Studio printer recommendation timeAlex (397 pencils) | Tue, 2012-07-10 15:17
It's that time again when the ol' trusty printer clogs (for the last time) and stutters its final line down the page.
I usually work from my small, one-man, studio and am looking for a printer to handle everything from rough proofing to presentable artwork (and the occasional marketing piece). I'm more-or-less paperless, business-wise so don't need to print accounts, spreadsheets, etc.
Photo-quality printing is essential.
The ability to run archival quality inks/paper through it would be a very nice to have, though not an essential (I illustrate and find it unfeasible to run out very short runs commercially).
A3 would also be the ideal size, though a good A4 would do the job at a push.
Wireless printing is also a nice-to-have rather than an essential (it is a small studio).
The problem I'm finding is that the market seems saturated with 'all in one' models - which do three things badly rather than one thing well - and with slight variants of the same model.
I'm looking to find out which office/studio printers other people here use, and whether you'd recommend them. And any tips for finding the right one would be very handy!
Thanks for any advice, tips (or ink-price horror stories) you can give.
