HP’s Newest Latex R1000 is Here!

The latest and greatest R Series by HP has been impressing the industry since the HP Latex R2000 was first announced in March of this year. Today, HP added the 64-inch HP Latex R1000 Printer to the line-up, and it is here! IT Supplies had the honor of receiving the first model (that is serial number 001!) installed in our showroom! 


The R1000 is an incredible machine and here are some of highlights:


  • Printing in white without waste: HP Latex White Ink delivers the glossiest white on transparent and colored media and achieves no waste between white print jobs. The removable HP Thermal Inkjet Printheads can be stored in an offline rotating chamber and automatic maintenance makes white like any other color, including automatic recirculation and nozzle checks. 

  • High image quality and vibrant colors: HP Thermal Inkjet Printheads and redesigned HP Latex Inks achieve vibrant color gamut that is wider than most flatbeds on the market.  These latex inks preserve the media gloss and feel while printing on rigid or roll (with optional roll to roll kit). 

  • Durability and versatility: HP Latex Overcoat adds durable and flexible water-based ink for high adhesion and scratch resistance while lower curing temperatures allow for wide range of rigid and roll media versatility.  This unit supports media widths up to 64 inches.  Rigid material can run up to 2 inches thick.

  • Productivity: The belt workflow enables customers to handle print peaks in-house and meet short deadlines with up to 614 square feet per hour with up to 150 lb rolls for flexible printing. 

  • Ease of use:  This printer supports advance features that helps prevent head crashes.  Automatic maintenance and smart vacuums make this printer easy to load and operate.

  • Reduced down time: The R1000 has affordable printheads that are user replaceable.  Stock printheads right on your shelf to prevent downtime.  A printhead replacement takes minutes and does not require any tools.  
We documented the delivery and installation of the R1000, take a look at the printer that is revolutionizing the print industry:



Print Advertising Revenue Predictions Are In!

Print advertising revenue preditctions are in, and the outlook is very good. The media research company, Borrell, is predicting that out-of-home advertising revenue will more than double by the year 2020 (increasing from $7.3 billion to $18.5 billion). They are expecting continued growth through the next 5 years. 

This is amazing news for sign shops and people looking to break into this section of the print industry. While digital advertising has increased tremendously, consumers are frustrated at the intrusion in their digital lives and seek aid from ad blockers to minimize the number of ads they experience online. This is putting printed advertising in an enviable position and providing big opportunities for print shops to maximize profits.
