Last week, LexJet sent a group of its customer specialists to Alpharetta, Ga., home of the HP Graphic Arts Experience Center, to receive more in-depth and hands-on training on HP’s line of Latex printers, including the Latex 210 61″ Printer, Latex 260 61″ Printer and Latex 280 104″ Printer.

HP Latex Academy with LexJetThe crew was also charged with finding out if HP’s Latex Academy is good use of your time if you either own an HP Latex printer or are interested in procuring one for print production. The overwhelming response from the LexJeters who attended was a resounding, “Yes!”

Joe Pudlo, one of the LexJet customer specialists who attended said: “Latex training consisted of both classroom and hands-on applications. Our trainer was extremely thorough and knowledgeable; he has tested a majority of inkjet media on the market.”
