danakay: I'd like to expand into small run menus and have full bleed capability, but don't think an ink jet will be durable enough. Perhaps those with pigment ink will do the trick?
There might be some specialty inkjets out there that would give you full bleed but my experience with the Epson Pro line--I have an Epson 4000--is that you can't get full bleed at least on most cut sheet sizes but you can on certain size papers--look for "borderless" options. Roll paper (only certain printers have roll capability).

I'm not sure you need pigment inks for menus--my guess would be that the life span of a menu is not more than say a year or two?--and dye inks have improved over the years.

Hope that helps...
