    Hi ladies!

     

    I'm printer shopping this weekend. I've gotten away with not having a printer for a long time because I've always used my job for printing. I recently changed jobs, and printing is a little harder at the new place.

     

    I am a graphic designer so I am a bit picky, but would love to hear what kind of printer all of you ladies have had luck with for your wedding stationery.

     

    I welcome all suggestions. :)

        Great thread! I just joined this forum today, I hope it's not too late for a May 2014 wedding. So many amazing ideas on here. I was just thinking about this myself and wondering what printer I should get if I wanted to do my own invitations. Will be following, hope we get some replies!

            Didn't end up purchasing a printer just yet. Still shopping around. I'll post some of my options here in the next few days.

                  Hey ladies, if you're still in the market for a printer, I just purchased this one from Walmart. It's $30 and you can choose a 8gb usb drive or pack of paper. I opted for the paper. Just know that the printer does not come with a cable to connect to your computer, but that's normal for most printers. If you spend $45 it's free shipping to home! I don't have a Walmart conveniently located around me, would have to drive there so that's a great option. Just added a few other home items that I needed anyway =) Many brides on the forum recommend the Canon pixma higher end models I think the mx892? But I'm hoping this one will still get the job done. http://www.walmart.c...ner=lw9MynSeamY

                  There are lots of threads on this topic (I started one myself about a year ago, here it is: http://www.bestdesti...r-diy-projects) and another bride recommended the Canon Pixma MX892. That's what I ended up getting and it was awesome! I can recommend! Good luck with whatever you choose though. :)

                    I plan to do alot of the DIY ideas to include my own printing. I have a laser jet printer at work that I can hopefully use. It is only a black and white but so things will not need color. I do recommend that you use a laser printer, although more experience, the print quality is much better.
