The Ixchel Museum of indigenous Maya weaving, textiles, and indigenous clothing is next door to the Museo Popol Vuh of Mayan art and archaeology. Both museums face each other, on the campus of the Universidad Francisco Marroquin, Zone 10, Guatemala City (6th Calle Final, which means the end of 6th Calle).

A wide format color inkjet printer is ideal for a museum. With such a large format printer you can reproduce your exhibit material. You can print signs, posters, and banners.

Here is the flatbed scanner that FLAAR uses to make all the wide format prints (you scan, then compose in Adobe Photoshop; Adobe PageMaker or QuarkXpress, then print from your desktop). We do all of this in-house in our own facility.
