    Looking for recommendations on Large Format printer

    Just as a couple notes of caution there: Most printers I've worked with have found that feature to not be all that beneficial. Mostly because it turns out that a good percentage of what they contour cut needs to be laminated first anyway, kind of defeating the purpose of that capability, but...

    Estimating the Ink Costs on a given wide format machine?

    Every top-line full-function RIP manufacturer has somewhere within it a capability to measure and report ink consumption. So you have that available to you provided you use a top-line RIP (ONYX, Caldera, Fiery, etc.) to run whatever printer(s) you buy. Some don't have a choice not to use a...

    Looking for recommendations on Large Format printer

    Myself, I wouldn't ask Signs101 anything. I'd also be pretty leery of making any decisions that affect the future of my business based on asking questions on the Internet. The problem is, in the case of a question like this, people are going to answer to reinforce their own decisions. How many...

    Well, you got me curious. I can't say for 100% certain that this is incorrect. I really tend to doubt it because if it was true, then it would follow that the doubled-dot resolutions would print at half speed. I've never seen that. Also if I'm following you, that would mean that the larger...

    I do color management and print process control for large and grand format printers. My company is Correct Color. I've been at this for 15 years, and in that time I've seen every combination there is of RIP's printers, media, etc. I've also helped numerous companies in situations just such as...

    Well, no... That was a joke. Actually, I go into this very subject at 14:20 in Part Two of Correct Color Management: The Movie. However... To start: Sure it is. Dots per inch means dots per inch, and that's precisely what it translates out to, since only at 100% coverage is a printhead only...

    Ohhhhh... I get what you're saying. I actually wrote out a reply and then it dawned on me. Only thing I'd say though is that when you print a sheet, and hold it in your hands and look at it, it was printed with a specific number of dots per inch. So from that standpoint, dpi is a correct term...

    I will say that one's pretty far into the weeds if you ask me. In fact I've never had a client even use the term addressability. I haven't even seen "perceived resolution" in years Day-to-day, what I see as the biggest offenders are dpi being used to describe ppi, and the term "profile" having...

    I agree completely, actually. In the videos, I mention that problem. Right now the top of my worst-offender list is the term "greyscale." You may not have seen this, but inkjet printhead and printer manufacturers have co-opted that term to mean multi-dot, calling multi-dot printheads...

    Gordo, Well, you caught me using shorthand... again, as I recall. But in the video, I define linearization as, "The process of bringing a printing device into a calibrated state to compensate for dot gain." And on the website, I describe G7 as follows, "What G7 actually is is a...

    Mimaki JFX500, ONYX and Raster Link problem

    Just for grins, I downloaded the driver and took a look. 1200F is for fixed dots, and 1200 is for multi-dot. I assume you're saying you have a profile made with the 1200F setting? I couldn't find anything anywhere regarding MAPS2, so that may be something that isn't included in the driver...

    No offense taken, I assure you. To answer: Well, if you do G7 correctly, it shouldn't necessarily decrease your gamut. What I meant when talking about leaving gamut on the table is that achieving maximum gamut is not part of the G7 routine. You can G7 a machine, but nothing in the process...

    Newbie in the Wide Format Industry

    Valerie, In quick answer to your question, everyone in the large format inkjet industry does step-and-repeat or imposition in the RIP. That's why the file has to be created in Illustrator, and it's also essential that your cut file layer use the color name that the RIP will recognize -- the...

    Mimaki JFX500, ONYX and Raster Link problem

    There could be any numbers of causes for this, some of them fixable, some of them not. First, for whatever reasons Mimaki has, they are determined to go to great lengths to persuade their clients to use Rasterlink, to the exclusion of all other RIP's. Myself, I think that's a huge mistake...

Sustainable Printing Goes Far Beyond Using FSC Certified or Recycled Paper
This informative paper on deinking: demand, principles, problems and solutions also explains why printing technologies are not all equally compatible with paper recycling systems; and why just a small fraction of printed material in the paper can cause difficulties.
