Printing on dark cardstock

Nov 21, 2018
Hi, first time poster looking for some advice!

I'm having trouble printing onto burgendy cardstock. I'm wanting to acheive a nice vibrant gold print (think UK passport) but the best I can get is a dark yellow.

Cardstock is 220gsm so fits my printer. The printer I'm using is an OKI C532dn laser jet printer. Admittedly, I mainly print onto light coloured card and the printer has been perfect in doing this.

I tried adding a burgendy background to my design (read online this may help) which did improve the print slightly but long term that would not be a viable option due to the extra toner used in creating the background.

Is this a limitation on the printer?

I have money to be able to purchase an alternative printer, if needed. I was thinking of the Canon Pixma Pro - 100 but I'm not sure if this printer would achieve the vibrant gold on dark cardstock either?!

Any advice massively appreciated!
