The Epson Stylus Pro 9600 arrived today. A full blog entry is on its way but I'm posting this interim entry as I am very excited about this new piece of equipment. :-) There are two other similar printers that are available for hire in Edmonton but I am going after a different market than either of these companies. In addition, my cost of materials allows me match pricing with the University of Alberta's Computer Network Services large format printing service which is only available to staff and student and prints on plain paper for prints on rolls wider than 36" and basic coated glossy poster paper for prints 36" wide and narrower and they are using machines which are not designed primarily for true photographic reproduction. My 9600 will be driven by Colorbyte's ImagePrint RIP (raster only) which will allow me to achieve a wider gamut and better colour accuracy (I think), than Epson's driver while using the same archival-quality UltraChrome pigment inks and photographic substrates. It will also allow me to quickly gang and next multiple images for printing and proofing on pieces off larger rolls of paper. More on all of this later and hopefully with some photos.
Grrr... I am so irritated by some people.
Why not before...? Why now? Stupid leeches, hmph. I'm want to stomp on them and grind the heel of my stilletos on their face and then their camera, hmph.
Did Mark call you btw? He's so cute. I guess he needs the poster for tomorrow, eh? Call me!
HEY! This is MY blog . . . stop talking to each while I'm absent. =P j/k
Hahah, you people are funny. And I can't believe I went to take photos of garbage bins after leaving The Guilty Martini last night. No good pics, unfortunately but maybe something usable as a web graphic or something.
Awww, poor baby . . . you were up still at 6am? =( Need a hug? =)
SNIFF! Yes, I am glad I didn't go to the party now... otherwise I wouldn't be in bed even after 6AM! But at least I re-wrote my entire paper and paraphrased everything! And of course, I want one of your super-xiao-xiong-hugs!
