Inkjet printer for cards

  iscanut 11:10 05 Dec 2009

I have a Canon IP4500 which seems to have problems when printing onto paper or card in excess of 105gsm. Can anyone recommend a printer that will happily take thicker media such as 120 gsm or slightly above and also postcard/greeting card thickness.

Can cope with 240 GSM card/Art paper/photo glossy/canvas with no problems.

I use an Epson D92 which copes perfectly well with 180gm double sided greeting card paper. Its not a current model but I'm sure a similar model would cope.

Thanks BT & looks as if there are very few of you out there who do not use anything other than standard paper !

I have an oldish Epson 895, and I regularly print on coated card of 230 gsm without any problem. I have even used 300 gsm on occasions.

Don`t know about newer models, but it seems possible they will too. On mine I can lower the printing head to accommodate the thicker card.

I have an HP 2210 All in One (now quite old) and it manages 160gsm with ease.

Thanks to all who have responded, but I am trying to source a current model rather than an older one. All the specs I look at state what size media the printer will take, but no mention of paper or card weight.

"On mine I can lower the printing head to accommodate the thicker card". Of course I should have said RAISE the printing head.

Have a word with Epson about their current models: 0871 4237766
