A Note for Card Printers…

It looks like both Canon and Epson are moving towards front-feed only desktop/all-in-one printers (for 8.5×11 and smaller sheets).

If you print on greeting cards and other small sheets, we recommend getting machines like Canon Pixma MG6220, Canon Pixma MG8220, or the Epson Artisan 50 with back-feeders for more successful card prints before they are off the market.

Here are some places to get these printers a resonable prices:
1. Canon PIXMA MG6220 Wireless Inkjet Photo All-in-One Printer (5292B002)
2. Canon PIXMA MG8220 Wireless Inkjet Photo All-In-One Printer (5293B002)
3. Epson Artisan 50 Color Inkjet Printer (C11CA45201)

  1. Hello, I appreciate the info however I just wonder why the front feeders could not be expected to work on card printing papers?? Gravity/weight feed assistance on rear feeders, does this make the difference?
    I don’t care for the all in one’s myself.
    Best Regards

      The front feed design forces paper to make an abrupt 180 degree turn in a space of about 1 vertical inch. The printer is usually not robust enough to force card stock to make the turn so jams occur.
