My first day with a Website and a Blog - Choosing a Printer (or not)
After I got the Cricut Maker I discovered a whole new world in creating cards. See, I knew it would cut designs and make cards, but I didn't want to buy a bunch of colored card stock, but rather print what I want to cut. I am cheap and figured I had already spent enough money on the machine, Access membership (bought before the Maker to save 10% on the purchase, so it paid for itself for the first couple of months), tools, pens, blades, and cutting mats. I bought a ream of fairly inexpensive 80 lb. card stock, but discovered it would not feed through my current printer....thus the search for a new printer.
Needless to say, I have come to the conclusion that it is cheaper to buy a new ream of 60 lb. card stock that will feed through my current printer, than a new $350 printer. As it turns out, the 80 lb. would have been too heavy for what I am working on anyway. As a plus I can use the 80 lb. card stock to cut and write on with the Maker directly from their Design Space Software. Whew....I now know way more than I ever wanted to about printers.
