General query about PostScript printer

I need a printer that will work with my PostScript fonts.  Is read somewhere about a utility called GoScript that will allow non-PS printer to do what I need.  Does anyone have experience with GoScript?  Are there any other solutions?  Or do need to resign myself (sigh) to having to shell out extra $ for a PS printer.  

I *want* to get a laser but may have to get an inkjet for color.

The utility you're thinking of is GhostScript. http://www.ghostscript.com/

It's worth trying, since it won't cost you anything. I haven't used it personally for quite some time, but when I did use it, it worked great.

If you're thinking of getting a new printer, and need one that is color and postscript compatible, why don't you take a look at the business color inkjets on HP's shopping page.

They got one with PS built-in for only $599.  (A lot cheaper than a similar color laser...)  The Business InkJet 2280.

Or take a look at the DJ 1220/ps.  A wide format 11x17 (super B) printer that has PS emulation.  Again an inkjet, but it's only $499.
