ANY ordinary color Inkjet printer is fine for Inklingo.
You can choose a printer based on your primary need, and it will be fine for Inklingo. If Inklingo is your primary need, you can just choose whatever is on sale. (See November 2012 update below.)
All ordinary color Inkjet printers and All-in-Ones print custom sizes, and that is perfect for Inklingo.
There are newer model numbers now for the Canon printers described below but very little has changed. I have used MG5420 and MG7720 and MX922. Jams are rare if you follow the instructions and the software makes it easy to set custom sizes. I don't think I will ever go back to HP. (No affiliation.)
TIP When I was looking for a new printer earlier this year (2017), I called Canon Support for Canada (where I live) and they were able to tell me which model used the same ink cartridges. That was very helpful because I had leftover ink I wanted to use up. They also amazed me by telling me which store near me had the model I wanted on sale (Staples) at that time. I was very impressed.

UPDATE FOR HEWLETT PACKARD PRINTERS AND ALL-IN-ONES - NO MORE CUSTOM SIZES?
In the past, HP included the ability to print Custom Page Sizes in the software. If you have one, hang on to it!
UPDATE JANUARY 2015
HP has included the ability to print custom page sizes in the software for HP Envy 4500 e-all-in-one and HP Officejet 4630 e-all-in-one.
If you are considering buying a new HP, be sure it can support custom page sizes.
JANUARY 2015 If you already have an HP printer and the software does not support Custom Page sizes, there is a workaround on the HP site.
If you decide to buy something other than HP in order to get Custom Page Sizes, it wouldn't hurt to let HP know why they lost the business. There is a possibility that they listen to customer feedback.
In the past, all Inkjet printers were capable of printing custom page sizes, but now it is a good idea to check the features before buying a new one, especially from HP.
AUGUST 2013 REVIEW OF A GREAT PRINTER
Update 1 November 2012
If you have a slightly older Inkjet printer (pre 2011), you are in luck!
Until recently, there were very few Inkjet printers which did not print Custom Page Sizes. That seems to be changing, so it is necessary to be more careful when buying for Inklingo.
- Brother: "Unfortunately we do not have a list of Printers that have custom size settings. Generally most ink jet models do support this feature as long as you have the Brother driver installed that goes with your Operating system for your computer. If you are using built in drivers for a certain Operating system, these features may not be there. We suggested making sure your customers have the correct drivers installed for the Version of Windows or Mac they are using." (Reply on 2 November 2012)
- Canon: "All Canon printers and multifunction printers are capable of printing on custom size paper." (Reply on 1 November 2012)
- Epson has several printers and All-in-Ones which print custom sizes.
- HP printers used to have this feature, but now only two All-in-Ones print custom sizes.
HP Photosmart 5520 e-All-in-One
HP Photosmart 6520 e-All-in-One
If you don't want an All-in-One, there is no other option. (Reply on 30 October 2012).
- Kodak is in bankruptcy and not making Inkjet printers now.
- Lexmark is no longer making Inkjet printers.
November 2012 The Caffeinated Quilter has written a favorable review of a Canon Inkjet on her blog.
If your printer software does not support custom sizes, please let me know. There are a few workarounds I can suggest.
There are step-by-step instructions for Printing Custom Sizes under the Support tab.
