New! HP Latex Series Master Class with Timothy Mitchell

Unlike the monthly Latex Academy, this master class will take an in-depth look at HP’s innovative new latex printers. Mitchell will be hosting the event live from the HP Demo Center in Alpharetta, Ga., giving you a chance to see the new printers in action as he prints on various media types and shows you the impact the new white ink can have on your images.

Topics Covered:

Best Practices – Autoloading, manual loading, and when to use the new Media Saver or when to use the take-up reel.

Media Types – Discussions about the various media options as well as ideal choices for mechanical settings and preset selections.

White Ink – Because white ink is new to many people, Mitchell will go through Onyx, Illustrator, and Photoshop, to show you how to create printer and software presets to get results quickly.

Accessories – The new latex printers offer a full subset of accessories, learn when and how you can, and should, use them.

Specialty Applications – The 700 and 800 are going to give you an entirely new world of specialty applications. Mitchell will show you a few – including paper and polycarbonates – that run exceptionally well on the 700/800.

Other topics include speeds and feeds, temperature settings, presets, and color management. If you are already using latex technology or if you are checking it out for the first time, you won’t want to miss the chance to see what these state-of-the-art printers can do. As always, Mitchell will take your questions at the end of the session.

Don’t wait, space is limited for the inaugural class, so register today. If you have questions, contact a LexJet printer specialist at 800-453-9538 or visit our HP Latex Resource page for more information.
