(Max Paper Size) Eposon 3880 -- 17x25" sheets?
« on: December 16, 2009, 11:10:42 AM »

About to purchase the Epson 3880

I dont need large roll support... but I do need 17x25" cut sheets on the Epson.

It says the max size is 17x22" but many ppl have found they can print up to 37" with a custom paper size in the driver.

Does anyone know if the new 3880 Epson printer can also do this.. 17x25" cut sheets?

Thanks for your help, anyone with the printer in hand

Yes you can use 17" x 25" sheets on the 3880 with a user defined paper size.  Borderless is not an option on that or other custom sizes.

37.4" is the max sheet length for that printer.

Great that we can use the 17x25" paper... but how much of that paper can we use.. if not borderless?

can we do the 17" size full borderless... but not all the way to 25"?
or is there going to be a white border 1/2" or what size? around the whole thing?

thanks for answering
Phillip

If I recall correctly it's 0.3 inches on each side.

The Epson drive (on my Mac) has a wide range of paper sizes for bordered and borderless printing. 17x25 is not among them, so you'll need to create a Custom paper size. That option requires the default borders.

I print some 17x25 sheets, printing 16x24 inch images with 0.5 inch borders. I like the look. I use the house brand luster paper from inkjetart.com.
