I'm
thinking, would it be a good idea to ditch the inkjet, get a small
colour laser printer (I'm looking at, for instance, a Samsung CLP-320)
for document printing, and just take photo files to a shop for printing?
My reasoning is that because a laser printer's toner is a dry powder
anyway, there's nothing to get dried out and cause the problems I'm
experiencing with the inkjet.
Can anybody with relevant experience of laser printers please enlighten
