Isn't ink what makes it look great? My short stint working with an owner of a print shop had me learning a lot about the print business. Saving ink is not the goal when it comes to a great looking print.
Have you worked with or in a print shop yet? It may help you understand that ink jets are nice but not what the shops use all the time.
Hello-I just started a new custom design stationery and invitation business. I have been taking them to a printer (files created in Photoshop and InDesign) and having them printed on 100lb cover, but I'm interested in printing them myself and trimming them at home. Any suggestions on a solid printer that has high resolution, double-sided printing, can handle 100lb cover stock in 8.5 x 11? I'm willing to spend up to $5,000 for the right product, but don't want to invest in a home printer unless the quality is excellent and run through huge amounts of ink. Thank you for your input!
