I have printed on the 13" x 38" sheets, but if you want a little white space outside the image for framing, you end up with basically a 12" x 36" panorama.  I do not have a 3880, just a 3000, but I presume they work pretty much the same.  I have also printed on roll paper.  I find absolutely no problem doing this (although I wish Epson printers still had the automatic paper cutter they had on the older 2200).  Very easy to cut to final length with a good linear paper cutter.  Only issue at all is paper curl.  If you just stretch the paper out on the floor or counter, and weight the corners down for 24 hours, the paper will straighten out and relax a lot.  But for final flatness, the print must be at least cold mounted on something like gator board.  Also, even though the stated "limit" on print length is 37", I have found that using the printer driver, you can create a much longer print dimension using a "custom" print setup.  I have printed banners at 48" using roll paper and a custom setup.

Only my opinion. It's worth what you paid for it. Your mileage may vary! ;-} www.dougwigton.com/
