Printing on heavy card
Our DT department are having a lot of problems printing onto A3 heavy card (which they later cut up on a camm1 and fold into little boxes). They currently use an oki A3 laser, which doesn’t handle the 280gsm paper well (if at all).
I’ve tried the obvious suggestion of using a slightly lighter paper – it just falls on deaf ears.
Does anyone have any success stories with a particular printer or can suggest a printer that will handle 280gsm card without a hitch?
Have you tried the bypass tray on a photocopier? This should be possible.
Thanks yes, printing to our main colour copier is the current backup plan; which works well (up to 300gsm). The copier however is in another block across the school, so not ideal long term.
I was hoping to avoid having to get another copier lease but from my research it's looking like it might have to be that way.
Also toying with trying an inkjet but would rather not.
Does anyone have any experience with the Canon PIXMA iX7000?
I’d rather not use an inkjet but this printer does claim to handle 300gsm (using cannon special media, whatever that may be)
