My Sam' can only do 8x10.  I'm refering to ppi I guess.  I get confused bt they are almost the same.  When I scan a photo to be printed at sames I must 
scan at 300 otherwise the Fuji machine fails to open the file. 

At Wolf the machine was able to open 600 and 1200 but when I tried to 
operate at 1200 the machine ground to a halt.  The 1200 was 6M in size the 600
only 2M.

I was able to get white borders and matte finish at Wolf.  It looks as good
as their file processing.
