Hi!

I am looking for a printer (preferably a laser printer) that does not bend the papers, because I am looking for a printer to print on the thick and hard cards or plastic sheets that have a thickness of no more than 1mm. These sheets cannot be bent. Where should I go for such a printer?

Thanks!

Mark

You might be better off to print one page on normal paper, then do the specialised stuff on a photo copier. I had to resort to this when I wanted to print on clear sheets to use on an overhead projector

Laser printers rely on heating the printed media up to a temperature that will fuse the toner on.

Thick sheets cannot be heated in such a manner as they pass under the platen, so you may need to consider another method.

Plastic sheets will melt.
