Hello DP Community :) I plan to print temporary tattoos on decal papers, and the quality needs to be as high as possible. - Would you suggest this printer for this purpose? - The ink needs to be FDA approved contents, do you know if the inks for this printer are FDA approved, or would cause any trouble when applied on the skin as a temporary tattoo? Thank you all!

The instructions said if I raised the cover then the cart would return to the middle and I could check the cart cover was secure. But it didn't return to the middle. Eventually after waiting 20 mins or more I switched the printer off, switched it back on again...

Canon doesn't offer Epson profiles. Has anyone found or made these? I have both Exhibition Fiber and Velvet Fine Art papers from Epson and want to print on my Canon Pro-1. Thanks very much for any help.

I'm finally biting the bullet and buying a professional printer. I want larger than A4, so have gone for A3+ and have then narrowed my selection to these two models (Canon Pixma Pro-1 or Epson Stylus Photo R3000) on the basis of perceived suitability for B+W printing, as I expect to fully appreciate the additional black tones present in these two printers. Expected workload is sporadic heavy use. When the heavy is on, I expect to be printing perhaps 100+ pages per week. When it's off, I'm...

We are a studio that needs to replace a printer and I am considering these two.  The 16x20 size is not important.  I am leaning towards the Epson because of our history with Epson's but would like anyone else's opinion.  Thanks
