I am wondering if anyone on the board can do me a favor. I am not thrilled with the quality of the on-line printer I am using. I did another post a while back and several folks suggested alternatives which I will explore so thanks again. However, to do exhibition quality work most of these places charge $40-60 (or more) per print. Now if I sell the print that cost is fine but given my sales track record so far, I need to find a better alternative. Several folks on this board have raved about the print quality of the Epson 2400 so I am thinking of upgrading to it. However, before I do so I want to see how the machine spits out prints on good paper. I am wondering if there is anybody to whom I can ship a couple of images who would then print them on the 2400 on good paper in B&W. I would of course be willing to pay a reasonable fee for time and materials. Please contact me if you are willing to do this for me.

regards

Go to Comp USA and buy one and test it out. If you dont like it you can return it and the paper and get all your money back.

Thanks for the tip. The 5000 looks like a great printer but it is more than three times the price of the 2400. Maybe I need to bite the bullet and save my money - do you have any experience doing B&W on the printer?

I had not heard about this printer so thanks for the tip. I read a review and it certainly sounds good. Do you have any direct experience with it?
