Hey Larry,

I spend a LOT of time looking for a great color laser with great color and paper handling capabilities and picked up the Okidata c3200n (http://www.okidata.com/mkt/downloads/C3200.pdf) at Staples for about $300 about a year ago. They don't make that model any longer, but you can get a rundown on everything they offer at http://www.okidata.com/mkt/html/nf/LED_color.html

It's a great printer with beautiful glossy prints and the quality is much better than the HP printers that were out at the time. I haven't done enough printing to have to change the cartridges yet, but I think the cost per page based on the MFG's numbers was about $0.20 a page. The funny (sad?) thing though is that it costs about as much for all new cartridges than it does to buy a new machine - but I found a source for toner on eBay and I'm going to refill these cartridges when I need to and see how their toner looks.

In regards to paper handling, I took some cardstock into Staples when I was shopping and tested it out on the different models on display to see which worked the best. Because the Oki's a single pass printer and paper can exit straight out the back it's excellent for post cards or anything you want to print with heavy stock.

Hope this helps, but feel free to ask any questions and I'll answer them if I can.
