Well it's been a while since I did mine but I do recall going deep into the settings on the printer and chosing the banner paper. I cranked the resolution up all the way up and it took 45 min. to print it out.

I used a Epson stylus color 600. I have WinMe so you might have a variation to these instructions.

Here's what you need to do from the control panel.

1st crank up your resolution by clicking on: Control panel, printers, epson icon, printer,properties, main,advanced, more settings, print quality to 1440dpi, OK button.

Now for the paper: printers,epson,printer,properties,paper,user defined (now put in a numer of inches that exceeds the length of your marquee & hit the landscape button while your here), apply button.

Start printing your file and go watch an episode of Starcade on G4 because it'll take almost that long for it to print out.

Let me know if you have any problems.
