[Micronet] Color Printer Recommendations

Beth Muramoto
We have a unit who would like to have a good quality color printer and willing to spend $1,000 to produce moderately high quality color publications every once in awhile, saving some outsourcing costs. They realize that inexpensive consumer color printers can be a mixed bag, but they are hoping to do flyers and the like themselves and save up for the really high-end printing to outsourced services.

Does anyone have any recommendations? The choices are mind boggling. Is 1200 x 1200 dpi good enough? What's a good way to compare? Places like Main Street on BearBuy can have wildly ranging models from $600+ to upwards of $1200+ claiming 1200 x 1200 dpi.

Thanks for sharing your experience and lending guidance as always.

“Finish each day and be done with it. You have done what you could. Some blunders and absurdities have crept in – forget them as soon as you can. Tomorrow is a new day. You shall begin it serenely and with too high a spirit to be encumbered with your old nonsense.”

This is the essence of forgiveness. You can't change what happened but you can make sure it doesn't have the power to prevent you from being happy tomorrow.
