Congrats on scoring the deal on the wide format printer. I think I'm going to look for one when I buy my next printer.
It is amazing how cheap these printers have become.
Epson had the WF-7210 on sale for CAD$149.99 I guess it has been replaced by a newer model. The guy I bought it from burnt through the supplied ink cartridges very quickly and then discovered that it would cost around $100 to replace all 4 cartridges, as I only wanted it for album pages and not as my primary printer, I wasn't too concerned but I believe that this particular model can be expensive to run, especially for colour printing.
So if whatever printer you buy is going to be your primary printer make sure to read some reviews first :)
That looks freakin' amazing. You mentioned using the 140-weight paper; do you get the impression that running the 240 through the printer would cause it to crinkle or bend
According to the specs, this particular model printer should have no problem with the 240gsm paper. Using the rear slot manual feed the paper takes a fairly direct path so there is almost no bending.
I am happy with the 140 paper, but it is about as light as I would like to go and wonder if the heavier 240 wouldn't have been a better choice, it is always difficult buying online and not being able to examine the actual product.
