Don't bleed me with color ink charges!

I'm looking for a very specific kind of printer that can print true black onto 4x6 card stock weight paper.

The printer would be used for to print black text onto one side of a 4x6 pre-printed postcard. The postcard is already full color, so this would literally ONLY be printing black text. This is what the business I work for uses as our gift card solution to include with product.
Ideally, it would have the following features:
1. Compact, reasonably priced unit / parts.
2. Able to print in true black, not a composite from color cartridges as those tend to be much pricier in the long run.
4. Able to handle postcard weight paper, probably around 110g.
Any ideas? The first thing I stumbled across was the Canon Selphy CP800 photo printer, but had to rule that out because it uses proprietary paper AND ink which are very expensive.
