    Suggestion
In summary, the person wants an easy to use and consistent all-in-one printer that can print on different sizes. They do not want a Canon printer because they have had problems with them in the past. They are considering the HP all-in-one printer because it is simple and does not change. However, they are not happy with it because the printer changes with every auto update and the big boss is always yelling.

I am looking for an easy to use and consistent All-In-One printer for craft. My big boss is going to throw both my Canon and HP out the window if I cannot find a good one.

Being good, of cause have to have good color, which, I think everyone is good enough. What my big boss want is easy to use, consistent. She needs to print envelopes, card stocks and on different sizes, not just letter size. The Canon is pinching her nerve and I get to hear about it everyday. It is over $250, not a cheap printer.

We definitely don't want another Canon, we have had like 5 in the last two years, they are the worst. At this point, money is NOT an issue ( of cause not like $1000 or up). what she hate about the Canon is after she find a way to set up to print it in certain way, she wrote down the notes how to do it again. Then the printer CHANGED with every auto update and that really making her furious. She want something that is simple mind, consistent ones...Like she love the old HP we had like 20 years ago. It was quite expensive like $400, but it's simple, you find a way to do a job, it never change. Fast and simple. Now a days, those printers are so so slow and have a mind of it's own. i made the mistake of dumping the old HP away thinking the new ones are just going to be better. Bought the new HP for like $400, it's a piece of $hit, neither one of us even use it and is about to go to the junkyard. The worst part of both printers is they ask you question, then ask are you sure this is what you want...and then print out wrong anyway!

Bottom line, she needs a good one for dummies.

Thanks

What do you mean by "for craft"?

When I read your thread title, I thought you were asking about using it for crafting, which would probably include non-standard features like printing with adhesive inks and other stuff.

But from reading your OP, it looks like you just want a standard inkjet printer with some features that you like. Is that true? Also, you mention all-in-one in "All-In-One printer for craft" in your post -- do you mean you want it to also be capable of scanning and faxing?

Thanks for the reply

Yes, just to print on paper of different sizes, nothing about adhesive inks and the other stuffs. She wants to print like small place cards, self made Christmas cards, she even make envelopes, she just want to print on those. Yes, it would be nice to have scanning, no faxing. But if it is just a printer, I would consider it also if it is very good.

Thanks

Can I remove the words "for craft" from your title? It may confuse others as it did me. I still don't understand that term in the context of your question. No big deal.
