Color printer


I need to know which printers can print in color and be able to print 70lbs stock paper.

Joe V.

I have researched this extensively so if you answer with a printer that can't do it, don't expect to get any points.

I think the HP 5si's can do it.. we have them at work (USPS) and we had to buy them to print on Cardstock. I forget exactly what stock the paper is, but I'm sure it's at least 70lbs.. The salesman basicly told us that it'd take just about anything we'd feed it.. They were right too hehe..
SORRY SORRY SORRY! Please reject this answer.. I just saw the 70lbs and answered quickly.. never even looked at the COLOR part, OOPS sorry.

Thats alright.  I already new that most color HP can't handle 70lbs stock paper.

I don't have a clear answer. I can tell you that the Miltola color laser seems to be winning the bang for the buck awards...

If alps does a ink based color of the same design of the Allegro series in Dot matrix, that would print on anything you could fit under the hood, as it was flat bed with the heads flying back and forth under a sky bridge.....

I'm pretty sure that the HP 1000 series will be able to handle anything you put into it. Take a look at it:

DeskJet 1000Cxi | DeskJet 1000Cse (C2673A | C2670A )
                   Print everything from postcards to posters.


Hope this helps!

My problem is that we have 2 hp colorjets here that can't do the job.  I know that if I were to ask HP if there printers can do it they would say yes (because thats what they said about the 2 we already have).  I kneed to know which printers can definetly print color on 70lbs stock paper.  If you know for sure that this HP you recommended can do it than repost that answer and I'll give you the points.  Otherwise I can't except that answer.  I do not have time to go out and buy printers until I find the right one.

The new CANON bubblejet 7000 series will.  Thats the Australian model anyway.  Prints on really heavy stock, and is fairly fast.  I saw a demo last week - printed on white corrigated cardboard - in photo quality !
