The Maxx prints 860mm high and 50m long in one piece, the only problem i would have is I dont have a plotter to cut the shapes out.

On the fade front, you should try Frog Juice, if you get an edge, maxx or ink print you just spray this over the surface, before application

There has been loads of problems out there about the difference between RGB and CMYK, in my experiences the edge and Maxx give far better colour if RGB is used, if my client gives me an image I will first take it to photoshop and convert. I have never been a fan of inkjet prints, which is why I purc...

I wish, there are way too many cowboys over here working out of their garden sheds. So called sign experts............So certain jobs you can get more for than others.
And since we dont have to buy in the prints, which would invlove more costs, it works out OK.

Sign Uk, what a load of large format, the best thing was watching the vinyl wrap demo on the Spandex stand......
I would hate to be looking for a printer at present, way too much choices, that's why I just bought the Maxx2.............Excellent.

The best way would be to take a HQ photo of a remote, which would give you great looking shading, then get it printed.

I could quote you for Edge 2 or Maxx prints.

Hi Lor

I am the NI agents for Perspex, and a piece your size would cost you £8.85 + vat.

That will give you an idea of what you should be paying, unfortunately shipping from NI to you would cost £15, which makes it rather expensive.
