Hi, I hope you'll excuse the off topic post - it is photography related though! I've been asked to produce a calendar of local photographs for a charity in my village. Having costed up the production using an external bureau, it occured to me that I could buy a decent colo(u)r laser printer for less money and do it myself which would give me much more flexibility. However, I've heard that lasers aren't "good enough" for photo reproduction. Is that still true or has the market moved on enough to make them viable now? I don't want to use inkjet because my experience of them is that they're unreliable for big production runs and would be too expensive in inks. Is laser my only option, or are there cheap dye-subs or something else I should be looking at? I may be barking up the wrong tree entirely and should go back to the printing bureau, but I thought the collective wisdom and experience of the LUG could be hugely helpful! As someone else said: "I now return you to your scheduled program" :-) Simon.
