The University of Scranton Printing and Mailing Services recently upgraded its wide-format capabilities with a new 44" HP DesignJet Z9⁺. Compared to the seven-year-old HP Designjet Z5400 it replaced, images are much sharper and brighter, thanks to the new printer’s nine ink colors. It’s also much faster and includes a vertical cut feature. It can apply a clear gloss coating to protect images exposed to the weather.
The in-plant has been using the DesignJet Z9⁺ to print directional signage mounted on foamboard, retractable banners, and lots of posters, including posters on satin cloth that faculty members take to conferences.
“This summer we will be working on lots of retractable banners for Admissions: 100 small tabletop banners, 25 midsize tabletop banners, and then about 15 floor size banners,” says Director Valarie Clark.
