Just getting started here and are wondering what low cost alternatives to the Epson 1430 printer may exist for making film positives.
- I see at one popular online supplier we can get the below for about $1099
- but some people have said they use a regular laser or inkjet printer and print 2 or 3 positives and register them up to get it real black... is that practical?
What other techniques could we consider if we are not doing half-tone images... (we are starting with all text, spot color and/or solid color art images)
Thanks for any help.
PS - Here is the Epson 1430 package mentioned above for reference...
