Even though the Epson 3800 is more
expensive, it is a better deal than the 2400 since it includes $500 worth of
ink. You will spend considerably more money for ink using the 2400 when you
consume the same amount of ink. The dot pattern of the 3800 is quite a bit
better than the 2400 which may be an important consideration since you are
making positives for polymer gravures.
You can purchase a refurbished model for
$995 from Epson.com which includes free ground shipping.

Okay... good info, thanks everyone.
What about the Epson 2400?
I'm sure I'd like to eventually go up to a 17" printer, but I'm choking on
the 3800 price tag. I could do a lot of work with a 13" printer for
now, and the 2400 is about $600 online.
What kind of recommendations for 13" printers? Epson, right?
