I am considering purchasing a Wide Format Printer, to regularly print out pieces of Artwork.
Initially, the Artwork will need to be printed as a standard Digital Print. As time goes by, I would then like to start printing out the Artwork as a series of Giclee Prints as well as the standard prints.
With this in mind, would it be okay to use the same printer for both Print variants or should I have 2 separate printers?
The reason for asking is that I would be looking to use Dye based inks for the standard Digital Prints with Pigment based inks for the Giclee Prints.
If it would be okay to use the same Printer, would there be any issues in interchanging between the differing inks. When I say interchanging, I specifically mean swapping around regularly on an as and when basis.
Furthermore, I would like to only use 4 of the available 12 colour cartridges for for the standard Digital Prints. Would this be possible on a Wide Format Printer or would all 12 be required for all Prints?
