A4, A3 or A3 Plus printer sought with good CMYK colour accuracy


New Member
I can't afford a large format good quality printer ie A2 and larger forr my poster work/artwork but I am looking for a smaller affordable printer to use for colour experimenting so I can get the colours right using CMYK as a measure before getting posters printed at the larger sizes. Some of the obvious questions are: which brand to go for, Canon, Epson or HP, archival or dye ink, how many inks to use, running costs etc. Any pointers will be gratefully received. Thanks.
