  • imagesetter what do you think?

    Hi,
    I am looking for a film system that will give me up to 16x 20 positives. The problem I am having at the moment with either laser printers and ink-jet systems is that they have an uncontrollable shrinkage problem, I need precision printing/developing of transparent film/vellum where each piece if film either does not shrink OR the shrinkage is identicle so that I am able to compensate.
    Also, I am looking for as compact a system as possible, any ideas would be appreciated!
    Thanks GAry

      It seems like when ever someone has a printer question I direct them to xante. I am really impressed with the quality of their products. This sounds exactally like what you are looking for.

      Some advice is profound, some is clever. The above post is a good example of both.

        Actually, I have used an xante and have found that the film shrinks like a pecker in ice water!
        The one I used is a couple of years old! I am though, open to progress and will check them out.
        Thanks GAry

          Since the Film Maker 4 is a computer to film processor I would bet that it is dead on. The only problem is it only prints 13" to 35" and you need it 3" bigger.

            Try Agfa. You should be able to get your hands on a used Agfa imagesetter for a song. Also film can be expensive so do not buy your film from Agfa, find a 3rd party source and you'll save hundreds on film.

              Hello, welcome to the forums.

              I agree that the puzzle pieces aren't quite in the "right" positions. I like the way they are placed randomly, but it's way too cluttered.

              I'll say the same thing I say all the time. Design your logo in black and white. And design it with a pencil and paper, not on the computer. When I design a logo, the computer is only on maybe the last...

              I like the idea, but not the execution. I also don't like that the puzzle pieces are so randomly placed. They look like a mistake. If you are going to do something like that, simplify it way down and...

              Here's my attempt at designing my own logo and business card. Work involves both modern and traditional residential design (architecture and interiors) so wanted a logo that implies both.

              The puzzle pieces are so small that when you scale it down, they get lost. I also think the logo image is too large compared to the text. I like how tracked-out you have the text, but I think the overall...
