Printer that will take 250 / 300gsm card

  The Special One 16:28 29 Mar 2010

Can anyone recommend a reasonably priced printer (around £50 or less) that will take card between 250 & 300gsm. I make greetings cards & desperately need a machine that won't "mash" my card - Thank you!

.......are you really sure you need anything like 250gm paper?

Assuming you won't be doing more than the odd print or two anyway.
Most printer manufacturers err on the cautious side.

Depending on the size of the finished card, I occasionally print a front and a back and then using something like 3M Spray Mount, stick them back to back.
Fold the result and trim off any not-quite-accurate edges.

How about the sort of printer which will print on CDs?
I don't know if any have a full flat path?

In particular those that are top feed.
Bottom feed- HP- could be problematic due to the complex feed path.

I use 210g card to print program cards for our club and have no trouble at all using my Epson stylus photo R300. printer. Back fead as suggested earlier. I am sure that it would take heavier card if needed.
