Printers for Family Trees

Eric, almost all printers for household and most office use will print your tree but if i try to print just one branch with 140 relies of my tree on my printer "Not a cheap one at just over £450" it takes 28 pages of A4 or 6 pages of A3, i can fit it on less pages but the font would be too small to read easily, If you want a professional tree printed then you need to pay a professional who will use an industrial type of printer designed for that purpose.


Edit, you could try a printer that takes A3 paper and see it you can buy paper in a A3 x 30ft role But not sure if you could set the printer to print the full role without page breaks

Thank you for your reply, but I was hoping to buy a printer so that i may be able to print my trees as and when I want them.

Does anyone know of a printer that will print a family tree on one piece of paper.
My descendants tree has 760 people and it measures 30 feet by 1 foot.
I am using Family Tree Maker.
