Double Sided Printing Problem - Adobe Indesign Macintosh

It's not an expense issue, inkjets just aren't designed for this kind of capability. Well, actually, I guess it is an expense thing because our 2 sided laser duplex machine that was designed for this cost over $30,000 and I doubt your inkjet was that much. You don't have to use kinko's, don't you have a local printer that does this kind of work?...

    I have a high-end copier and it's no better. For critical work, I print one side, put back into the copier and print the other side. For non-critical work, I let it go. The back side is 1/8" off to one side. I used to move the 2nd page over an 1/8 but too many times I forgot to move it back and when I printed the job offset is was off.

    I have a DocuColor 2045 and if it ever printed with perfect front to back registration I'd fall over dead from shock! The problem I most often have with it is a skew. If it's critical I have to open the back and rotate it slightly, the worst part is, I have to play with it and try numerous times to get the angle right. VERY time consuming. We'll be replacing this with a 6060 in the next few months which I'm told has more controls over the front to back registration. I hope so because what I have to do now is insane!

    I could have written that. It is most frustrating. I've never come across a printer (a non-human one, that is) that can get reasonable front-to-back registration or even make it decently easy to adjust.

    We'll be replacing this with a 6060 in the next few months which I'm told
    has more controls over the front to back registration. I hope so because

    The very best of luck to you.
