This is one of those things on my "Must-Have-Someday" list. A large format color printer can be so very pricey to purchase brand new but if you're willing to buy used it becomes a far more attainable purchase. Wouldn't it be fantastic to print out patterns without having to piece together paper and tape together? Or print large scale photos to frame without having to employ the services of Staples?
Here are some used printers out there that are surprisingly affordable! All are color and have a resolution of 2400x1200 dpi. Currently on auction at $400 + $120 shipping on Ebay. HP DesignJet 130
