They still do. It's a hassle to use (long warm-up time; weird paper size 
that requires tedious trimming; and it's often kept in a locked room for 
which the key isn't often available).

Meanwhile, our new museum space is going to have many more signs than 
the current space. I figure it makes sense for us to print our own signs 
at will. 11x17 is a good size because (as you noted) a lot of 
inexpensive printers can do it, and also because we can buy large 
quantities of 11x17 poster frames fairly cheap.
