    Printers for small card stock and envelopes 11th Jun 19 at 10:34 AM
    I'm running a project where we are printing on a lot of 10x6cm media (card and minature envelopes). We are manually feeding them through our Epson Workforce printer by attaching several to a piece of paper to take them through, as they are so small without the guide paper they don't fall within the rollers/paper detect switches and just disappear in the printer.

    They print perfectly this way, but it's a very slow process attaching several with low tack glue/tape to print, then peeling them off and repeating the process over and over.

    Are there any good printers which can take small/odd shaped stock like this, each set is personalised so we can't just get a batch professionally printed.

    Have you looked into photo printers? These quite often have small size paper handling.

    Also could you use labels for the envelopes instead of printing directly?

    Yes, thank-you. I've had a look, but none officially support such small sizes, the smallest most cater for is 6" x 4".

    Printing has to be direct onto the envelopes, part of the eco requirement of the project!

    Will keep looking...
