New wide format inks and software from HP

HP has launched an array of new inks and software for its wide format printers at the SGIA show in Orlando, US. This includes the HP Scitex FB7500/7600 Enhanced Color Pack. These new inks can add spot or full varnish, create embossed text and images, and expand the colour gamut.
HP has gained the 3M MCS warranty for its Latex 881 inks and Latex 3000 printer. HP has also updated its cloud-based WallArt Solution and includes a feature to create canvas projects. This lets printers produce customised interior décor applications, including mounted canvas prints and wallcoverings. HP has also launched two new canvas substrates, HP Premium Satin Canvas and HP Everyday Satin Canvas, producing vivid colours, sharp details and broadening the colour gamut.
In addition, HP has updated its SmartStream Production Analyzer with improvements to the job dashboard and job summary report, as well as the ability to set productivity targets.

You can license the articles from Printing and Manufacturing Journal to reproduce in other publications. I generally charge around £150 per article but I’m open to discussing this for each title, particularly for publishers that want to use multiple stories. I can provide high res versions of images for print publications.

I’m used to working with overseas publishers and am registered for VAT with the UK’s HMRC tax authority but obviously won’t charge VAT to companies outside the UK. You can find further details and a licensing form from this page, or just contact me directly here.
