    I bought a A3 Epson Photo DX for that very reason. It will print 297mm wide by 1030mm long. Big enought for marquees and cpo's. DOes a reasonable job too.

    That said, I could be convinced to do either for anyone.

      Where do you get paper that long?

        ...maybe, but then again "maybe" covers a lot of things, like: maybe Michael Jackson really is LaToya in drag, or maybe if Dorothy clicks her heels 3 times and says "There's no place like home" while she is at home, she would telefrag herself..." - MadMikeAU

          Just find a printer that does large format printing and ask if you can buy a few metere's of there 42" photo paper!!. There's a guy in Southport near Australia Fair that has a 42" photo pronter and does huge panaramic's and airial (sp?) photos. He quoted me about $80 for Galaxian sideart and maybe able to squeeze in a kickplate as well!. I'll have to find his business card and put up his details.

            $80 is an awesome deal, you should see some of the prices that i have been quoted!

              I do my own marquee's and cpo's. I do have a techneque for coating the cpo's that make's them watertight and a loght thicker, plus I can make them gloss/satin/matt with whatever texture on them.

                Prof, what does this guy need to print the side art? Do you have the art on disc? What format? I have some galaga side art somewhere that I was going to get printed, but cost was a little high. $80 sounds good.

                  He can basiclly print anything Adobe paint will. I was going to get Galaga done from a PDf file.

                    Hey all..

                    There is a fella at the Carrara Markets (Karrara..? near Broadbeach on the Gold Coast) that said he'd do full colour adhesive vinyl printing for $50.00 a metre..

                    If you hook up tell him a hung over fella asked him about 2 months ago - he'll remember..! I was hungover, I made the point known and told him it would be good for his business..!

                      What side of the bridge is he on? I am there every so often, but have never seen him...
