Printer suitable for heavier paper


#1
I hope someone will be able to help me. I am not a professional graphic artist, but I like to print my own cards, and at Christmas I do a big run (for me) and this year my printer could take no more, does anyone know of a printer under £200 ie not a professional printer that can take up to 220 gsm and preferably good ink? any info greatly appreciated.

Ideally you need a top feeding printer (or one capable of back feeding). Front/tray loading machines such as the newer range of epson all in one's are useless as they have to bend the paper stock through a full 180º meaning that anything over 200gsm is out the window.
