    Check out Bostick and they have a range of good quality UV units. I have their 16X20. It was around 1000 bucks. It has consistant lighting and is well built.

    Proof that I am printing :-)

    yes, the answer is yes to both, One can print "pastel", "natural spectrum" or "vivid". My "calculations" are often gut instinct. My formulas for mixing the colors is done by eye with past mixes. I like the inexactness of the process. Sort of like dying Easter eggs...there is some control but I...

    No, I DO NOT endorse taking other's photos off the web! AND if I were, I surely wouldn't tell people to watermark to help prevent theft. That would be crosspurposes. I'm not paranoid, I've just worked in advertizing and photography for a long time now and I have listened to people talk about...

    i'm a beginner >.<

    but, a watermark can mean the difference between you having the claim on an image and some one taking it from the web for their own profit. Which is done by unscrupulous people EVERY day! Yes, it may seem elitist, but it is the same reasoning behind kids putting their name on their paper in...
