    Hi, looking for a printer that prints well on card, had a couple of printers previously that jam when you get anywhere near 300gsm. Keen to not spend too much money.

    Would need it to be wireless and if it was to be A3 too that would be a bonus!

    Appreciate thoughts.

    A3 and 300gsm heavy media with 'cheap' as the budget? Unless you print a lot, outsource. If you do print a lot, still outsource.

    I dont know if you would call my brother mfc j5730dw cheap or expensive, but either way it can only take a max of 220gsm paper. But 1 thing I have learnt, is dont overfill the papertrays or use over thick paper/card that the printer dont support, as it damages the paper pickup mechanism and wont take the paper into the printer. I have just ruined my last printer from doing this.
