What is the best(if not also ,most economical)way to print 8 x 10 image transfer? DaylabII or is it posible to print with a standard enlarger? Any ideas?

In both cases you need 8x10 Polaroid processor and film holder. If you already have a darkroom and an enlarger you should try it. One advantage of working with an enlarger is that you are not limited to using 35 mm slides as in the case of a slide printer. You can also selectively dodge and burn areas of the print to increase shadow and highlight detail, and you have better ability to crop your image.

The enlarger projection-printing method is covered in Kathleen Carr's book.
