I have a R1800 and really enjoy printing with it.
I was thinking of printing canvas, has anyone tried it at all and if so how did you go and what type of canvas did you use?

Just tried printing to canvas a couple days ago on my new R1800. Results were excellent. The only problem was with loading the canvas itself. Took several tries before it loads correctly. Canvas is heavy weight but not as stiff as a sheet of normal paper. The trick I came up with is to use a couple of sheets of bond paper over the top of the canvas. Hold on the those sheets so they don't load with the canvas and everything works fine. The bond paper helps keep the edge of the canvas straight so it will feed into the printer proplerly. Read the Epson manual regarding loading canvas, You need to use the single sheet loader.
BTW - the canvas I used was by Lumijet. It came in a sample pack of assorted papers.
