I am in the market for a moderate range (like "home office" or "small business" level printer/scanner/copier. I have a special day coming up and my special person has offered (with quite a generous budget, too) to buy me a printer/scanner "all in one" machine. So we are looking around for what all-in-one to buy me. We'd really like to stay under $800 (hopefully including toner...) but anything up to that is okay.
I make comics and zines at home, mostly in black and white, but I also paint and draw in color, so I'd like to be able to make prints (and color covers for my home publications). Large format is not a necessity (or even an option - I live in a fairly small apartment and don't have room for a giant printer).
The one I'm most looking at right now is the Canon Color imageCLASS series, especially the MF632Cdw. (Here's a link to the specs on CNET: https://www.cnet.com/products/canon-...r-color/specs/
I realize that this is a VERY big investment, and especially since I'm not spending my own money, I want to make sure I get the right thing. I'm not asking for someone to do all my research, but I AM looking for suggestions and general advice.
So: for printing both black-and-white and color comics and prints and zines and such, what printer/all-in-one would you recommend with a budget of $500-$800 USD?
Alternately, what features do you recommend looking for? What models/issues should I be aware of or avoid?
Let me know if I've forgotten anything or if you need clarification...and thank you so, so much in advance for any help you can offer. I've never bought a printer before and I want to do this right so that my partner's money isn't wasted.
