Color toner fumes?
I always knew there had to be a reason graphic artists love their jobs!

Hehe... I was all excited about the new printer until I'd run off about 50 prints and started noticing the smell... Eeewww.

Breathing is Fundamental. :)

Since color pigments are probably made of heavy metal salts they must be harmful. Most print shops run a special ventilation system for that reason.
A simple air ioniser can be effective against laser toner fumes. I notice some printer toner powder all around the device here. I prefer dusting it off the desk every week than coughing it out of my lungs every day.

What you're smelling is most likely the ozone, all laser printers emit that to a certain degree. If it's a half decent machine, then it will have an air filter that keeps the toner particles from clouding the atmosphere.

Hmm... for $2000 list, you'd think it was halfway decent, but I never thought ozone was so stinky.
Luckily, summer is on the way and I can start opening the office windows if I have a large print job to do. (Shoulda thought of that yesterday, eh?)
