    Hello,

    What's the best combination of printers/paper/ink for mass color flyers/coupons printing? I'm looking for a good quality/price ratio (siding somewhat upon the price side).

    hp officejet pro 8600 series printers

    the black cartdrige they take is the 950XL which will run you $35.99 and gives you approx 2,500 prints

    compare that to a laser printer.. a toner with that yield will cost you over $100

    also the 8600's do EVERYTHIGN... print/copy/scan/fax/photo, have apps, e-print, iphone+ipad support... you can't beat them

    Colour printing is always expensive.

    A cheaper alternative to vanilla black and white is to go to a professional copier and get them to print black ink on coloured paper.

    I got a batch done, 300 approx. pages for about the equivalent of 15 bucks. And it won't smear in the rain either (like inkjet does).

    ^ the new ink which is in the hp 8600 series i mentioned and also the new canon printers doesn't smudge. you can highlight it the second the printer spits it out
