Need Printer location help...

by T.L.Grimes / April 13, 2006 3:40 AM PDT

This may be a little to general in info. Is it possible to find a dye sub printer which prints up to 11 x 14? All I can find is up to 8.5 x 11. Any help would be appreciated.

Frustration abounds....

So why can, say Kodak, make a great dye sub printer, the 1400 series for around 450.00 but nothing larger? Is there some technical hang up about going to the slightly larger paper of 11 x 14. Sorry, just ranting a bit....

Kodak did make such a few years ago.

But I couldn't find it today. My bet is the 11x14 sales were abysmal. It's a matter of economics and not that "I want one." There must be thousands of buyers every year or the product will die off.

I know this doesn't help but given what I know by attending various shows and in my primary job of product design I'll share why some things don't exist (anymore.)

There are larger printers but oh, the price.

-> What I see most shops do is proof the print on 8x11 and then head to the print shop.

The Samsung RF23M8090SG

One of the best French door fridges we've tested

A good-looking fridge with useful features like an auto-filling water pitcher and a temperature-adjustable "FlexZone" drawer. It was a near-flawless performer in our cooling tests.
