The changing face of large format printing – CWE Solutions
There’s so much to be mindful of these days as a growing business. From SMEs to huge corporations, more businesses are taking stock of their impact on the world around them and they are being careful about where they spend the money. Businesses these days are focusing on streamlining the whole process and that’s very true of graphic design and large format printing. The industry is changing fast with every new discovery and technology.
Environmentally friendly inks
Environmental issues are one of the greatest problems facing our world today. With society growing faster, people and businesses are having a huge impact on the environment around them and it’s becoming urgent for them to look towards sustainable alternatives, including low-impact solutions.
Latex inks are the latest in the line of eco-friendly printing solutions for businesses. Latex inks bring a lot to the table for low-impact inks for large format printers. Water-based inks are biodegradable; they also have the benefit of being non-hazardous and non-toxic, which stops harmful impact on the environment. When used in conjunction with recyclable paper or reusable materials, this gives a serious reduction in the damage caused in the environment.
There isn’t even a cost worry involved in using these low-solvent inks. As they are water-based, the latex inks are low-cost and extremely cost-effective for businesses, which immediately removes the barrier of spiralling costs for the business.
Latex inks can be used with new large formats such as HP Designjet L65500.
HP Designjet L65500 is a versatile and powerful digital printer that delivers high print speeds that will increase the productivity of your business’ printing facilities. It works incredibly well because it has a six-ink system that can produce up to 104-inch applications.
L65500 is fully compatible with low-maintenance, low-cost, water-based HP Latex Inks and its quality is uncompromised; outdoor media printed with this large format printer can last up to three years. There’s no special ventilation required, which means that this can be integrated into an office space rather than being separated out.
There’s no daily maintenance required with the HP Designjet L65500 and it comes with the HP Internal Print Server for an efficient and productive workflow; this means that L65500 is cost-effective the whole way through the process.
Reusable technologies are helping to smooth out the workflow to make it much more efficient across the spectrum. Magnetic media or ‘MagMedia’ is becoming hugely popular as a new way to display signage and graphics both indoors and out. These magnetic sheets are printed onto like normal graphics by large format printers, but they are much more efficient. MagMedia can be put up with ease when you’re running campaigns, offers or advertisements and you can customise them in any way you want.
The magnetic media sheets are offering a faster way of displaying graphics and they are starting to change the industry in a big way from the usual graphic solutions. They don’t lose attraction, they last and they are simple to use.
Large format printers and graphic designs are malleable; they change with the latest technological marvels and as they do, the industry gets better. The changing face of large format prints and graphics will always change as we learn more and improve on the technologies we have. The industry gets better with every new discovery and we are learning fast on how to improve the industry and our impact on the world around us.
