Hi,

I need to print business cards with unique coupon codes on them, so i can't bulk order them.

I also want to add other details to them as i need them.

I need to be able to print on both sides too.

I am struggling to find a printer that will do this. Does anyone have any recommendations?

Thanks in advance for your help.

I print business cards on Avery business card stock and it works great . If you can put the coupon in the card layout software, then Avery will work for you.

John beats me to it yet again!

I was about to suggest the same thing!

only thing to add is the double sided printers from Brother (like MFC-J870DW or HL-2240D) work well for the double sided aspect of your request!

You don't mention whether you prefer ink-jet or laser type, but Brother has many inexpensive models that support Duplex printing quite nicely!

Most printers will not duplex on anything over 100gsm, most only gong to 80gsm. Card stock is way too heavy for automatic duplexing. It will need to be fed from the bypass tray, and both sides will need to be printed individually.

I used Avery Stock on an HP812C printer and using Publisher.

Print side one, turn the stock over and print side two. Works great.

I have printed similar stock on my HP 8610.
