Default Large Format (Banner) Printer

Does anyone know a good printer capable to print a fuselage side (11"x36" to 48") in one print? Thanks, Alex

Alex, I use an Epson Stylus Color 1520. It's no longer available but maybe you can find one. It's an inject printer that uses fan fold paper. Epson still makes wide carriage fan fold printers but they use ribbon. Try the Epson website. Dan.

Dan, I found the Epson Stylus C88 which says it print 8.5"x44" long. Hard to believe. Maybe it worth a try. Alex

Most of us these days just figure out some way to print the stuff using tile printing and tape the sheets together.
