What laser printers are folks using that will successfully feed pre-printed QSL cards.  I am tired of using labels or trying to babysit my current printer which has trouble feeding postcards.

A good way to find out which can do the job is to take some samples of the stock with you to one of hte 'big box' electronics retailers and actually try to print with one of their display units.

I use a Brother HL-1440 and get good results.  Your formatting software is the tricky part and getting everything lined up in the right places on the pre-printed QSL card.

I use a Epson C-88 Inkjet with water resistant ink
and it prints beautifully and feeds the cards no
problems with slipping cards!

Also prints beatifull custom cards I design on my PC..

My preprinted cards from Octavia are coated on the front and the backs are very smooth! This printer
handles them with no problem!
