It's by far the quickest way to get through them, but it does turn into an epic arseache without a big scanner.

The scanner is 60% of the cost of the scanner.

Although it is reel to reel, the printer I work with will do a max of 800x333mm for any individual image.

However as it can do that with zero gap between images, and it can handle variable data, clever design could get you a single image 2000000x333mm
