If you are in the card or invitation printing business, a fast and reliable printer is a necessity. Because of their ability to quickly adhere ink to the surface of card stock and glossy paper, LaserJet printers are typically the best choice for printing invitations or cards. The mid-range options listed here offer good results for the small business or the home printer.
HP Color LaserJet CP3520
This LaserJet option from HP is compact and can be easily stored next to your work desk. The printer's highest available color resolution is 1200 x 600 dpi (dots per inch), and it can process approximately 30 ppm (pages per minute), meaning color and detail will not be compromised for speed. The recommended monthly amount of pages is between 1,500 and 5,000.
Xerox Phaser 6180MFP
The Xerox Phaser 6180MFP is an office-type, stand-alone printer capable of a few large jobs or consistently small ones. Maximum print resolution is 600 x 600 dpi, suitable for printing text and small images typically found on invitations. It prints color pages as fast as 20 ppm and has a monthly print limit of 5,000. It also features automatic double-sided printing.
The Lexmark X544DN is squat, simple and efficient. It has a color print resolution of 1200 x 600 dpi and manages 23 ppm. The monthly page limit is 3,000 maximum, so this printer will work best for smaller volumes. It also comes with a duplex printing feature, allowing you to print two different invitations at once.
