    Cheap cheap cheap black printer for low volume envelopes

    In a pinch we have used an Epson Workforce Inkjet to knock out a small envelope run here and there. I don't think I would ever really recommend an inkjet we just happen to have it around for scanning and got desperate enough to try it. Do you not have any production or office laser printers? I...

    Are you visiting Printing United 2022? Why?

    As far as I know that HP cannot print on anything rigid. The max gsm is 200gsm unless I am misunderstanding something. file://server2022/d/Allfiles/1%20Temps/522831-Datasheet-EN.PDF

    Next printer advice please 🙏🏻

    I echo what some others have said. You need to step up to a machine that is more in the realm of light production or production that has curl control. With my Canon C700 I never really even have to worry about curl. The only time I notice it is when I have told the machine the wrong paper I am...

    Xerox Versant 180 vs Ricoh C7200

    @mongoose Just wondering what shut you down on the Canon? I run a C700 a bit older model and I am impressed with the wide gamut of run-ability on the things you mentioned minus the 16Pt and above stock. Envelopes (with kit)(not the small ones), carbonless, coated/uncoated, synthetics and what...

    Anyone know if this is inkjet?

    @Alois Senefelder I haven't seen or heard of such a setup but I would be thinking the finishing would all be inline and straight to palletizing like a big web press. Maybe that doesn't exist but that was my thought.

    Anyone know if this is inkjet?

    Here are some new images I took. I am voting for some kind of high volume roll to roll inkjet. I'd imagine such a machine would have stationary heads but some of the lines I am seeing that look like sweep lines are things that I have only seen in inkjet. Something like a memjet type of...

    Matte/Uncoated Finish

    @bill kahny Do you know if that would be true of the C700 as well? Do you know the behind the scenes settings that change the gloss level? On my C700 there is gloss optimization and all that. There is a more glossy finish when I use a coated setting vs uncoated as far as paper profile goes but...

    Anyone know if this is inkjet?

    @gordo I'll have to do that tomorrow but it is certainly stochastic and not a normal line screen, that's what caught my eye to start. I'm 37, I can still see it without a loop ;-)

    Matte/Uncoated Finish

    I meant model to model overall not really gloss to gloss. Does it compare more to a Canon 10000 vs the Canon C810?

    Anyone know if this is inkjet?

    @Magnus59 That's a new one for me :-) I had to look it up. Looks possible. I am going to refer to it as "roto" to sound like I know something next time it comes up ;-)

    Matte/Uncoated Finish

    Thanks for that info. Do you know the comparable models in the world of Xerox, Canon, or Konica? I am not too familiar with production Ricoh machines.

    Matte/Uncoated Finish

    No problem, thanks for the clarification. So you are saying out of the gate this machine shines (pun intended) at having the most offset like look in your experience? You actually need to engage the gloss setting is you want it to match coated finishes?

    Matte/Uncoated Finish

    Did you mean 10 variations of the machine or the C7200 series has 10 variations of finishes when printing?

    Anyone know if this is inkjet?

    @Alois Senefelder, that is one of the reasons I'd be so surprised, one the quality that looks offset and two for it to be affordable. About 94 pages cover is slightly heavier than the guts but it's probably lighter than 65lb. cover. Distibution is probably every Amazon Prime member in the U.S...

    Matte/Uncoated Finish

    Who has the best game in town for a mid-range production copier that can look most like offset on uncoated stock? I love the finish of the Indigo of course but the price and cost of operation is out of my league. Are there any dry toners out there with relative success?
