LexJet Replay: The Top Five Printer Introductions of 2021

This past year, LexJet had the opportunity to introduce some exciting new technology to the market. From the first HP Latex with white ink to the first aqueous printer with fluorescent ink, let’s take a look back at the top five printers to make a splash in 2021:

The Canon Colorado 1630 UVgel, is a 64-in roll-to-roll printer that offers outstanding productivity with fast output speed and no dry time, speeding up your workflow.

The new Canon Colorado 1630 is the smart investment choice for print service providers looking for a cost-effective solution to meet their current and future business needs. With speeds up to 1,195/sq.ft. per hour, PSPs can offer a quick turnaround on those last-minute, just-in-time orders.  Learn More

The Canon imagePROGRAF GP Series is the first aqueous printer to bring extra POP with fluorescent pink ink. These printers feature Canon’s unique Radiant Infusion, which layers the newly developed Fluorescent Pink Ink with other inks on the paper surface during printing creating bright and soft color reproduction.

Print service providers can create high-impact graphic posters, wall art, and custom pop art. Artists, retailers, and entertainment venues are just a few of the customers who frequently purchase tailored graphics with vivid neon and fluorescent colors. Learn More

The EFI Pro 30h is a 3.2-meter (126-in) printer with flatbed and roll-to-roll capabilities. It is an entry-level production printer that offers superior image quality, versatility, and productivity at a competitive price point and prints on a wide variety of substrates in a wide variety of applications.

The Pro 30h is designed for commercial printers, sign shops, and in-plant printers who would like to expand into high-value specialty substrates and popular applications such as wall coverings, décor, and signage, and print directly to rigid substrates. Learn More

Epson SureColor R5070L and R5070 are the first in Epson’s resin technology line. Designed to keep up with fast-paced print shops, they offer immediate lamination, user-replaceable PrecisionCore® printheads, and ultra-low-cost inks.

This 64-in roll-to-roll signage printer features multi-purpose resin ink and provides professional-quality wallpapers, fabrics, uncoated papers, and traditional signage at remarkable speeds. The SureColor R5070L has bulk ink capabilities with 3-liter tanks, while the R5070 offers 1.5-liter ink packs. Learn More

With the HP Latex 700, Latex 700W, Latex 800, and Latex 800W, HP completely reimagined its Latex portfolio. From the addition of white ink in the “W” series to the inclusion of recycled materials in the printer and recyclable outer ink cartridges, HP has improved the printer’s output and overall sustainability.

The 700/700W series use 1-liter inks and are ideal for PSPs using solvent, UV, and Latex who want to extend their applications to win high-value signage jobs with HP Latex printing.

The 800/800W series use 3-liter inks and are perfect for mid-to large-size PSPs using solvent, UV, and Latex who want to extend their applications to win high-value signage jobs with HP Latex printing. Learn More

The LexJet Experience: Bringing Applications to Life

The LexJet Experience was a success! Our open-house showcased equipment, RIP software and media applications for local customers. Representatives were on hand from Canon, EPSON and HP as well as GRAPHTEC, SignComp framing systems, Onyx and ImagePrint.

Set up on the third floor of the Sarasota, Fla. headquarters, the trade show-style event allowed LexJet customers the opportunity to discuss current technology, best practices and innovative applications with the vendors of their choice.

Vince Bejar, LexJet sales representative, had several customers in attendance. “They were excited about the opportunity to visit our office,” he says. “They enjoyed the hospitality and are looking forward to growing with our partnership.”

Timothy Mitchell, the resident expert in all things HP Latex, was available to discuss the best media to use with the latex printers, including his recent review of the new HP Prime Gloss Air GP.

With such an intimate setting, customers spent as much time as they needed with vendors. “I was happy about the way the customers engaged in conversations with everyone,” said HP Partner Business Manager, Frank DeMartino. “They had questions about specific applications for both the latex printers and the Z-series printers, and they wanted to learn more about the vertical trimmer on the Z9+.”

Craig Hellman, Senior Account Manager for Epson, agreed that customers were seeking solutions for unique applications. “There was a lot of interest in dye-sub printing,” Hellman said. “They want to know how to create promotional products, displays, signage and, of course, apparel.”

With Epson’s breadth of products, it wasn’t just the dye-sub applications that piqued their curiosity. “People are very interested in what the SureColor S-Series (solvent) printers can do. They asked about signage and display, but they also want to know about décor printing.”

As the day began winding down, everyone seemed to have the same question: “When are you going to do this again? This was a great learning experience.”

Given the positive feedback we’ve received, we look forward to doing another open house later this year. If you were in attendance, we’d love to hear from you. Please contact your LexJet sales representative at 800-453-9538, leave us a comment here on the blog, or visit our Facebook page.
