RE: Large format plotter

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
If you don't need the plotter that often, why not just use a local print 
shop.  Kinko's and our local blueprint shop both offer large-size plotting 
services at a reasonable price.  Spend the money on a decent 11x17 printer 
for check sets and out-source the production printing.

I have an old 430 also, which I have seldom used.  When I did need to use 
it recently, I couldn't get the driver to load properly onto my computer. 
It is also slow.  Not that I need a heavy volume to print, or require the 
speed.  Maybe I'm just a victim of the current state of technology...
