It's a bit of a rip...
In the interests of print quality I've been searching for RIP (Raster Image Processor). They re not cheap, and I spent weeks looking at a lot of them, and in the end opted for Posterjet based on a positive FLAAR report.
My printer is a supported model, and the installation went fairly well, but I couldn't see my various papers listed there. So, I called support and the recommendation was that I print out test charts and purchase printer profiles for 30 euros per paper (the first three being free). In my studio there are a dozen rolls of canvas or of paper, and I'm looking up at them with trepidation!
The team in Germany have been very supportive, in fact they phoned me and talked me through the options and settings. and now I'm looking for a decent photospectrometer with a view to making my own profiles. I want to experiment with different media, and I can't stand to be restricted to just a few brands.
Quality is everything. I've seen some really terrible exhibited prints, and I'm determined to make the best...
£80 Soak Stain (Oct 2017). Quite a large print supplied without a frame. It's a very imposing 24" x 34" Signed on the front, signed and titled on the back. Laughably small edition of just 20 prints...
