100 Sheets A4 160gsm White Card - Premium Thick Printing Paper Suitable for All Printers
About this deal
There aren’t any cheaper models I can recommend I am afraid as the maximum media handling weight for smaller models is 250gsm.
I was thinking about a Canon Pixma Pro 100S (i don’t know what the difference is with a 10S) or an Epson Ecotank EP 7700.The print size also matters, for instance, large movie posters may need to be a heavier material so they are easier to install. We will also show you how you can choose the correct GSM paper so your project is cost-effective as well as how to avoid some common pitfalls. Please can you recommend a printer for me that will print waterproof labels as these would obviously be refrigerated?
A4 laser machines can generally only take 220gsm paper, the exception to this is the higher end OKI a4 range – C612/C712 – which can take up to 250gsm. I have a SOHO and I need a multifunctional laser printer that can print on textured card that has 220 gsm.html– anything lower than this would be rated at 255gsm or less and so would not be suitable for card printing.
It’s possible that some may work, but there is no way to be sure nor can we make a recommendation for any as it is outside of the manufacturer specification. Xerox’s Versalink C8000DT and C9000DT will be a great option as some of these models allow for printing up to 350gsm. Unfortunately no, the machine has a bypass tray that feeds from the front but the paper still exits at the top meaning it is a soft ‘U’ as opposed to an ‘S’ shape feed path, meaning it bends less.
Also, the print speed is very slow and so this would really preclude them from making large numbers of packaging, plus the cost would be high due to the large number of inks they require. It's just a regular copy paper but a little bit heavier than other brands, which makes it ideal for inkjet printers. I have the Canon pro-1 but it prints text extremely slowly on the uncoated paper and makes grooves on the front (thanks to the rollers).
