    Hi all, first post here! I'm looking for advice. I have started a stationery business and am looking for a printer which I can print my card designs on. I need it to be able to cope with thick, textured card (in the 400gsm range), and one which can print in a variety of colours, including neons. I'm based in the UK and would be happy spending around £500 but I can go to £1000 for something amazing. Thank you for reading!

    I'm looking for the same advice, and need an a3 printer for art prints.
    So far I've narrowed it down to a Canon PIXMA for breath of colour.

    Canon PIXMA iX6850 Wireless A3 Inkjet Printer
    Great price at £150 :)
    9600 x 2400 dpi :)
    6 ink cartridges :|

    Canon PIXMA PRO-100s Wireless A3 Photo Inkjet Printer
    £350 :|
    4800 x 2400 dpi :|
    8 ink cartridges :)

    Cant make my mind up, any advice very welcome, I need to buy soon.

    I need advice on this also. My paper is less than a mm thick and my basic HP can't handle it unless I hand feed it at exactly the right speed. PITA and waste of paper in ink. Does no one print to postcard paper at home? Is there no home solution for this purpose or do I gotta spend hundreds of dollars on a printer? I hope not.
