I know from the comments most of you use HP's or Epson. I have been using a HP 6310 with great results. It died last week. I have purchased a HP 7500A on Sunday Feb. 26 and returned it Feb. 28 because it didn't leave at least a quater inch seam allowance all around the picture on the 8.5x11 sheet of fabric. The color from the new ink cartridges that were separate blue, yellow& magenta were not a vivid as the tricolor single cartridge. I then bought the Epson Artisan 730 and the HP 4500.
Last night the Epson uses 5 color cartridges and 1 black. It has the option of printing with borders or edge to edge. I selected with borders. To my surprise their border is 1/8". I cannot find a way to increase it.
The HP 4500 prints with a standard 1/8" border on all pictures.
I am trying to take a 4x6 picture,englared to poster size of 5 sheets wide by 5 sheets tall to be sewn together to make one big picture. The newer Hp printers have removed that ability from the printer advanced preferences according to HP. I spent 3 hours on the phone Mon. with HP. Apperently the poster setting was not a popular asset for customers and has been elimated.
I need to get the quilt done by March 13. Please help. Let me know the model number of the printer you use for printing on fabric and also if you've printed a picture in poster size to sew together. Desperately seeking a printer.
