We re­view and rate six top-end A3+ print­ers

egu­lar A4 photo print­ers are com­pact and con­ve­nient but, if you want a pic­ture to frame and hang on the wall, the max­i­mum size of their out­put leaves a lot to be de­sired. By up­grad­ing to an A3+ printer you can gen­er­ate photo prints of up to 19x13 inches in size. A large print has much more wow fac­tor, while you still have full con­trol over the print­ing process and re­tain the rel­a­tive im­me­di­acy of cre­at­ing prints on your own desk­top, with­out hav­ing to upload im­ages and wait for photo prints to be de­liv­ered in the post.

De­signs dif­fer when it comes to large-for­mat print­ers. Some use dye-based inks, which typ­i­cally give the smoothest out­put on glossy paper. Pig­ment-based inks are more ro­bust and a bet­ter choice for matte me­dia. An­other con­sid­er­a­tion is whether you only want to make colour prints or if you’re also keen on top qual­ity black-and-white photo out­put.
