    Anyone know where I can get full size( approx 23" x 7" I think) panorama paper ?

    Tried Canon, Epson (I'm using an Epson printer), Papermill Direct etc.etc but nobody seems to stock the panorama format paper. The only other solution I can think of is to use A2 (23 x 16 aprox) but this reduces the choice of surfaces available.

    Any suggestions or other ideas?

    Thanks

    Which printer do you have?

    I have an Epson R1900, and use 13 inch roll paper to print my panoramas. I currently use Permajet Oyster 271 from online paper

    If your printer just handles sheets, you can still cut your chosen size from a roll.

    Thanks Mike; must have missed them when I did a previous web search. I'll give them a try.

    An Epson R2400.

    Must admit I hadn't thought of cutting a sheet from a roll. I assume (without measuring it because it's upstairs and I'm lazy !!) the R2400 will accept a paper width of 13".
    Of course the only problem with a roll is the fact that I would have to print quite a few panoramas!

    Thanks Matt and thewilliam.

    Order it direct from Epson. Their pricing is very competitive.

    The R2400 IIRC has a roll holder which takes 13" rolls, print your pano and trim to size.
    Another vote for Permajet Oyster it is an excellent paper.

    Epson discontinued their 24"x8" panorama paper a few years ago. I think a sheet of A2 cut lengthways is your answer. I've done a couple on A3 cut like this also. There's someone doing pano paper 16" long in a 2.5:1 ratio as far as I can remember, but the makers name escapes me at the moment. I didn't consider buying any as I prefer 3:1, which is the A2/A3 sheet ratio when cut lengthwise.

    As stated in my original post and confirmed by Alex, Epson don't do pano format anymore.

    As suggested I may get some 16" stuff (from ink2Paper as suggested by MikeH) as a trial and then lash out on some Permajet Oyster as it seems to be highly recommended.

    Thanks once again to all for info/suggestions.

    The advantage of a Roll is that you can use it for any size print up to the maximum width of the roll.
    OK, maybe a singe A4 print would waste a fair amount of paper, but no reason why you cannot use it for A3 prints.

    I have a 13x37 print hanging over my desk at the moment, and it does look suitably impressive.

    This is an interesting read about Olmec rolls with an Epson printer. I think this chap might be a member of EPZ too...?

    Olmec rolls are available from Paterson Photographic

    They seem to have a stock number for Olmec 260gsm Satin on a roll measuring 329mm wide, but whether it's still available, I'm afraid I can't answer that.

    I'm a bit of a "printer virgin" and only just received the free sample of A4 Olmec sheets, which I still haven't tried out yet!

    It could be worth giving Paterson's a call to see if the rolls are still available.

    Edit: Where's your question about Satin rolls gone..? Smile
