Going Green with Eco-Solvent Inks? Here Are 20 Must-Have Products

We know the environment is top-of-mind for many print shops, and that’s why you’re transitioning to eco-solvent ink technology, such as Epson’s UltraChrome GS3 ink with GreenGuard Gold certification. To help you pair your printer with the right products, we’ve compiled a list of 20 must-have compatible media options, available at LexJet. Check out these products for art and photo, walls, signage and multipurpose applications:

Art & Photo

Eco-solvent options for canvas and photo printing is especially attractive because it eliminates the need for additional coating production that’s required for aqueous printing. These best sellers do just that while offering excellent image reproduction, as well:

Streamlining Art Reproduction with the Epson S80600

No matter what size the print facility, efficient workflow, speed and quality are always top of mind. The same holds true for Josh King, who runs Sacramento Giclee, a five-person shop that works primarily with artists who need scanning, reproduction and custom framing of their artwork.

Sacramento Giclee reproduced an acrylic painting for a canvas wrap.

“We’re a custom print shop, and we do everything from capturing originals to printing, installing, shipping and framing,” King says. “We also do some big jobs for hospitality or healthcare where we might do 200 prints.”

As his business has grown, King has explored new ways to speed up production while maintaining quality, and last September he decided to pair an Epson SureColor S80600 64-inch solvent printer with the two aqueous printers in his operation.

Hear What Users Are Saying About the New Epson S-Series Printers

Earlier this year, Epson released a new line of SureColor S-Series printers with re-engineered imaging technology and updated inks. The Epson customer testimonials below give insight on how these new printers are delivering exceptional quality while improving production time.

Tracy Eschenbrenner, owner of Sunset Signs in Anaheim, Calif., was looking for a new printer that was efficient, cost effective and didn’t sacrifice quality for speed. He opted for the Epson SureColor S30675.

“Before we got the Epson, we were constantly behind the 8-ball to get the job done,” Eschenbrenner says. “So the jobs are [now] going out same day, whereas before they were taking one or maybe two days. All the way around, it’s been a faster process, which obviously makes us more profitable.”

Lorin Young, owner of Design Dynamics in Orange County, Calif., needed a machine to add versatility to his quickly growing business. With more demand for clear vinyl projects, the ability to use white ink on his new Epson SureColor S50675 was a “pleasant surprise.”

“We use white ink to create more pop,” Young says. “We put white on a little heavier, then put a color on top of the white, which creates a really dynamic look. With the new S50, we’re providing better quality, and doing it more productively.”


Monica Denosta, president and CEO of Picture It On Canvas in San Diego, Calif., says the reliability of the Epson SureColor S70675 is one of its greatest benefits. “It runs 24-hours a day, seven days a week and it’s the most reliable printer we’ve ever had,” she says.

All three printers come with an instant $2,000 rebate through the end of July. Check our Rebates page each month for new savings options.
