A printer to print 160gm card?

  1936 14:49 15 Aug 2008

I have a Samsung ML 6040 and a Canon Pixma but neither are really up to doiing what I want to which is print some club permits for my angling club using 160gm card.
Doea anyone have any sugestions?

As these permits require to be robust (I would expect) how about printing on a fairly standard weight paper and then laminating?

You can get a laminater fairly cheaply, most likely less than a cost of a reasonable printer.

If you go this route, I would suggest hot laminating as this wears better than cold.

€dstowe's laminating idea is a good one - Angling! - doesn't matter if they get wet .... LoL

Then you need to chuck it and get a Epson, I print 260gm and have done all my Epsons and just thick card. Can shove shoo box card through it

€dstowe. I will be printing about 400 so laminating them would not be cost effective.

Woodchip, you say that you use an Epson to print 260gm. Could you say which one?

My Epson printer R220 prints 160gm and 180gm no problem.

I don't have any 260gm paper so cannot confirm if it will print on that paper.

I don't see any reason why it should not print on to 260gm paper.

I used to use a 680 that did them all I now have a RX 620 Multifunction that prints them. I think you will find that all epson Printers will print on thick card

Cope with Ilford Galarie 240gsm
and Canvas at 280 gsm no problem

As the print out is Inkjet water soluble- which I guess will have a short life with fishermen
if you are not going to laminate, then at least some clear lacquer aerosol spray

Better still get a Laser, they will then be waterproof

they will then be waterproof

The print wont run Woody but the card will get soggy and fall off the print ;-}
