  • I’m looking for a digital printer that can print on wider banner than 13 inch.

    I’m looking for a digital printer that can print on wider banner than 13 inch. I would have to be able to print on paper more than 350 gsm. I don’t have a huge budget. Do you think it’s possible?

    Think your only option would be a wide format printer

      The big boy digital presses can print on larger sheets The HP Indigo says it can do 29" x 20" up to an 18pt.

      If it is just for one offs then I would see what wide format options are out there.

            I think MGI makes a press that will do wider than 13”. Wouldn’t have the first clue on reliability or anything though.

              You might be able to get a used iGen. When you said your budget wasn't that big, I would have thought you meant $5,000 - $10,000. With that being said I bet there are some iGen 3 or 4's floating around for about that number.

                What is the other dimension? You say wider then 13 x what? Really hard to advise without details. Do you need 20" x 70"? smaller? larger? Without details no one can give you real advise.

                  yeah, an iGen wouldn't be able to handle longer than 20.5" or I think 26" with an extended package. Also, I don't think they are thinking just 13" x ??....they need wider than 13" to start and then yeah, what is the length?

                    Max size on the iGen 5 is 14.33" x 26" (Not sure about the previous models - I think the iGen 4 was the first extended sheet size model?)

                    You'd also need the thick material add-on to print anything over 350gsm (although I've gotten away with heavier on ours). I've heard this add-on isn't worth the money - it's clunky and doesn't run great from what I've heard.


                    Without having any idea on the volume, I'd think with the heavy weight and oversize requirements a wide format machine would be the best bet.

                      To give you more details about my need. I looking for a size 20x30. I looking to print on 350 gsm paper or higher gsm. My annual volume is around 150 000 sheet.

                        Wide format or offset then with those specs. Although I feel like the volume is pretty high to produce with a standard wide format machine. Not sure though, I'm not big into that space.

                          That is a pretty big size for digital, not sure the iGens go that big. When I googled the HP indigo 3000 the max paper size is 29.5" x 20.8". I would contact HP and see if they have any used machines they are looking to offload with a service contract. Other then that if you are a print house already look for a trade printer and see what prices you get from them.

                            Maybe you could talk to Benny Landa.

                              I agree with this logic. I was thinking an Indigo would be the better path to look at as well. I think they offer the closest thing to an offset press as far as sheet size goes....at least total width and length.

                              As the twenty-first century opened, Koenig & Bauer had already anticipated the need for the coexistence of conventional and digital printing, and had begun to develop the technology that is today empowering offset printers to meet those challenges.
