OK, so I have now noticed that one of the print sizes I would like to offer because the aspect ratio is native to today's DSLR's is not available with some paper manufactures like Epson & BC. The size is 16 x 24. Seems Epson makes it the most difficult as they don't even offer a 17" roll of their VFA for me to cut my own. What are some of you doing to over come this? BC offers their EV in a 17" roll but the roll part kind of scares me since the paper is 310g. I'm thinking the paper curl will be tough to manage at this weight?

My plan was to offer most of my prints in the two standard aspect ratios, 3:2 & 4:5 with pre determined sizes as to not allow the client have the option to crop during an online sale. With the 3880 I have most of the 3:2 covered with the 3880 but fall short at the 16 x 24 if I want to use the Epson VFA and print at home. Prints larger then this I will have to outsource for now to my local print house.

Red River seems to cover the the 16 x 24 with their 17 x 25. What would be the equivalent paper to The Epson VFA or the BC EV from Red River?

Are there better solutions out there? Would I be better off buying a 24" roll and adjusting the print size to 23" x 15.3" ?

Seems like there is a lot of road blocks in the printing game......
