For everyone that marked this post: http://littlecubsboutique.blogspot.c...on-ribbon.html
the reason it doesn't work with other types of printers is that when you have a printer that rolls the paper through instead of a straight feed the ribbon, etc gets stuck.
Although I'm going to try this anyway to see if I can get it to work on mine. If not I'll buy another printer. :-) My HP is fantastic but I want one to print ribbon on too.
