Re: What Epson Printer does this best?



<x-flowed>I've done some snooping about and checked out the Epson 5500 on their 
web site. Looks like a great printer but maybe a bit pricie at $3500 for 
a start up. But certainly seems like a possible choice to do the job if 
there was paper that would handle the task.
