When one wants just one label or neat printing on a small piece of card or paper currently one has to print on a large sheet and then cut-away the unwanted paper. Have you ever tried to print on a post-it sheet, impossible.

So how about a small computer printer designed to allow one-off prints of small labels, cards etc., of a maximum size of say a post-it sheet. Not a feed-through type printer, but designed maybe so that you could place the card or slip of paper on the base of the printer and then the hinged printing mechanism is brought into contact with the card/paper. This would avoid the problem larger printers have with small pieces of paper/card being too small in size or too thick for the feed rollers. The printer need only be capable of black printing.

Totally agree! ;-D Once I had to print on about 200 blank playing cards, and it was extremely tough. Finally managed to do it, but it took the whole afternoon, and one in five cards caused a paper jam.

Maybe it could also have the ability to pick up items from a stack, that would help using it for all kinds of purposes. Of the mini printers I have seen so far, all just print on a roll of thin paper and you can only use them for receipts & stuff.
