    Hey Guys,

    Looking to get a design printed with a latex printer and then close up pictures sent to me so I can take a peek at the quality of printing.

    Anyone interested to do this for me if I send them over the files?

    Thanks! :)

    It’s a sign printer, intended for normal signage viewing distances of several feet or more.

    His reply is telling you that this machines output isn't designed for close viewing. It will appear grainy due to its dot size (12pl).

    Print quality is fine if your settings are OK.
    If it's grainy, then your settings are off (I print small text and stickers with it - better than my old Roland VS540i that I loved). If you want really fine print/smooth graphics, Epson is a way to go.

    p.s. I think that a properly setup file helps a lot (I prefer setting it up in RGB, check if RGB/CMYK are close (or convert from RGB>CMYK>RGB in Photoshop), rasterize (JPEG/max quality), and put cut line if I'm doing print/cut stuff in the SAi Flexi 12).

    To be honest, I have way more problem with a freaking cutter that's one day excellent, and tomorrow off by a 1/8".

    If you need really high res I can print for you on my demo Epson S80 and then cut on my demo Summa cutter
