    We use an hp5100 Postscript laser printer. It prints on letter - A3 size paper. I use translucent "paper" that has very minimal shrinking (and very cheap, about .12 a sheet of 11.5x17.5). We buy the paper from paper supplier at 23X35 and cut it down to 11.5x17.5 and 8.5x11. We screen print up to 6 colors on t-shirts and other substrates with no problems. With the Postscript printer we can print spot color separations with halftones as well as full color, cmyk separations and get great results directly from Illustrator. We have a roland but we think it would be more of a hassle to use the Roland and be switching papers back and forth. I believe we paid like $1400 brand new about 10 years ago and it is still kicking butt. Oh yes, it's also used for office duties as well. I would definitely go this route again if I had to start all over again.

    I have a question when using the AccuRip system with our Epson. I am set to print Photo Black Ink only. My printer is saying the "light black" cartridge is low. I don't even use that ink. Is there way to change settings so it only uses the T6531 Photo Black cartridge? Also, where can I get these refillable ink cartridges that you use? Our printer is an Epson Stylus Pro 4900. Thank you so much in advance!
