I’m trying to purchase another press (I have an 8×12 C&P NS right now) and I’m trying to decide between a 10×15 C&P and a 12×18 C&P. So my question for you C&P users is: if you were choosing a press strictly based on size, not difficulty moving or price, which one would you choose and why? I tend to assume that bigger is better but maybe I’m mistaken?
I’d go ahead and get a 12×18 if I had no barriers. If you’re comfortable with a machine of that size, I think it’ll totally be worthwhile. The printing area and strength of the press will be nice to have around, even if it is a giant beast of a machine. 🙂
I have a C&P 8 x 12 that I use everyday and a 12 x 18 that I use about once a month – I say for sure go for the larger one so you can do 11 x 17 posters. Otherwise it’s not worth having one barely larger.
