I have recently got into the excellent paperboys series of print your own paper armies. I have been using a cheap canon inkjet printer and have found the results to be ok, but would like to get a better copier. I have looked online and read a number of reviews but information on copier output is not that helpful. Can anybody recommend a printer with a good high resolution copier.

Yes, a good printer is better to have but have you tried a different quality of paper with your printer? Also, they have a face book page that you could pop on to and ask what they use or recommend.

yes, i tried 100gm matt photo paper, and also high quality paper, but still am not that satisfied with the result. I have had a look on the facebook page, but am not a facebook user so can't ask questions. think i need a better printer. thanks for you advice.

Another option is to scan the picture and take it to an office supply place to print out. They should have thicker paper. As long as the book says you can scan and print they should be able to do it for you.

I just take the book to the local stationery shop, and get them to copy the pages I want, using exactly the weight of paper recommended in the book for whatever I'm making.

Their printing machine has great quality reproduction, and it still works out at only 4 or 5 bucks a regiment!

thanks guys, i will be going to town today so will take the book with me and try a local print service. its only a small town so my options might be a bit limited. Arteis02, the colour on your figures looks great, mine aren't so bright as that, but that is what I'm looking for. thanks again for your help.
