Let me know if 89.1cm is too wide for most of you- I've only had one reply to this thread.

Hi Lucy,

To do this you'll need a B1 press which is pretty much the biggest available.

You may be better off going to http://www.selectprinter.com, going to the Equipment Search, select Printing Presses, then Litho Sheet Fed and then B1 4 Colour.

This will show you all of the BPIF members who have a B1 press and who will be able to do your job... don't expect it to be cheap though!

Thanks Josh, I guess I better revise my design. Would a single fold A4 landscape design be easier/cheaper? (the length of two A4 landscape sheets?)

Yes, you should be able to do that on a B2... mite want to try Ray at A Local Printer (http://www.alocalprinter.com/uk/contact/) as I'm pretty sure he's got a B2.

All the paper sizes are listed here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/ISO_216

You just have to remember that the printing is going to be done on a sheet which has similar proportions to regular A4 (just bigger) so doing something long and thin requires very big sheets.

We're SRA3 (320x450mm) so obviously quite a bit smaller than what you require.

I suppose you could also look into having it done on a web (roll fed) press, again try the Select Printer site to search for a printer with this equipment.

Hope that helps!
