We are also currently using a dot matrix printer, but every time I hear it
being used, I keep thinking that there has to be a better way.  It is just
really low on my priority list at the moment.  I would strongly suggest
looking at a laser or ink jet.

University of Rhode Island uses dot matrix, but we strongly suspect that a
dedicated laser printer would be cheaper, faster, and easier. We use
Millennium, which with Release 2007 supports many and varied printing
options.
