Wild Ozark’s Canon Pro2000 Adventure

Just getting the printer home was an adventure all by itself. This Canon Pro2000 is a large format printer, but the smallest of the large format line in that series. It’ll print up to 24″ wide which is plenty big enough for me. Besides, I don’t have a spot in the house where I could …
