If you need the best printer for cardstock papers, you should go for a wireless wide format printer. The Epson WorkForce WF-7720 comes in at a great price, counting all its features. And it is the best printer for cardstock papers at this price.

The Epson WorkForce WF-7720 is pretty good for doing office work at home. It may not be a proper high-volume printer, but it has a high capacity for almost everything, including ink cartridges, which is not common at this price. For a similar printer, you can read our WorkForce WF-7210 review.

Epson’s inkjet printing technology powered by their “Precision Core” really does excel on this front. The speed of the Epson WorkForce WF 7720 is around 10 PPM color printouts and 18 PPM black (for monochrome printouts). These are very similar speeds to the Epson WF3720 at 20 PPM monochrome. Basically, at max, it takes about 6 seconds per page. But, the HP OfficeJet Pro 9015 is a much better choice if you need even more print speed.
Just like most Epson printers with a high-capacity ink cartridge, the print quality is pretty good. And because it’s a wireless wide format printer, you can print out borderless prints up to 13″ X 19″ in size. But the black ink quality is not that great in a color print. In that case, have a look at our Epson WF7710 WorkForce wireless printer review for better color-quality prints.
The Epson WorkForce WF 7720 is very efficient in terms of power usage. In fact, this one printer sips as much as 80 percent less power compared to a color laser printer in its class. However, it’s not great in terms of ink usage. You can print around 20 pages per ink cartridge, so it will make you buy remanufactured ink cartridges from the get-go if you’re going to print even a somewhat moderate amount of content. Even the Canon Pixma iX6820 has better ink efficiency, a printer costing less than half its MSRP.

This is a place where this printer knocks it out of the park. It has a scanner that can scan copy and send it over to any device. The Epson WorkForce WF 7720 also has support for most of the modern and older iterations of Windows and macOS. And on top of that, it features both Wi-Fi direct (Epson’s term for specifying WiFi support) and ethernet for controlling the printer using the Epson Connect app.
With its relatively low pricing, Epson America has an incredible value-for-money printer in its hands. It’s modern (released back in 2017) and has many features, so it deserves its price tag. But if you are still not convinced and can make do with a few sacrifices, you can also get the HP OfficeJet 3830, which has dropped in price quite a bit over the last five years. However, if you want a simple, entry-level all-in-one, check out the HP ENVY Photo 622 Wireless.
After looking at other printers, you might think that the Epson WorkForce WF-7720 is overpriced. But it really is not if you need all the features it provides. If you mostly use photo paper for printing purposes, it is going to be a perfect fit for you.
