I am wondering if printing from for instance Quark Xpress would do the job? It can setup whatever paper size you want ... however I think that is would print lots of pages, and you have to stick them together ... so perhaps a RIP would be required afterall. But I think it would ignore the file size restriction imposed by photoshop's pixel limits.

No, it is a limtation of the driver.

Only a thought from an ignorant amateur considering buying a 3880 ... and I recall years ago using a Canon 1290, making a large poster from I think 16 A3 sheets ... I could not tell where the sheets joined, so the poster (using cheapish matt paper) looked like it was a super high quality job from a super quality wide format printer.

The 3880 wil certainly do A4, A3, and A2, but no more.

Without an RIP, for the 3880, is 37.4" the max paper length, or max print area?

If the latter, do you feed paper a bit longer than 37.4", or does it bleed to the edges?

Printing posters that way does not mean sticking the pieces together before printing, but gluing together calibrated crops after printing, still sticking together 2 or 4 A2 sheets (even slightly cropped) is already quite a nicely sized poster
