A Present for Myself

For almost four years now I've been saving my money to buy a wide-format printer. I love love love my Epson printers, so I was fairly focused on buying an Epson. Recently I saw that Epson had a refurbished Epson 3800 professional printer on their website, and I decided to go for it.

The printer will print on art paper/heavyweight stock up to SEVENTEEN INCHES WIDE!!!! It uses archival Epson pigment inks, and I will be able to print my own prints to sell. I am very excited--setting it up right now, and hoping I can get all the bugs out of the color management, etc. by tomorrow.

How cool is this, Karen. I do hope the price of the equipment and inks and paper still allow you to make a profit on your beautiful art.

I fear I have wreaked my Epson by pulling a paper jam out the front.
I am so bad about that rule.
shame on me. Bad, bad, girl.

Have fun with your new toy! And don't pull paper out the front if jammed.

It's funny you mention this, because I have just been thinking about buying an Epson large format, too--My printer is causing way too many woes these days! :-) Let us know how it goes. :-)
