Default Copying a large document

Does anyone know a print/copier shop with a large flatbed (not roll
feeder) copier - A0 or A1 - please?

I have a VERY large document with attachments fixed to it which I'd
like to get copied. The attachments can't be removed. Around 1990 I
took a similar document into one of those walk-in High Street instant
print/copy shops & they copied it on a flat bed (A0 or A1 - can't
recall which) copier.

Even on an A0 copier it will take 4 copies to cover the whole doc.

Now going back (& then phoning around) all these print shops only have
large roller feed type copiers for large documents. You can't (of
course) feed my doc through these.

I visit Leeds area, E Midlands & London from time to time, but
anywhere in this country will do.

Hope this is not too OT - but once I have the copy the next stages are
defintely DIY!

TIA

You may have to phone around the graphics design type places to find out if
they have that kind of facility you can use. I think you'll also find it a
bit more expensive to do than it was back in 1990 though.

Much cheaper than 1990, IMHO.

1996 was when theis stuff became affordable, 2000 for cheap. By 2005
you;ll be able to buy the kit for less than using it for an hour in
1990.

Worth calling 'The Architect Shop' in York 01904 632313
Small place but packed with kit. Adam or any of the others there should be
able to help.
If they can't do it they'll be able to pass you on to someone who can.

Our local building control / planning department will copy full size A0 for
a fee - maybe yours will too

Your best bet may be to photgraph it with a digi camera, use software to
tidy it up and reassemble, and get the resultant digital file printed.

Depends on how acurate ou meed it.


I ofetn copy A1 drawings using multiple A4 flat bed sacns matched up and
poutput to my A1 plotter.


TIA
