    10 Jun 2022

    So far I have limited my prints to maximum size of A2 (42x59,4cm or 16.53x23.39”, with a printable area of 41.32x58.60cm or 16.27x23.07”). Only in some rare instances I felt limited by that, since I was not able to produce true 40x60cm prints, a common size for framing, and only…
