I went into the suggested website (HP.COM) and searched on “Banner printer”. I was directed to the UK version. The problems are that in the main it talks about how to buy or print commercial plastic banners; there are a few suggested printers said to have the function but they are no longer available here or are available only in the US (I am in the UK), or it suggests A3 printers which on closer examination don’t have the required function specified. So far I have checked the first 5 pages of 10…. And they are all similar.
I think that the HP site is out of date, or there are indeed no current HP A4 banner printers on sale in the UK. Like Colin, some months ago I did all the usual things (much web-searching and phoning) to track down a banner printer in the UK, totally without success.
Can I reiterate my earlier request: is there anyone out there who has managed, recently, to buy an A4 printer with banner function? Any make, and in the UK? Or does anyone know where one can be obtained now?
