  • What to use for full color, 11x17, on 60lb-80lb paper?


    I'm new to the printing world, and I am looking for something very project specific here...

    I need to print:

    Full color...but depth doesn't matter much. Realistic photo quality is not that important... 600dpi or a litttle less would be fine I think.

    11x17 on 60lb-80lb paper. If it weren't for this all important requirement, I would probably just go with one of those new Xerox solid-ink phasers

    High Volume / fast? a high monthly duty cycle would be nice. I'm going to need to print about 50,000 of these 11x17 pages per month - 100k if you count that I need to print both sides. Decent cPPM for 11x17 would be nice.

    low cost per page.. the toner or ink or whatever should be very reasonable & parts should be readily available.

    low budget?... I'm trying to stay well under $5k for the printer if possible.

    I would like to go with some kind of digitial option if possible....

    Any suggestions?

    Just stay away from transparency, raster effect shadows, and gradients when creating your logo.

    Thanks, just at the rough sketching stage at the moment.

    I was initially going to go with a square with a peel but then thought overlapping squares might be a lot better.
