    Laser Printer Info Required

    Laser Printer Info Required 29th Sep 16 at 11:09 AM
    OK - one for you digital creatives out there. I'm either looking for the info I need here, or a link to somewhere I might be able to find it:

    I am looking for a reasonably priced (not dirt cheap and nasty) printer that has the following features:

    Mono Laser Printer
    Straight through Paper Path
    Must be able to print onto Card up to 300GSM
    Duplex Printing

    I've been trying to find one but the sticking point appears to be the card weight. If anyone on here is in the know, that would be fantastic!

    Thank you.

    The Xerox range should be able to do what you want but they can be expensive

    duplex is difficult if not impossible on a straight through print, as the machine needs to flip the paper over to print both sides, this is normally done by rollers within the machine. On my laser you have to flip the paper manually and feed it back through, it doesn't do a straight through print though.

    I've seen Lasers that have a standard wrap-around path with duplex plus a tray for straight through printing; where I'm having trouble is finding one that reliably print onto card.

    This is exactly the problem I am trying to find the answer to, as yet I haven’t found the answer. All the laser printers I have looked at seem to be limited to 220gms. Did you find a suitable one back in 2016?
