Thanks for the sensible replies. I have one follow-up question.
given a card stock preference (requirement) this might have a determining effect on the choice of printers. Will commodity laser/ink/thermal/dye-sub printers print well on card stock? seems like there might be some issues here such as paper-tray size, feed paths, paper finish, dust, and ink drying times. It also seems plausible that even if a printer claims to accept card stock that for **commodity** printers this is likely to be in the extreme range of its design and thus potentially a non-dismissable Q/A issue. Still it hardly seems like an insurmountable obstacle, though it might argue for a non-consumer grade printer. (I note that some of the thermal printers I found advertised did print on fan-fold card stock. (albeit smaller than 8x11))

By the way, which vendors are proposing atm-recepit size printers?

And the machine sealing issue is a an agument in favor of OVC. the less precious machines are the easier it is to have a surplus of machines.
