    Hi Patsy. I have an Epson photo PX710W but as it is front loading it won't take card stock. I therefore bought a second printer recently - a Canon MP230 which is a top loader. Takes card beautifully. I didn't mind getting a second printer as it was only around 30 from Staples and I only use it for card so the ink lasts a long time for me. From all the blogs I read before I bought it, I think front loaders are a non-starter if you want it to take heavy card. Hope this helps.

    I have an HP Envy in white and whilst it looks the part, it doesn't print decent weight cardstock and the front loading tray is very flimsy. I don't think for one moment it will last anywhere near the amount of time my last printer did.

    I have a samsung laser printer which I use all the time but my inkjet is canon, pretty ancient now but has always been excellent. The actual inks are really good and I try to stick with them.

    Hello Marilyn xx.
    It's actually both, the 3 colours and also a black toner cartridge. I have used it a massive amount over many years and not had to refill. It's also wifi which is brilliant! Bought at a good price from Amazon.

    Dips so far only used 240 gsm Supersmooth card and with the back feeder is goes through so easily.
