New to Typophile? Accounts are free, and easy to set up.
I just graduated from a design academy and I'm starting my own design studio soon. I'm about to buy a printer for proofing purposes but can't decide which printer will suit my needs. I work a lot with typography and illustrations in books, flyers, etc. so full colour and fine printing is a must. At this moment I don't have much money to spend so I had my eye on the Xerox 6600DN. Does anybody know if this printer is good enough for proofing purposes?
I have an art project where I want to print a whole bunch of tiny text onto paper.
The idea is to give out magnifying glasses to patrons so that people can read the tiny text. I want the text to be as small as possible, but still legible using a visual aid like a magnifying glass. It is fine to have the text not legible without a magnifying glass though.
I suspect that a printer's DPI would be important in figuring out the smallest size since you need to fill a character's stroke with sufficient number of dots (ie. ink). For sake of discussion, let's assume the printer is a commercial printer who mass prints books.
How small in pts can I print the text?
Any help is appreciated. Thanks.
Good afternoon fellow folks of fonts,
The company I work for is going to purchase a new printer for my department (Design Department). We are currently using a Recoh C8111... we'd like something as good or better. It's a Laser Toner, maximum size is 12x18 (via bypass tray). Any recommendations/experience to be shared?
