I just picked up a brand spanking new HP Colour LaserJet CP1525n printer. While this in itself is probably not much to brag about, I managed to snag it for a shade under £140. As an added bonus, HP are offering a £50 cash back rebate on it until October 31st - https://h41201.www4.hp.com/WMCF.Web/uk/en/p...Q3/NewProducts/

Other printers are also covered by this cash back offer, including the CP1525nw version if you wanted built in wi-fi. To me, wired networking is plenty good enough to share the printer with everyone else in the house.

So, for the princely sum of about £90, I've got a nice colour laser printer with built-in networking. (My last inkjet printer cost more than that.) I wonder how well it will work with decal paper. Anyone care to hazard a guess ?

I just thought it was worth mentioning in case anyone else was interested in taking advantage of HP's uncharacteristic generosity.

Cheers,
Stuart.

Cannot speak about this printer specifically, but a couple of years ago I bought an "entry level" Samsung CLP 310 colour laser. When I saw it at PC World there was a large sticker saying something like "Use of specialist papers will void the warranty and may damage the printer". I decided to take a chance and bought it. After a couple of test prints on plain paper I put decal sheet in and have printed about 30 sheets since without any problems.
Of course the cost per decal is ridiculous, but for convenience and not having to use a spray sealer, laser is the way to go. I kept my monochrome laser for normal use.
Also of course, like most lasers it cannot print white "ink".

Kind regards, Leo
