Printer for DIY Invitations

I have been debating on whether or not to print my own invites and I think I am going to try it. I will def need to get a new printer. Has anyone used one that they would recommend? There are so many choices out there and I don't want to buy one and then ending up hating it, it not print the way I want, etc. TIA

    Another option might be taking your file to Staples and having them print on a color printer, or having it done by a local printer, or going through someone like cardsandpockets.com. A color laser really looks best and they can be expensive.

    I have a home business that relies heavily on me being able to print things clearly and professionally.  I have a Canon Pixma MP 620 and absolutely LOVE it!  Several ladies on the DIY board have it and love it as well.  It's an inkjet but it absolutely blows me away with the quality (for an inkjet, anyway.)I've done magnetic STD's on glossy magnet paper, printed on textured cardstock, vellum, tissue paper (taped to cardstock), and various weights of "regular" paper and haven't had a single problem.

    My printer died half way thru making mine so I did some quick research and found this:  http://www.shopping.hp.com/product/printer/Officejet/1/storefronts/CB815A%2523B1HI love love it!  I was able to get it at best buy for $139.00 since they do competitive pricing - I had a BJs add in hand when I went.

    I just did mine last week & they turned out great.  I have an older model HP but have always been a fan of HP so my guess is that any of their officejet products will treat you right :-)
