Printing greeting cards

by lhaday / November 24, 2009 11:49 PM PST

I create all-occasion greeting cards for my own personal use. I currently use an Epson Stylus Color 980 but it has seen better days. I'm now having problems with it feeding the heavy matte paper. Any suggestions on a printer with good color quality and resolution that will print on paper but not be too terribly expensive...say under $300?

That's very nice. Greeting cards always eliminate differences between us.

Hey lhaday

In our opinion any HP printer does a superb job, HP designs their printer on the purpose of graphic design and a most of them are under $300 any photosmart model will work with heavy matte paper ok I hope this helps

Kodak's the way to go!

Hey lhaday,

I would suggest a new Kodak ESP Office 6150. They run about $230 and produce great quality images (since they are made for primarily printing pictures. Check it out! Hope this helps!

Go for a lexmark or brother printer.They are economical as well as last longer.
