I'm considering an Epson 7900, but the reality is, I won't be using it that often. I'm thinking several times a month, sometimes with a month of no use here and there.
Before I get hit with the "It would be a whole lot cheaper just to send the work out..." argument, yes, you're right. But I'm a control freak and spend a lot of time trying to get the color the way I want it, and to hand off the last - and some would say most critical - stage of the process to someone else just hasn't worked for me.
So I'm wondering what happens with head clogs, reliability, etc. when you don't use the printer on a regular basis. I come from the Fuji Pictro world, where all I had to do was add water and print, and it didn't matter how long between runs, it just worked. Looking for larger format printing now, with better paper choices, and hoping the 7900 would fit the bill. Any concerns other than ink? Is paper storage an issue as well? I'm in Houston, lots of humidity, AC on all the time (at least in the summer), if that matters.
Thanks for any advice!
