Printer info...calling all you DIY girls!

In anticipation of the mass amounts of DIY projects I am about to embark on, I am thinking about getting a good, quality printer. I would like it to be reasonably priced (under $150). Do you girls have any suggestions? What have you used?

My FI researched printers and ordered a Canon MX310 - I think it was less than $100 from Amazon.  At first I was skeptical (worried about the cost of ink, since it's an inkjet) but I have to admit it's one of the best decisions we've made.  It's come in handy because it also has a scanner (this is VERY nice for contracts), copier, printer (before this, I was always wary of those "all in one" printers) but the quality is excellent!  I've printed out quite a lot of stuff and we haven't run out of ink yet.  So far I've done our save-the-dates (printable magnets) and table numbers on there, in addition to a bunch of other mockup-type things for our wedding, and full-color inspiration boards.


The only thing I would be wary of is, if you want to print on stardream paper, you won't be able to do it with an inkjet.  So I guess, first figure out the materials you'd like to use, and then make your decision.  I worried if our printer would be able to handle the thickness of the magnets we printed on, but it went through fine, so I think cardstock would be okay.  We used www.paperandmore.com for our paper needs.


HTH!
