Seen for the first time in Italy, the HP Designjet L25500 Printer is designed for ease-of-use and available in 42- and 60-inch models. It utilises HP’s Latex Printing Technologies to deliver unrivalled versatility for a wide range of large format applications. Offering print service providers with print durability comparable to eco-solvent inks, the Designjet L25500 enables users to significantly reduce the impact of printing on the environment, and increase customer value.

The new HP printer is the ideal solution for small and medium digital print and sign shops, as well as copy shops and photo labs interested in offering an enhanced range of high impact indoor and outdoor applications and increasing their competitive advantage.

Other stand highlights include:

  • The HP Scitex FB950 Printer – a 2.5m hybrid UV printer providing consistent high-quality POP/POS, trade show and event signage on a wide range of rigid(1) or flexible media(2) at high speeds of up to 80m2/hr in billboard mode

All three printers are ideal for producing large format applications such as fine art prints, maps and renders. In addition, indoor and short-term outdoor banners can be produced on the wider 60” HP Designjet Z6100 Printer.
