Life saving printer!

This printer saved the day! After weeks trying unsuccessfully to print the rest of my book Behind the Scenes: Creating Theatre for the Very Young on the Epsom inkjet printers at edinburgh college of art, I was forced to make a last minute purchase of this printer. I chose inkjet over laser printing, as from what I'd learned it would be the most suitable way of reproducing my ink and watercolour illustrations to a high standard of finish for my final assessment.

Strangely, there don't seem to be any printers who reproduce commercially using ink-jet printing. The only place I found was a 'giclee' fine art printers in Leith, but they said it might be quite complicated to print the imposition of the book.

P.S. Thanks to my mum for waiting in all day for the delivery while I was busy screenprinting!
