Dan: Thanks for your reply. I presently use a paper size 8.5x11 230 gsm 61lb 11 mil double sided from Staples at $8.00 for 50 sheets . I tried the Epson double sided matt but it is only 47lb 9.7 mil and not as bright. The 7900 won't print borderless on widths less than 13" . The boarder that I have been able to set is 1/2" left right and 1/4" top and bottom I have been unable to change that except for the left margin to 1/4". This is the major reason that I print calendars on the small printer. If I up the size to 13" I have to find a roll of double sided paper buy a new binding machine. I am not making any money off the calendars and am just a hobbyist.
Thanks Hugowolf for your input.
,Called epson tonite spoke to sales asked about ink coverage on the small photo printers and was told that a set of cartridges would last for 500!!!!!!!!!!!! pages, this after me stating that I was printing full page colour, i t now appears that the quality of information from the phone reps is not there. After this I contacted customer service no longer a toll free call spoke to someone in Singapore at the 2nd level his advice after 45 min of truing to get information on why a software update wouldn't install I was told that I must have a hardware problem and to take it to a service centre. So much for the great support that epson used to provide. I have been purchasing their printers for the past 17 yrs. but now they don'r seem much different from other printer companies re service.
Thanks for putting up with the rant.
