Have you considered a toner cartridge black only laser printer. My experience with colour printers has been mainly bad, with very expensive cartridges and ink clogging. I now have a Brother laser printer and for colour (mainly photos) I take a memory stick to the local supermarket with colour printing facilities. Their colour printing is top photographic quality and also much cheaper than using your own ink to produce poor quality colour prints.
Brother laser printers are available in print only or with the usual top lid style copying plate facility and yes, they are generally a bit larger than some of the ink jet printers. A typical black toner cartridge will allow for up to 1200 A4 copies and although more expensive than ink cartridges are financially and physically a much better option.
Keep your important colour stuff on an SD card or other memory device or "cloud" them.
The laser printers are also generally much faster. Important if you are sending out invites or writing your break through best seller novel.
I also have a dedicated scanner which runs off the powered USB port on the laptop
, so it is usable at sea or at mooring
The laser printer requires 240 VAC.
The scanner, being flat, stows well, but not the printer. It works well for us.
