    I have a 3 in 1 HP as well (inkjet) and it worked great for my STDs but they were on regular cardstock.  I am nervous about using it for my metallic carstock because I have heard it doesn't work very well since the metallic won't absord the ink properly like regular paper/cardstock.  Just a thought if you are planning on using metallic cardstock for anything!

      super helpful thread.  I was just shopping around on bestbuy for a new printer.  I have one from my work that only prints in black and white.

       

      I am on the hunt for an Epson or HP... wireless and probably laser....though I am not sure if I will bother with mettallic cardstock or not...

       

      thanks ladies!

        We have an HP ink jet (even though it is called a laser jet *shurgs) yet anyhow, it prints wonderfully!! We got it at Best Buy for $90 when our LexMark decided it didn't want to be part of our home wireless network, oh well, it's lost :)

          This is the printer that we bought for all of our wedding printing: http://www.bestbuy.c...6&skuId=1200906.

           

          It served us well. We used it for

          registry cards

          recipient address labels for the wedding invitations

          shower invitations

          return address labels for the shower invitations

          recipient address labels for the shower invitations

          shower thank you cards

          return address labels for the shower thank you cards

          recipient address labels for the shower thank you cards

          programs

          welcome letters

           

          I am not as technically knowledgeable as some of these ladies, but I would recommend a printer with a scanner. We scanned the icon from our ordered wedding invitations and used it on some of our DIY projects. I'm def glad we had the scanner.
