Seattle's United print. signs. graphics. Installs First HP Latex R2000 Series Printer in Market
SEATTLE, Wash. — December 18, 2018 — United print. signs. graphics. has installed the first HP Latex R2000 Printer of its kind in the Pacific Northwest. The R2000 is a game-changing large format hybrid solution that offers rigid and flexible sign and display printing in one device. It represents a milestone in printing technology by coupling high productivity with revolutionary ink versatility and advanced workflow solutions.
The HP Latex R2000 uses water-based inks to achieve a vibrant color gamut and amazing white ink capability while retaining durability (greater scratch-resistance) and emits virtually no environmental toxins (reduced temperatures and zero smell). The ability to print on both rigid and flexible materials allows for higher accuracy with color portfolio settings when matching across mediums for a superior customer branding experience.
President Michael Barrett notes, "Two of the biggest reasons that we wanted to be part of the initial rollout on this amazing piece of equipment boil down to the 'green' factor and the incredible advancement in technology. This machine is very environmentally-friendly and allows us to achieve higher sustainability practices. This new generation technology dramatically expands our printable color gamut for our color-critical clients. These water-based inks are wonderful in that they achieve a super vibrant color and a white point that's so much brighter than any of the UV systems we looked at."
The HP Latex R2000 is the ultimate printing solution for large format applications involving retail displays, outdoor signage, banners, wall murals, vehicle wraps, and much more. As United enters its twentieth year in business, the emphasis on reinvesting in industry-leading technology is paramount to continued growth and unprecedented demand for large-format printing.
"Large format printing is one of the areas we've focused on for the past several years. The combination of the productivity and quality from this machine in contrast to the others we evaluated is what sealed the deal," says Barrett. "This machine allows us to increase our capacity to take on additional regional and national print campaigns without disrupting our ability to serve our larger contractual clients like the City of Seattle and King County as well as local small business owners, artists and nonprofit organizations. We can continue to evolve and expand our in-house services for years to come with cutting-edge printing equipment like the HP R2000."
