Thank you for your comments.  Archival isn't really a consideration.  I'd just like them on a beautiful watercolor paper to similate originals.  I'll keep looking.....

Best,
Sharon

You didn't say what size you're working at? 
I have an Epson large format that I'm fairly happy with re: transparent W/C reproduction but it certainly gobbles the expensive high-capacity ink cartridges.  I just use it for Giclees.
Can you find a local printer to run the projects? Is 'archival' going to be a consideration here?
My gut feeling is that some cost/quality compromises might be in order here, but shop around. I'm sure folks here have some good people to recommend.

Hi All,

I am a calligrapher/botanical illustrator looking for help with printing of watercolor art.  I make custom maps that up until now I have printed as line art and hand-painted the color work because I have never had good luck with print quality of watercolors.  Does anyone know of a good method to print on good heavy stock so that the watercolor quality looks original?  Clients don't want to pay for giclee prints....these are wedding maps and such.

I'm considering purchasing an Epson R1400 to do it myself but not sure it will be any better and might be more trouble than it's worth.  Quanitities are usually 50-100.

Thank you in advance.
