Help me buy a new printer

My fiancee and I are trying to keep wedding costs down and are entertaining the idea of printing some of the paper items necessary ourselves (rehearsal dinner invite, wedding invitation insert, ceremony program, etc.). Is there a consumer printer that costs under $150 that could do a pretty good job with these things? Looking at Amazon is kind of overwhelming with the various makes and models, and since I haven't bought a printer in many years I'm not sure what to trust. [more inside]

Economical home printer?

It is, sadly, time to retire our dinosaur LJ4 and get a new printer. Our primary concern for the new printer is cost over the total life of the printer. We print quite a bit for home users, I'd guess about 200 pages a month. Low cost per page is important. Probably this means a black and white laser printer, but not sure. [more inside]

How to install an HP Laserjet 1012 on new Dell w/ Win 7 Professional?

Greetings: Does anyone know a quick work-around for installing an HP Laserjet 1012 printer on a new Dell running on Windows 7 Professional? I have the original set up disk for the printer, but that doesn't work (and I don't get an explanatory error message). HP's website says that it is not supplying a driver for this printer for Windows 7. I am guessing that there is a work-around for this, and that someone out on the green might know what this is. I'd be grateful! Thanks!

Good color printer for crafting?

My wife is looking for a good color printer for crafting projects. We have a cheap-ish inkjet now, but the color quality is disappointing. Decent color fidelity for the occasional photos and the ability to print on thicker papers are important to us, but we're hoping to avoid spending Money Hats(tm). Should I look at color laser printers? Anyone have suggestions on particular printers?

Looking for some color in a black and white world

It seems that I have completely run out of black ink, but I have a new color cartridge in my HP All-in-one printer (F2120). I want to print out pdfs of crossword puzzles that I've downloaded from the internet. The pdfs only utilize black ink. I want to print them out in a color (red, green, blue.. I don't care), so that the puzzle and clues all appear in the same (non-black) color. I'm using Adobe Acrobat 6.0 Professional for Win2k. Is there any easy way to do this? Is it even possible? Have I provided enough info?

As a gift for my husband, I took some saucy pictures.

Are there any discrete online digital photo printing services you'd recommend? Or should I just buy a photo printer? Which one? [more inside]

Best All-in-one printers?

I just need an all-in-one printer that will copy, print and scan. Don't need fax really. This is for home use. I currently have an Epson CX4600, actually it's the 2nd one in 3 years. The first one died before the warranty was up, so they sent me a new one and I sent the old one back. Now this one won't print or copy. I've tried all of the trouble shooting things. Epson says I have to buy a new one. I dont want another Epson.
