there is a new HP latex printer that is not a solvent printer but claims the durability and colour-fastness of a solvent printer. there's a 2,50m machine available now, with a 1,60m coming up by the end of this year. if you got one nearby, check it out. i need to check it out too, cuz it seems like a good alternative for the green-oriented sign makers. like, you know, "earth lovers" - those who shag soil.
