We have an HP 2600n that does a nice job on textured 80# cover. We
call it our disposable color laser since it cost less than $300 new,
with full cartridges at Sams Club. Replacement toner is $80 per
color. Do the math.<g>
My favorite adhesive in our print shop is ordinary padding compound.
To avoid wrinkles, put the padding compound on the heavier board,
not on the thinner paper. Do NOT thin with water, you WILL get
wrinkles. Just brush it out to a thin coating.
