    Roll Paper



    Hi. Would anyone know where I can find 12 or 13 inch wide photo or fine art paper rolls? I intend to print panoramas on an Epson R1800 or R1900. I'm new to printing my own stuff and any suggestions would be a big help. Thanks.

    Yes, I did. Studio 58 only prints and Epson doesn't even sell the paper they advertise as supported by their printer. Thanks.

    That experience is a bit normal for me.

    At least it was in the past.

    I used to own an Epson desktop printer. I would have my mom purchase my annual supply of Epson Heavyweight Matte for me each time she would go to the US.

    My annual paper supply would have to get shipped home in a balikbayan box.

    I would have to do this before because the paper was hard to source locally.

    Cheers!

    I don't think 13 inch rolls are supported in the country. If yes, then probably needs to be custom ordered. The way I do it is to go to an Epson distributor- ATI, CGI, etc. Buy a 24 inch roll from them and have them cut it for you.

    ATI is no longer a disty of epson. If you are using R1800, the spool of 24 inch paper is different from R1800. What CGI selling is sheeted fine art paper not in rolls 17 in printer and below. epson fineart papers has a big spool, about 3 inch. and it comes only in 24 and 44. better check also the icc profiles. the icc profiles maybe you are using like radiant white is intended for canvass not for the fineart. please double @ epsonusa.
