I guess the big question is,was the accelerated print dryer included in the $1,000 from Epson?
Doesn't look like it as it is not addressed.
I see a similar firm you referenced sells the dryer. (Maxunion dryer $572.00)
Lastly can you use the take up reel without a dryer? Looks like that dryer is needed when using the reel to insure
a dry print when over rolling.
