I own a Lexmark E120 but it's broken. I wonder what else I could get ?
I dont need a huge printer, it's for small home project. I got a samsung one today and it doesnt work.
When I print, it's always the same result (no dots). When I print with a frequency of 55 lines/inches it look the same as a 80 lines/inches. Just wonder what kind of laser printer do you use for small DIY home project ? Or which characteristic I should look for?
So take care of your inkjet printer and fire it up every once in a while if it's idle.
The thing about laser printers and transparency film is, laser printers produce heat and heat distorts acetate. Therefore your positives won't register reliably to one another. That's all well and good if what you are doing is single-color tshirts or loose designs where registration is a non issue, but if you need any kind of tightness, or, God forbid, you are trying to tile up multiple smaller positives... deal breaker.
For a home DIY project (two people can't read?) why spend $70 for an inkjet that will be thrown out? Get a good ebay laser that you can actually use after your project.
If you were going to be an 'all gown up printer' then yes, invest in quality tools. But inkjets suck. The nozzles WILL CLOG in unused and you will not want to spend $50 for ink in a $70 printer.
You DO APPEAR to be an asshat.
Here's the thing about knowledge dispensed by knowledgeable people in a public forum:
It may go outside the questioner's brief. Because other people may search the forums later, with related though not identical questions. And the more solid information they find, the more useful it is. Meanwhile the OP is probably quite capable of determining whether a given response applies to their situation and needs or not. And if it's yours, you will know because you will receive a lovely personal thank-you card from the OP, thanking you personally for solving his problem, and remarking how useless the other responders were. I know; I have a fucking desk full of the things. Around the holidays I reap mailbags full of cards from hapless printers whose asses I've saved, with pictures of their kids. Sometimes checks even slip out of them. That's why I bother wasting my time, answering strangers' technical questions on GP fucking dot com when I should be working.
