How to stack print with "cheaper" printer? (InDesign/Color printer Laser)
Posted on 2006-06-09
We are now and then printing catalogs. Currently using an old HP CLJ 4500. The catalog itself is made up of several InDesign documents due to size constraints. It is simply too cumbersome to handle everyting in one document due to the size of the pages (a lot of color graphics).
Now to the problem, it's a pain sorting out the pages after each print. I have to basically sort every single paper afterwards to make up the individual catalogs which is incredibly time consuming.
As we are looking to buy a new printer this year I was wondering whether there is any smart solutions for this. The real stacking printers are way too expensive (>6000$), our budget would be <2000€. I've seen some descriptions for printers that can insert a blank paper between different prints although I don't actually understand what that means.
Anyways this problem must be as old as herpes so I thought someone here could help out.
