Hey all,

 

I want to print 24x36 (or in the ballpark) maps on synthetic paper.  I've contacted a few printers and for the small quantities I need the cost is pretty prohibitive.  This would be for my personal use as well as some side freelance mapping work.  They are recreation maps so that is why I wanted to be able to print on synthetic paper.  I am more experienced in making maps than printing them, so I don't really know what is required in terms of printers/ink/paper.  Of course I am looking for an economical option, at least as much as is realistic.  Does anyone know any good models, or what type of printer is needed and if I need special ink or whether I can even get synthetic paper in 24 inch rolls?

 

Thanks!

 

Patrick

I'm aware of a company in Salt Lake City called IGage that I think sells the kind of paper you want. I've tested the paper on my HP printer and it seems to work, but I haven't ordered a roll yet. Probably should.
