I need a high-resolution (>=1200 dpi) and low-price (<=$1000) b/w printer for color separation. What kind of printer should I buy?
The problems that I'm aware of:
1. The laser printers stretches the film (even more than 1 mm)
2. The laser printers' dots are not very clear.
3. The ink jet printers' real resolution is usually very low.
4. The solid-ink printers' precision is not very good, and their resolution is lower than the laser printers' resolution.
