I recently advised someone to look for an old wide carriage dot matrix printer - I have used one for years to accurately print strips 14" x 44" . They were selling pallets of them for $10 at the Md. state surplus outlet a few years ago. Today I looked on line to buy a new ribbon for the printer (an Epson FX-1050) and was astonished to see that they are still for sale - at $2459 each!! They are available on EBay for $20 up, but the shipping would be costly - they are heavy!
