Default Printer brand advice

What brand/type of printer do you use to print your films? We have one that can print 11x17 - one color only. It doesn't have ripping software to do layers. I have a local printing company print out all of my 2+ color films right now. Looking to get our own printer but have no idea where to start. I need it to print 12x18 size film and layers. Any advice welcome, thanks!

I use both an Epson WF-7520 and an Epson 1430. Both capable of running 13x19 and I've had luck with the solid density through settings that work well. The 1430 can be converted to an all black system as well with Dye inks, for maximum density.

For films only, I'm not sure if one would be better than the other. You want the blackest of black for your films.
