Hi There people


I am looking to buy an A3 printer to print my digi pics on. All tables I have looked at show injet printer with a max size of A4. Have found a few A3 printers knocking around from the obvious players i.e. epson, canon etc which are likely to be ok - but what I really want is a recommendation or two to get me started.

HP have done an A3 deskjet for several years. The first one I bought was the 1120c and it lasted at work for 4 years. The 1220c replacement was bought about two months ago from PC World for £199. (A special offer because it is about to be replaced by a better? model) The 1220c produces good quality colour prints but you must have a good high resolution original to start off with. No economy printer will enlarge a small image up to A3 with perfect resolution. I recommend it to you. If you want to see a sample print send me an e-mail.

Hope these links work! Seems like you can still get the model. The 9300 is the replacement model about £60 more. Then there`s the Designjet 10PS at double the price - depends on your budget I suppose.

I have the Epson 1290s click here. and it produces excellent photos on A3/A4.I use it mainly on A4 and occasionly to make prints from paintings on A3.If you intend printing A4 photos on it you will spend most of your time installing new ink cartridges.

Epson 1290 Canon i9100 i9950 are all excellent. May be worth going somewhere like Jessops, you may be able to get a print out to see for yourself how go it is.
