The paper width is 36" and it's scroll-fed.  (The printer will print up
to 44", but I don't have ready access to that sort of media.)  If we're
going to print 36xN (for N >> 24), keep in mind that you're going to
need to have some way to mount it.  It won't stand freely, and will have
a tendency to curl because the paper is scroll-fed.

Responding to some of the snipped bits in Matto's original message, it
sounds like we're potentially planning to have a large number of
banners.  In previous meetings we talked about 2, or maybe just 1 sign
per talk room, plus some general signage.  I have been thinking that the
number was ~7 large signs + misc.  I will print as much as a I can next
week, but at 40 minutes per 24x36" sign, the possibility of running out
of supplies and being temporarily blocked, and the fact that I still
have to work (I'll be babysitting the printer after-hours); it would be
helpful to know the relative priority order of the signs.  2 buckets:
must have/nice to have

Also, I'll need to check to see whether we have 11x17 available (recent
change in our office printers).  If I can't print those, perhaps someone
else can, or we can make a run to Kinkos.
