I didn’t have it at the time but the printer I have now is a Xerox color Cube 8570. It uses wax instead of ink (its also considered eco-friendly). Very vivid color and it is fast. Only downside is it’s a little noisy. However it’s not the cheapest option and having them printed would be less expensive than buying.

yeah, wanted to second that getting your own printer will prove more expensive in the long run.

I used my Brother laser printer for metallic envelopes and cardstock and it worked fine. But when printing on inkjet printer I could barely see the text.

Canon Pixma IP 4920.  Worked on Paper Source 300lb letterpressed cardstock with NO issues.

The cardstock itself is very important – I had no success printing on metallic silver cardstock from Michael’s with an inkjet printer (Canon Pixma), but printed perfectly on metallic silver cardstock from Paper Presentation on the exact same printer.  So I guess the lesson is to make sure that the cardstock you purchase is printable if you are using an inkjet, because the crap from Michael’s was not.

I have a Canon Pixma MG620 I think it is (either that or the 820). I know it works great on non metallic, not sure about metallic

My HP 4300(inkjet) so far has worked on all my tests (had to print stuff one at a time so the ink didn’t smear, let it dry for a long time – I left it alone for an hour, and then sealed it with inkjet fixative spray just in case). So even cheap inkjets can work with the right paper!

I have a Canon Pixma as well.  No issues.  Works with cardstock.  SUPER THICK cardstock and metallic paper.  I got mine for under $100.
