I ordered a canvas cover for my new 3800 from this company- http://www.digitaldeckcovers.com/ It arrived today and fits well. It covers the printer with the rear paper feeder attached. It was $39.95 and can be ordered in a choice of colors and materials. My canvas one folds to a small size so it's not a pain to store when not in use.

Mine came with a big plastic cover, too. It was big!! I don't think I would want to keep using it but if it works for you then why not?

I really posted this info for people who might search the forums for printer covers. I was put off by the $80 price I found for some covers.

Shoot....I just received my Epson 4880 and thought I could get away with a reasonable priced cover; unfortunately I just checked out the site you provided and they want $80 for the 4880 cover.....      No way!

I think I'm going to head over to Joann Fabrics and Crafts and see if I can't by some black canvas and make one myself (I guess).

Cheers...

They are cheaper than B&H but I don't see why you couldn't make one. They are pretty simple.

Try CompuCover.com. I have gotten several printer and monitor covers from them.
Very reasonable price, excellent quality and fast delivery. Hard to beat.

I looked at them also. But I wanted a canvas cover. My cats sometimes walk across my printer when they know I'm not looking and I thought the canvas might offer more protection. I think compucover is a good option.

Now suddenly I feel incredibly "cheap" using a cloth sheet thrown over my 9800.....  

On my way to Home Depot or Osh......

I'm giving Digital Deck a try, but so far I can't say I'm very happy.  I placed my order for an Epson 2200 cover on April 19th, my credit card was billed immediately, and yet as of May 4 I haven't received notice that the cover has shipped.  Two calls, one leaving a polite voice-mail inquiry, have gone unanswered.

I'll second the recommendation for CCWear. I've bought two covers from them and they were reasonably priced and well made.

To my surprise the cover arrived USPS today, ten business days after I placed the order (I'm in NY and Digital Deck is in LA).  The cover looks good.  All in all I can recommend them, but with some hesitation.  As mentioned before, my phone calls and voice mail were not answered, and I was given no notice that the order had shipped.   If you need a good cover and aren't in a rush, you might consider giving them a try.

Scott, I'm glad it worked out for you. I got a speedy answer to an email I sent before buying. Doesn't sound like consistent service. I am pleased with my cover. It fits well and goes on and off easily.

Cotton covers by CCWear dont create static like vinnyl or other material.
Plus, they're beautifully made.

What are the recommendations for Epson for leaving the printer on or turning it off during non-usage.  Can the cover be kept on if the printer is still on (in non-use periods); any issues with heat dissapation etc.?

Cheers....

I don't know for Epson : I have a Z3100 with no heat whatsoever when idle.

I would say the same with my 3800. It always feels very cool and I leave my printer on most of the time. My cover is canvas so it might be different with vinyl covers.
