Epson printers suitable for making screen printing positives on coated film.
EPSON Printers for making Screen Printing Positives

Size matters. You can buy six 13" Epson 1400 for the cost of one Epson 4880's.

You will have to choose an R1800 or R1900 from the printers I saw on the Epson Malaysia site.

Clogged ink heads! When u put a new cartridge in an HP it has a new ink head in the cartridge. When the epson works it does a nice job.....when its working. I have a HP 1220 (discontinued) works great, wouldn't use an epson if you payed me. The HPs have to be matched with the correct film and settings, but once you have it dialed in it is NICE.

i see...i also have hp officejet 4355 all-in-one printer for my fax and phone...it is true what you say...but i prefer to have bulk system install in my printer to minimize the cost...and complain from my customer that when i use hp printer to make film especially when making logo...it is not sharp enough and the fine line not as good as when i use my lexmark z605

My Epson experience is different. I have left my Epson 2200 or R1800 untouched for months. Before I print I clean the nozzles a few times and print. It does improve performance to use the printer regularly.

What are the correct film and settings you have had success with?

The most significant change when Epson introduced the R1900 was a change in the cartridge system making it very difficult to install a bulk ink system by changing the way the chip prevents resetting.

Investigate alternate ink systems and whether or not they will be opaque enough for screen making before you buy.
