    I have an Epson Stylus 7800 large format printer in the studio in Germany. However, I have not printed anything using it for about 2 years and decided it was about time I did. I powered it up today and it went through its usual and lengthy self test and decided, not surprisingly, that the nozzles needed cleaning. This it did with the usual instructions to lift levers and lower them again. And then it printed a perfect test pattern.

    Now, I was pretty confident that this would be the result, but even so it always impresses me, especially given the unreliability of most office / small desk-top printers. Now all I need to do is decide what I'l going to print!

    I think a square crop of this one has been requested though.

    Those are indeed large printers, no room for one here, but not hugely expensive on the Used market, I see. I think Susan would say it's either me or the printer, she wouldn't have room for both in house!

    How large will the square crop be?

    30 x 30 cm. One thing you could pass on to Susan is that the printers, while large, have an on/off switch! Just saying! ;)
