I need more cards, I do have a local printer who does an ok job, but he is very limited on how he does the cards. I want a more dynamic look and my images to fill the cards rather than have a large white border. So I wanted to look at options for printing them myself. I know I can go to Moo, or other online printers and also there is an option for other local printer and I wont rule them out at all, but I would love to be able to print what I want, when I want and how I want....
I spoke to Mr WD about inks and printers and we looked at recommendations and actually decided that as printers go our HP printer probably was ok to at least experiment with and decide on paper and designs. So I bought some card stock and updated my Photoshop package and so was set to go.
AAAAAARRRRRRGGGGGHHHHHHHHH its not that easy. I have discovered the biggest problem with HP printers.........Paper feed. The printer can't cope with 300gm card as it has to turn it around a roller and there is no manual feed option. I have taken the back off and tried to feed it through but its just not going to happen and if I could get it to work its just not worth sitting there for ages to feed it all through.
Back to the drawing board and decide it its worth investing in a new printer, stick with my current local printer or look for a new print company??
Why is nothing straight forward??
