PRINTING AT HOME
If you are on a tight budget and not too fussed about the print quality, your home printer can do a decent job. However keep in mind that home printer ink is quite expensive and you may have ink leakages or unexpected technical problems. We would only recommend this option if you're printing items such as party invitations and table decor on lightweight paper i.e. not thick card stock.
When it comes to home printers there are two types: laser and inkjet. The main difference between the two is that laser printers use powder-based toner and inkjet printers use water-based ink.
For laser printers, the design is applied onto the page via a heated fuser which bonds the toner to the paper. The resulting image or text is sharp, clear and more precise than what you would get from an inkjet. Toner is also more waterproof than ink so your designs won't be prone to bleeding if it gets in contact with water. The downside of laser printing? Home laser printers usually don't have the capability to print on heavy card stock and you will find that your paper may come out rolled from the heat or have lots of toner residue because of paper jams.
Inkjet printers are the more common desktop colour printer because they are relatively cheap to buy. The process in which the designs are printed is by liquid ink being applied to the paper through tiny jets in the cartridges. If you are using handmade or non-coated textured paper, inkjet printing does turn out quite beautifully because the ink gets absorbed into the paper. Be cautious with coated or extremely smooth paper as the water-based ink may not sit on the page at all. Depending on your printer model, some inkjet printers can take heavy card stock up to 300gsm. One huge downside to inkjet printing is that it is not waterproof and is prone to colour running and fading.
