Maximum Printable Area Limits for the EPSON Professional Graphic Printer line.
This bulletin was created to inform you of the maximum custom page sizes allowable for EPSON Professional Graphic products.
The tables below show the maximum page sizes allowable for the EPSON Professional Graphics printer line (Desktop and Large
Format). Although this document is meant as a guideline for the maximum page size allowable for each printer, it does not include
printable area (margin) information. Please refer to your user guide for additional information regarding the printable area (margins)
for your particular printer. There are 3 aspects that effect how long of a page your printer can output. Those 3 items are:
1. Operating System.
2. Driver Specification.

    All Epson large format printers use 360dpi as the input resolution (this is the resolution data is rasterized at), therefore when printing from Photoshop, the maximum page length you will be able to output to any Epson large format printer using the standard Epson print driver would be 83.33 inches (30,000 pixels / 360dpi). As for the Epson desktop products, they rasterize data at 720dpi, therefore the maximum page length obtainable with the standard print driver would be 41.67 inches (30,000 pixels / 720dpi).
