Biggest Epson S-Series Savings Ever

If you’ve considered upgrading or adding eco-solvent printing to your operation, there’s no better time than now. Since Epson launched its S-Series eco-solvent printers in January 2016, the three machines have taken over the market as the state-of-the-art leader. Now through the end of 2017, Epson is offering up to $8,000 off an S-Series printer: The biggest savings ever on these models.

Through Dec. 31, 2017, take advantage of these special prices:

Epson S-Series S40600, 64-inch solvent printer with 4-color CMYK ink set. This entry-level eco-solvent printer and its Dual-Array PrecisionCore TFP Print Head were designed for high speeds with greater resistance to head strikes and banding as well as an all new dot precision for crisper prints.

Printer Review: Epson Solvent S-Series One Year Later

Last year I wrote a review describing my initial experience with the newest Epson Solvent SureColor S-Series printer, the S60600. You may recall that I could not find anything negative to write about it.

Well, I figured one year and hundreds of prints later is a good time to give everyone an update on these solvent printers. On our tech support floor, we run more than 25 different wide format machines. We typically use them to run profiles for each printer/product combination. There are times when we print on both the Epson S60600 and the Epson S80600 continuously five days straight. But the next month, we’ll only use the once or twice a week.

As a testing facility, we are a very odd user since we will have spells of not using a machine for some time, but that makes our situation prime for a review that is ideal to satisfy both types of users.
