The Color Printing Forum Marketplace Forums can be useful for members who know one another well from forum discussions and offline communications and wish to post presses, equipment, or parts they either want or have for sale or trade. However, caution and good judgement should always be used. Especially when considering any business with anyone not already well known to you and trusted, due diligence must be used to confirm details and identity and be sure the transaction is safe before any money or property changes hands. Always use good judgement and perform due dilligence and follow these guidelines.

    Hello, I am currently trying to print low volume (1000 sheets a month) chocolate bar labels. They have a full bleed of color and need to be on glossy paper around 28#.

    Are there any printers or presses that you all would recommend to a newbie.

    I have tried cheap laser printers but they can't handle the full bleed of color at the consistency and quality required (banding and blotching issues). I have also tried ink jets but they can't handle printing on glossy paper without the issues of smearing or streaking and buying photo paper by the 1000s does not make sense value wise.

    Sorry if I am such a newbie that this request doesn't make sense. I have done a LOT of research and experiments and I just can't seem to get something that works. I am hoping that this community has the real knowledge to help.

    Thanks in advance!
