I have a macbook and so far I can use it with any printer.. most printers work with mac.. The printer I use now is a 3 in one by HP.. I havnt tried it with cardstock yet but its been great with everything else.

I just replaced my wireless HP with the wireless Canon Pixma MP990.  It retails for $299, but I got it at Staples for $200 with tax.  I have always relied on HP, but the way the paper feeds in their printers is not great for cardstock.  It folds over itself, as in it loads in front and the paper comes out in front.  

The Canon on the other hand, has two feed options: the fold over and the “photo paper” feeder in back that comes out in front.  This means you can use thicker cardstocks and magnet paper. I ordered magnet paper that is super thick (Vista Print and Overnight Prints use 12 mil for their business card size and I bought 20 mil 8.5×11 sheets).  It had no problem pulling this through front to back.  And the resolution on a Canon is the best you can get on an at-home printer!  I used it for my Save-The-Date Cards (magnet, insert, and envelopes).  I used the photo paper feed in back for all of that. I am so excited about this printer, I can barely stand it!  I tried to get 110 lb. cardstock through my HP a few weeks ago and it jammed three times.  The Canon pulls it through easily.  It’s all about the front-to-back paper feed!  Hope this helps 🙂  The best part though: the Canon ink lasts waaaay longer than the HP did.

Oh, and I am a MacBook user too.

We just bought a new printer from Best Buy – its a Kodak 3 in 1 – scanner, copier, and printer.

We paid $99, and absolutely love it.  We printed our invitations on it, and they turned out fantastic. It’s also wireless.
