Absolutely not. You need at least a 24" (preferably 44") printer especially if you want to print canvas, as well as economical ink costs (and under no circumstances use 3rd party ink) . Those little amateur 17" printers will cost you a fortune in ink.

As i mentioned in previous post. First i'm trying to test the water a bit. If i see that i can enter the market, and make sales, i will upgrade my equipment for sure. Right now i'm starting this business from my apartment.

The 24" Canon Pro 2100 is a good starting point. All large format printers have large ink tanks which you need to keep the cost/ml down.

Can you tell me what is the Epson equivalent for Canon Pro 2100

Canvas is best for unframed wall art. You can print up to 18" wide with a 24" printer and 38" wide with a 44" printer.

I know. But that will be my next step.

Luster RC paper is the cheapest and also looks good but has to be framed

Thanks, that was a great help.

I use Rotatrim.

That helped me also a lot Thank you again

Thank you so much in advance.

Happy new Year and best wishes to all of you.
