Ink Jet that will print heavier papers

by deborah930 / April 2, 2005 12:25 AM PST

I am looking for an ink jet printer that will print papers heavier than 28 lbs. I now have a Canon MP 730 multipass and have had to replace the printerhead THREE times because of streaks in my image printing. I will sometimes have to print on paper that is 60 to 80 lbs. (light cardstock or PHOTOPAPER is 60#) The tech at Canon suggested that I get another printer recommending the IP 5000.

Has anyone had this problem and can lead me in the right direction?
