Looks purdy. But what's the difference between a "solvent" printer and another?

I guess since its so big, it prob uses ink tanks instead of cartridges. Is that the kind that can make like 4X6 foot prints. ?Hows the photo quality ? If it does good quality at that size I might throw some jobs your way. I can shoot as high as 9 mgp (3500-1600 roughly). I get people who want life size pics or big posters of property shots. I just had a 2 X 6 foot blowup done for $65.

A "solvent" printer uses UV inks and can be used for up to 5 years outside. You can print on banner, vinyl, billboards, etc... A inkjet printer which we also have (HP5000) uses DYE inks and have to be laminated if outside use is required. DYE can run if they get wet compared to UV which imbend themselves into the material.

No this printer uses CMYK Cartridges. There are two sets four (one Cyan, Magenta, Yellow, Black) for each side of the printer. We can print up to 62 3/4 wide max and how ever long. The quality is excellent we use the program ONYX to rip the prints. It automaticly will increase the DPI to 600 (it will add in the pixels to go from a 300 DPI print to a 600 DPI print.
We have not set up the pricing yet that will be done next week and the trianing I will have to go through is about 2 weeks starting next monday. Fun for me... haha

Also, if you look to the left you will see something covered in plastic... that is the "air scrubber" it cleans the air coming as it comes off the printers. Since "solvent" inks are very dangerous to breath . So if you don't hear form me in a week or so...something went wrong.... the over all lenght from end to end with the air scrubber attached is 114" the back all of my room is 120" so it will just fit in.

Also if you look at the picture the back wall of my room (the life size fish tank) was printed on our HP5000 DYE ink printer. If we were to reprint it on the Mimaki it would look 100x's better and last alot longer. Right now we had to print it with 5 panels (the HP5000 is a 43" printer) with the new one we can print it about 2 panels.

If you are referring to lamination. we have a gloss and a luster lam that we put onto prints. As of right now we do not have anything to laminate vinyl with. Like I said it will be about 2 weeks or so before we ever get this big boy up and running 100%.....I still have to do 2 weeks of training....

Yes I do. I am in Carpentersville IL store 97. Where is your Fastsigns located? We got a D-200 Route last year so we needed a new toy this year and it came today... :-) I am the Production manager of our store. Haha I run the Edge, Plotter, HP5000, D-200 Router, and now the Mimaki. So you can say that my room is going to be very tight, except for the router which we have in the back room away from my room and the production area.

How big is your store?

im in montgomeryville, PA. im also in production...but i dont have to do much with the printers or plotters becuase our designer takes care of all that. our store is pretty small like most are but we are expanding this month and doubling in size. (which is going to be GREAT)
