Hey Guys,

I just graduated from a design academy and I'm starting my own design studio soon. I'm about to buy a printer for proofing purposes but can't decide which printer will suit my needs. I work a lot with typography and illustrations in books, flyers, etc. so full colour and fine printing is a must. At this moment I don't have much money to spend so I had my eye on the Xerox 6600DN. Does anybody know if this printer is good enough for proofing purposes?

Font or clip art?

I keep coming across these flourishes but can't seem to find where they originated. I assumed they were Dover clip art since they have a vintage or antique look, but cannot find them in any of their ornament books. Perhaps these flourishes are a font... Does anyone know where these specific ornaments are from?

online printer for specialty paper and overall print questions because I know nothing

Does anyone have any experience printing on specialty paper?
I'm a complete newb when it comes to commercial printers.

Most online printers have such bad quality paper stock, I want to use my own stock paper from a specialty mill.

The stocks I want to use are typically 110lb to 120lb and do not really work well with laser, I would need an offset printer or some other alternative?

Are there any online places that specialize in printing on specialty papers that except full color files?

Would it be better to just go to a local printer with my paper?

Which printer should I get?

I don't know what to look for in a printer - and a search didn't show any results (how can that be?), so I'll ask here. A printer I've been recommended is Samsung CLP-310N, but I have no idea if this is a good printer.

I want a printer that gives good results with printing text, but also good enough results with printing some graphics/photos.

I'm gratful of any recommendations and help on this topic.
