Default Inkjet printer for cardstock

I'm looking for an inexpensive inkjet printer that will print quite thick card, any suggestions?

Printers all come with info on the max thickness of paper they will use. Really thick paper needs a flatbed plotter which isnt cheap.

Look at HP and Canon. The inkjets that can handle A3 format can mostly handle thicker paper/card.

Something else, i have used laser printers with special papers that react tothe heat of the fuzer. One type went crinckly - sort of wrinkled - also one type was a foam that hardened after about 30 seconds, might be a solution?

There are also metallic sheets - very thin, you print onto paper plus film with a laser and the metallic holigraphic colored text is fused onto the paper, very pretty...
