From past experiences with dual purpose printers (we used the Epson 4800). You will deal with more ink cost than you normally would with just 2 separate printers. Every time you run a clean you will be draining both inks. Even if you are running cotton for a week you are draining your sublimation ink through cleans and maintenance.

That is true, and the firmware on either the 4800 or the 4880 will force head cleaning at pre-determined intervals, whether the heads need cleaned or not.

The epson 4880, but I don't know how big it is.
The carriage width is 17 inches. It can use roll paper so the paper length is not fixed. I'm not sure about his needs on paper size except what was posted would come out to about 63 inches (160 cm), if that is the width then can't use the 4880 for sure. The 9600 was only 44 inches width I think.
