All paper stock has a "pound" rating. Get your cardstock poundage and then check the specs on the printers under consideration.
Be aware that consumer printers that don't do photos will likely not be in the usual store shelves. I also see multifunction printers for under 99 bucks that last about 2 years. Why isn't that aceptable?
In closing I set up the office and home with the HP k550. For scanning we use a scanner.
I want a copier/printer preferably.
I will be using it mainly for printing text and copying text for homeschooling purposes (one child).
I'd like it to be able to:
handle occasional cardstock sheets from printing or copying
one ink cartridge fairly cheap (obviously color is optional)
I need the printer to be fairly inexpensive as well. Max $170! And I don't want to have to replace the ink cartridge ALL the TIME. It won't get a ton of use but a fair amount.
I have Windows XP if that helps any.
I have reviewed a few different printers and can not decide between the HP Laserjet P1005 (which is not a copier) Or one of the All-in-One
Canon Pixma MP520 or MP610.
i don't really have use for photo printing since I send all that off to be done. So the all-in-ones seem like a waste of Money to me.
So any other suggestions for me? Anyone? Thank you very much in advance!!
