Searching reveals this is talked about a lot here. So much discussion
is a little confusing so I'd be grateful for some up-to-the-minute
advice and recommendations from people who've tried a few printers and
are happy with what they now use. Also for a little laser vs inkjet vs
anything else instruction.
We need to be able to print everyday stuff as well as, frequently, onto
heavier card (usually recycled matt finish) at 300 g/sm or heavier. If
things go well we'll be printing medium to large quantiies onto card.
We use Macintosh computers.
What does 'medium to large' quantities mean?
10 a day? 100 a day? 1000 a day?
Is this going to be mono or colour?
I'm not sure there's too much in the laser category that can do this thickness in the sub £500 range. Often they will go up to 105 gsm out of a main input tray and might allow up to 165 (some seem to go to about 200/220 but I think thats about it) from a side tray that can only take a few or maybe only one sheet manually fed at a time. Mine can go up to 256 gsm but it doesnt want more than 20 sheets at a time in the tray at that thickness.
Somewhere or other on Xerox's UK site I found a thing for them to send me some sample card and I have a pack of Colotech paper of varying thicknesses 10 sheets of each, 90s, 160 gsm 220 and 300. I would have thought the 220 would be thick enough for most things, about the only thing I can think of that would need much more would probably be business cards, but if you were getting into printing them properly I would get a real printer that is up to that job.
