If you insist on laser, I got nothing. If you'll go inkjet, I can recommend
continuous flow systems. The idea is that you don't use the expensive, tiny
cartridges, but use large bottles of ink attached to the print head via
tubes instead. You can buy the ink in very large bottles, and at good
prices. I've been quite happy with mine. See
