PostWhich A 3 printer?

by dianerogers » Wed Sep 11, 2013 1:03 pm

Hi
Just wondered if anyone uses printers as I do. I have an old HP A3 inkjet printer which is on its last legs and need to buy a new one.
I need a printer which will take fabric as I usually print on silk attached to paper with photomount spray. My printer has a manual feed available at the back which makes this relatively easy. The bottom feed didn't work without the fabric coming away from the paper. So has anyone any ideas on which new printer I should go for?
I have also tried an old Epsom Photo printer which was rubbish and didn't produce the colour and sharpness of the old HP printer. Also the inks were always running out or drying up and I found having to constantly clean the jets used up all the ink.
I'm not sure how much longer my old faithful HP will last ... so can anyone help?

Hello Diane,
Brother do a selection of A3 printers. I am not sure about the feed requirement you want though.
But the colour is good and reliable as I have used mine for about 4yrs now.

Hi
Thanks for the suggestion. How many ink cartridges does it use?

Hello Diane, My printer takes 3 colour and black. Approx £8 each at staples.
