    Just curious if you print at home, local shop, or online? I used to print at home but moved over to a local shop after my printer shit the bed. I want to try some online print services but I don’t even know where to start. Any online places you would recommend?

    Used Blurb, but want to start printing myself or finding someplace local to print.

    HP Mag (http://www.magcloud.com/) now bought by Blurb used to be good and cheap, specially when compared to Blurb. Now I print everything with local printers or in China.

    I’m making big cheap prints through architecture plan bw printers. I believe in the states there’s a few guys doing big cheap prints at Kinkos/Fedex.

    been usin this for a min for zines / wheatpaste

    How’s the print quality on that guy?

  • #13844

    A lot better than what you’d expect a printer that’s only $180. For black and white zines it’s the best quality affordable laser printer I could find.

    Nice! I think Ima grab one.

    Just be sure to also cop some toner for it when you buy it. The small cartridge that comes with the printer doesn’t last long / work too well. When using this one the print quality got a lot better.

    Thanks for the heads up!
