Hi to all!
I have a home graphic design business, making mainly wedding invitations. I have had a canon s500 which has now gone caput and am in a need to upgrade. I print mainly on vellum paper as well as cardstock, and have been running about 1000 prints per month, maybe slightly more. I may also want to print photos on photographic paper, but that is not the major need. Printing on both sides of a paper is something I will use if I have the capability, and though I have not had a need to print larger than 8.5x11, it may come up. Since I make wedding invitations, it would be nice for the brides if the lasted some time, but am unsure as to whether the inklife has been measured outside of photographic paper.
I have been recommended the canon i860 (about $100) and the epson 2200 (about $600). Is the Epson going to be as effective on non-photographic paper (for graphics)?Does anyone have any recommendations based on the needs described above.
Any input appreciated! I have a job in line and need to buy asap! Thanks!
