Best printers for greeting cards

Can anybody suggest a printer to buy in order to print greeting cards to a very professional standard, this is a small business, so only looking at short runs, but want the same quality that you would get if you were buying from a shop.

JustyB,

I've used an Epson Color Stylus 800 for cards in the past and am using an Epson Stylus Photo R800 at present for Christmas, Birthday, Aniversary and Valentine cards. The feed through path on Epsons is not to covoluted and I have used up to, and including, 300 gsm card.

Cards (A4 folded down to A5) take about 2-3 minutes to print out. Remember that you will probably need to use a paper insert for the inside of the card as you often cannot print on the reverse side of glossy card.

You will probable spend much more time designing the cards and personalising a Christmas card run than you will printing them.

Peter.

Epson sx535wd is worth a look.! My wife makes lots of cards and this one fits the bill for her. a great feature is that it prints both side of card. Its also wifi and can be situated away from the PC. Also it prints edge to edge, and borderless. Even better it costs only approx. £65 and incorporates a scanner and copier.
