can you clarify?

you want to print on black colored paper, and your inkjet printer should be able to print with white and green inks.

is this correct?

As you obviously don't have the paper yet, I think you'd be better off to print green and black on white paper. Black ink or toner is not very expensive, and white costs nothing. All in all, that will be much cheaper than buying a special printer and special inks, to print on expensive black paper.

Most inkjets will not work with pigment based ink (which white has to be, in order to cover the black), and there is no white toner for lasers.
Plug and play, no additional software required!

go for a HP color laser - that will keep costs down.

Original toner is cheap, and if you go for refilling and after market manufacturers, costs will plummet further.

going the inkjet way will reduce the cost of your printer, but paper cost will increase many-fold, as normal paper stickers (for lasers) is unsuitable for inkjets.

have a look at this page:

i would recommend the CP1510 series. i have good experience with that series.

Definitely go for a laser, inkjets are slow and cost a lot to print. Apart from HP, also look at Samsung; their consumables are very well priced. On the other hand, with an HP you are more likely to get refills.
