Yeah, lol, I suppose they are. I guess it would need to be 42"Budget? Largest size you'd like to print? Those are huge factors.
Well I'm just putting out feelers at the moment, I'm not about to go out & spend 1000s immediately : )Calm down,
I have no idea what your planning on doing but....Thats frickin huge size for most canvas's. Either your planning on selling a bucket load or your planning on selling just 40 x 30 inchers.
You will waste a lot of paper (which is the expensive stuff) if you dont end up using every available inch.
The question you should be asking is which RIP to use.....
Since you want to print so large, even a used printer is going to be expensive. I picked up a used Epson 4800 for $500, but the bigger ones are still a few k used. You'll need one that is 44" wide and that is hard to come by. I think the Espon 9700 is your best bet for finding a good deal on a used model that meets your reqs, however it is not the greatest printer. The 9890 or 9900 are far superior.Well I'm just putting out feelers at the moment, I'm not about to go out & spend 1000s immediately : )
