Which color laser printer is best for home business use?

I am a wedding planner, when I have a upcoming wedding I print off a lot of things from time lines, to invitations, Reserved cards, post cards , labels , stickers. ect..
I currently have a HP C4180 and it is my LAST HP printer !!!
My problem is I can go for weeks without printing something and then have to print a lot of things. I am constantly buying ink because it won't work after being in the machine for a couple months. No matter how much ink was used. Tonight I kept getting the "Remove and check color cartridge" I must have removed that cartridge 20 times. I even put more ink in it. I just bought this cartridge a month ago!!
I know HP has done many things to keep folks from saving a buck (which is why they are in court) so I am guessing it has something to do with that.
I have been told that a laser printer will never clog up because it is powder not goopy ink. It can sit for months without printing.
I am looking for a laser printer that does the following
1. Must be able to re-fill ink cartridges myself or at least be able to purchase after market cartridges and have them work !!! I know HP has done something to their laser printers so you can't refill them yourself and they have a chip to keep you from using after market ink.
2. Must be able to print heavy card stock and velum.
3. Must have great reviews from consumers.
4. Can't cost more than my next car
Can someone on here please help me figure this out. My husband used to be my IT guy but he passed away several years ago so now I am on my own.
