    I finally got my HP1120c wide format printer working and now
    I am looking for some wide card stock to take advantage of it.
    I thought this was discussed before and someone recomended
    having a print shop cut some special sizes up. Has anyone
    had any luck?
    Thanks

    Try http://www.unisourcelink.com/

    You can also try office supply stores, some actually carry 11x17 sizes! Most can probably special order it for you if they don't have it in stock.

    Yes, a local printing shop (not knikos or a similar "copy" shop) cut some up for me awhile back.

    Hope this helps.

    Not much more to say to the first reply other than yup, yup, yup, and exactly right. After purchasing that bad boy, I hope you still have your firstborn.

    I have the 1220c and have found the best way to get paper is to go to the family run printers, not Kinko's etc as they just dont care about an order below 10,000 sheets


    I got my card and paper cut to 13x19 inch at a small printers and it was quite cheap...500 card and 250 paper..worked out under 50 Euro's...nice people I wish I needed more

    Thanks for the ideas. I have a 1220c but when I had it apart to
    clean it and repair the power supply I lost the serivce tray. I just
    bought a 1120c because I thought it was a 1220c but I am having
    trouble getting it to feed right and print with good quality. I might
    just order the service tray and use the newer 1220c. But thanks
    for the help, I just need to find the right print shop now.
    Later
