Does anyone know about these Epson printers D series? I am in Europe and these are the following printers on the market: EPSON Stylus C88, D68 or D88. Does anyone know which one is the best to buy, for heat transfers? :confused:
Thnx in advance!

They are the European versions of the same printers we have here. Probably different power set up. They all are pigment ink printers so they are great. The D88 may be the new c88+ here. it is just a tad faster. best thing to do is go to www.epson.com for more info, Lou

I use the D88 printers, I have one with a bulk sublimation system, another with the standard inks for transfers. They are superb printers for the price, UK£55 at the moment. Not designed to last forever which should be factored in, I would reckon on replacing maybe once a year. Only drawback I can see is that they are A4 not A3! Otherwise, an excellent printer.

Go figure eh? If it was an A3 printer it would raise the price times 3... How long have you had the D88?

I've been using D88 for last couple of months. Yes, the A3 I would have bought was £300+, quality of print was exact. There are a few items that I would like the A3 for but when 95% of your work is A4 you have to look at the outlay sensibly!

Heya Justin, thnx for the response, and I was wondering what type of paper do you use & where do you order it? (Since we are both in Europe and most of the people on the forum are in N. America...)
