Printing on Photo Roll Paper

  Bakerdave 10:04 05 Oct 2008

Has any one had any success printing on a roll from an Epsom Stylus Photo R800?
The instructions talk about "Insert the roll paper holder adapter into the slot at the rear of the printer, and then attach the roll paper holders to the adapter." I haven't got a roll paper holder adapter but the machine doen't seem to need one, or does it?

I know it's not the same model, but with my Epson 870 I've used roll photo paper without the paper holder -- initially because I couldn't see how to slot the holder in, and later because it was simpler not to mess around with it.

Just make sure you let the paper run smoothly through the printer, preferably by hand-feeding it. If you allow the roll to rest down between the normal paper tray and the back of the printer it can sometimes jam up as it unrolls.

Thanks, that seems like common sense. I'll give it a try.

Just fit the roll holder, feed the paper into the slot on the back of the printer and press the feed button.

I have had an R800 for a couple of years now using standard size papers. I now need to re-order and have not considered rolls. How do you find using rolls benefits you? Is it cheaper?

No, bloody expensive!

there's a lot of waste.

It has been some time since I used rolls but actually there wasn't much waste at all it was just that they were much, much more expensive to buy than sheets.
