My initial view of the printer is good and I’m impressed with the quality of the prints coming out so far. I had intended doing a lot of printing today but woke up this morning feeling poorly and cold so I’ve picked up a bug from somewhere so did a lot of self comforting today!
Started craft printer trials today, 30/11/2016. Setup printer and handed over to Enid Wadsworth of Ininity Cards who is going to run the printer through its paces, in particular, printing on heavy weight card-stock in order to determine how well the printer does in this application and if it starts causing issues.
