I think your only hope will be HP or Canon.. So far they have decided not to go there.. Constructively.. if the issue is really space for a printer well then your really stuck.. and that's that.. (but you've created a box for yourself) but if that's not the case.. then why not consider a larger format printer..I actually have a 60" printer for those big 20m panoramas (if I ever could get a customer for them...). It's old, 600dpi, and not very light-resistant with the inks I'm using, without protection.As my old desktop printer (only A4) apparently will not get drivers for Win8 it looks like it's time to move on.As I also had to scrap my old Epson 3000 (A2) a while ago, I've had a 'hole' between A4 and large-format, which I was hoping to fill with a good A3+ printer with roll paper option. I don't print much documents/letters. I'm not going to compete with the big guys for printing art and other large-format stuff.Looks like my inital impression was right about Epson being about the only brand of the larger desktop inkjets that can use rolls?You can't really see it on a photo of a printer if it can take rolls, and for some odd reason they often don't bother to mention it in the specs (not even Epson).an A3+ can print sideways on a 24" printer .. check prices on material going that way and compare.. What I'm suggesting is that sometimes the walk in price on a printer is deceiving.. So if you save a few hundred on the purchase then they stick to you for ever more.. well you've really lost.. I do prints buy the sq inch.. that's how my world works.. So I honestly watch my costs relative to that .. For me their are two important things .. I need to make totally incredible prints for my clients and I need to make money doing that or I'm history.. It's really way simple.Sooooo.. to sum up on turkey day.:-) making art is the most wonderful thing in the world ..I just couldn't imagine doing anything else.. the world is changing as is our artists..and our clients... It's hard and has been for a while .. but I believe.. and will never sacrifice quality or my efforts towards making art live another day.. So ..lol.. I'm not sure if I owe an apology for my boldness or not.. you all got a little look inside of a fruit cake.. ..only on Thanksgiving!!!....guess I got sentimental.. I need to say this then go help make dinner in town.. If your in the art business .. especially now..... making a small box is like pretty risky.. boldness actualy does better..

A desktop printer is what I'm looking for, that can do both rolls and
normal A4/A3 printing.
I'm sure those Canon IPFs are great, but they are not that handy for doing
office printing on A4/A3 paper - and they are quite expensive.
And I do have Qimage, which can handle long prints very well, as well as
function as a RIP, and place several images/documents on the same sheet of
paper. A big time/money-saver with great printing quality :)
The problem with smaller Epsons is that they often have paper feed
problems - and the inks are very expensive. But if they are the only ones
with optional paper roll feeding, I guess the choice will be between the
