    Question Life span of a print from an HP Latex 560

    We are printing 2nd surface on clear Arlon 4500G, backed with white vinyl, mounted to plexi. The question is, how long will this print last outside with lots of sunlight? We need it to last years.

    HP DesignJet z6810

    Brief question.... am I crazy/missing something, or is this just a design flaw in this printer? When a cartridge runs out of ink mid-job, can the z6810 really not pick up where it left off, as its predecessor (the z6100) did? This is so ridiculous. When a cartridge runs out, I can no longer just...

    How Low Do You Let Your Inks Get?

    Hey all. I've been wondering how far I can push my ink cartridges. I'm using HP Latex 310, and the cartridges are 775 ml. I was told by my sales rep to replace inks as soon as the machine says they're low, which usually happens around 100ml. This seems kind of insane to replace such a huge...

    Hey there! I own a Mimaki CJV150 with SS21 ink for 2 years now and I'm willing to replace this OEM SS21 with Bordeaux MS33 in order to stop losing money with ink.

    Need Help Ink smudging

    Any ideas what causes the ink on a vinyl print to smudge when using the squeegee? I doubt that its too much force with the squeegee as it did not happen before? Could it be the material, ink or printer heater settings or something else?

    Hi, Can I ask where may be the cheapest place to buy ink for our Mimaki 3042FX ? It's costing us a fortune replacing ink cartridges that are only half empty when they hit their expiry date. Thanks : )

    IJC257 changeover

    Greetings everyone, We decided to make the changeover from IJC256 to IJC257. The Application Bulletin here seems to indicate that we don't need to perform the "short flush," which is a process managed by the printer. Instead, my understanding is that it just needs to have a "manual...

    Epson GS3 Inks PRICE HIKE (for S40600, S60600, S80600)

    I purchased the Epson S40600 four months ago and I was happy with it until the price hike on the inks. Epson increased the price of their GS3 inks for no reason at all, no formula improvement, just price gouging. I suggest going with a printer that has cheaper inks and the option for third party...
