Since I'm on the software side of things, I don't know enough about printers, but would love to learn more. In this case, I have a new client who just purchased our bulk mail software but now needs a printer and doesn't know where to turn, so I need to lend assistance. Here's his need:

He's always printing the return address, indicia, and address block with IMB on #10 envelopes. He'll run approximately 500-2000 per job, and the job will happen about twice a month. It's a single 20# sheet inserted, but they can do that after the printing. This is literally all that they mail. They will be doing the folding+stuffing by hand; no interest in getting a machine to do it.

He couldn't give me a budget, so what would be the least expensive option to get this job done?

Thank you in advance!

Hello Eric. If he's looking for a printer that will print both envelopes and the letters he might have trouble locating one that will handle the envelopes without issue. If he only needs a desktop laser to print the letters I recommend HP 404n monochrome printers. I have a few clients who use these in their office environments and they seem to be both fast and reliable. I found one of these on the Staples website for less than $300. I'm not sure but if the printer has a single page feeder on it, it might also handle the envelopes as well. Hope this helps.

It looks like they're going to go with the Professor's recommendation, and the HP rep I spoke to thought it was a great idea as usual. I'll keep L&D in my rolodex for future questions like this, which will definitely happen. Thank you both!
