    Hello,

    I currently run a small business and much of my business comes from foil stamped products. Currently I use a laser printer to print the design, then foil stamp it with a laminator.

    However, I am hoping to expand my capabilities with wider/thicker paper. So I'm wondering if it is better to invest in a wide-format laser printer (which seem to be expensive and meant for office use), or find an alternative option like a digital foil stamping machine. I don't know where to find either of those.

    Canon were, BUT 3D is better..
    I reckon you should stick to what you know and works best for you, yes an A3 laser is expensive but foil stamping machines are not cheap either, do a search on Craig’s List for a discontinued office A3 laser printer.. ;)

    I think you should prefer your budget if you can afford wide format laser printer easily you can go for it and if not other option is available for you.
