    I am looking for a Quality printer. It should be able to print quality prints for serious customers. I am starting my own Photography business and i have always used a third party printing service. I just need some opinions.

    Thank you

    What's `Large Format'? A3+? A2? A1? Are you looking at plotters or at regular printers you can put on your desk?

    Any of the pigment ink printers from Canon, HP or Epson will do what you want. If I wanted to do ultra-large, I'd get an HP Z3100- the built-in EyeOne spectrophotometer means you can create your own ICC color profiles for whatever paper you have handy- a huge advantage for a color-managed workflow.

    If you're looking for a 17" wide printer, there's little that will match the Epson 4880.

    We have the 9880, which does 44'' wide prints, and the quality is unbelievable.

    You have to figure out how to price your prints. Good paper isn't cheap, pigment inks aren't cheap. Time isn't cheap....
