    Inkjet Options

    I like Xerox -- Wide, fast, high res 1200 dpi and easy to integrate. They are new to the market, but match better with commercial print applications.

If you production is going to grow, stay away from the "low end" on the wide format printers. If you are going strictly UV, give the guys at Vanguard or Fluid Color a call on the wide format...

    office line head inkjet expected life

    Both are thermal heads and they are not as durable as piezo heads made companies like Xerox, Fuji Kyocera etc. The page wide was developed initially for desktop machines and they were really not for production.
