    I print invoices for work that have 2 sides and I have to feed the paper through twice.

    Do they have double sided B&W laser printers for Mac that are affordable or are those big industrial printers my only option? :confused:

    Yes you can get something smaller.

    I have an HP 1320c which I've been pretty happy with. This looks to be similar to it.

    HP® LaserJet Pro M401DNE Network Ready Wireless Monochrome Laser Printer - AirPrint - Duplex

    You just need to look for a laser printer with a duplexing module.

    Lots of them. The terminology is "Duplex". Brother HL-2270DW is one example that is quite inexpensive.

    Then, you may not have the duplex option turned on.
    Should just be a choice in your printer window - look for "Two-sided" option, probably under the "Layout" options window.

    You might explore presets

    Many printers are capable of lots of options, but the Mac Print Dialogue can get quite complicated given all the different option choices. Combined with the fact that the print options often vary both by device and program, the greatest productivity booster is to use the Presets for jobs with lots custom settings (like invoices).

    I've set up one for business check printing from my accounting program to a particular laser printer in my office, so I only have to select "Brother - Check printing" at the print invoice and all the custom settings are applied to that job. Just remember to select another Preset on your next job.

    Yeah, but some brands provide no long term driver support (HP & Epson, for example). I heard good things about OKI and Kyocera. Samsung offers also some laser printers.
