David L. Zwang on Production Inkjet—The Next Wave: HP High Definition Nozzle Architecture:
your welcome... Production Inkjet adoption has ramped up as the technology and product offerings have started to catch up to more of the print market requirements. It's going to be very interesting over the next few years!
 

Thomas Lickert on Production Inkjet—The Next Wave: HP High Definition Nozzle Architecture:
David I find your articles about Production Inkjet fascinating. I want to thank you for connecting the dots in the Inkjet World. I appreciate your help. Thomas Lickert Simprint Tom@simprint.com
 

Phil Van Kirk on Frank on a Multi-Drop Approach To High Quality Inkjet Imagery:
cool news Frank. Thanks for sharing the history lesson, and for promoting good ideas. Good photo reproduction is a beautiful thing.
 

Robert Godwin on Kevin McVea, SVP at Strategic Content Imaging on the HP Indigo 10000 Platform:
Good job Kevin! I have found that the ink costs for heavy coverage on the HP web creates two problematic issues: drying time and ink costs. HP will need to address these issues if it wants to make a bigger dent in personalized mass market print
 

Margie Dana on How MarTech Impacts Commercial Printing Business:
Excellent article. I've been fascinated by martech for a while now, and I'm very glad you discussed it from the commercial printer's standpoint. I hope to see more pieces about this - thanks again!
 

Pete Basiliere on Print MIS and Data are NOT Boring:
Many things that people think are boring are actually integral to their business and personal lives. Tires, for example. I participate in high performance driving schools so I take my tires very seriously. Most people will buy whatever is on s
 

Gordon Pritchard on Frank on JC Penney and its Catalog:
While I think it's great for the printer - assuming it'll be a US printer - a "mail order catalog" or “web order catalog” or whatever as touch point or push effort to JC Penney's customers and prospects, IMHO, makes no economic or marketing sense. It
 

Dov Isaacs on Frank on JC Penney and its Catalog:
Do you really mean “mail order catalog” or perhaps more likely in terms of today's reality, a mailed “web order catalog?” I doubt whether you will ever see a resurgence of customers physically mailing orders to such companies any more. Such catalogs,
 

Cory Sawatzki on Lori Anderson, CEO at International Sign Association on Sign Expo 2015:
Great to see you Lori, and great show!
 

Cory Sawatzki on Gerardo Cerros of CMA Imaging Talks About Latest Developments in Color Measurement and Management:
Cary, flexing some color knowledge! Well done.
 

Eddy Hagen on Print’s Representation at the MarTech Conference:
"Print will continue to struggle to remain relevant without a concerted effort to make it easier to buy, easier to integrate, and easier to measure. Marketing is becoming more data-driven, results driven, and quota driven." This is indeed the big me
 

Henry Freedman on Frank on HP's High Definition Nozzle Architecture:
OK thanks Frank for parting comment here. The purchase of a press is a most significant investment for a printing plant as we all know. Most if not all manufacturers have demo centers that do press runs for comparison of their press with existing
 

Frank Romano on Frank on HP's High Definition Nozzle Architecture:
Oh Henry 1. “Shootoffs are a waste of time and money. They are just pissing contests that have little influence on what equipment printers buy. 2. Print buyers are the only folks who matter. They set the standard for quality by what they are wi
 

Roy Friedman on Frank on HP's High Definition Nozzle Architecture:
If we will take the discussion beyond one brand or the other, most of the shops out there are already heavily invested in offset equipment that can last for years. Most of the investment today are made by an existing print service provider, and it
 

Henry Freedman on Frank on HP's High Definition Nozzle Architecture:
Other comments here. So in the thread here Roy used HPs newest and largest press to compare. So I chose a new offset sheetfed to keep comparison even. NOTE we still get the under 10 minute color up and running benefits which are huge. Next, as
 

Henry Freedman on Frank on HP's High Definition Nozzle Architecture:
OK Frank since you feel that IJ presses today rival offset, why don't we do a color printing shootout video here between the new HP Web press of your choice and I will use an older offset press. You like typography so lets start with type and then mo
 

Frank Romano on Frank on HP's High Definition Nozzle Architecture:
Thank you Henry. We know that offset quality is great, but I have seen work from the HP presses, and even other digital presses, that rivals offset. Users are ordering 2nd and 3rd and 4th HP presses so they must be doing something right. And offset i
 

Henry Freedman on Frank on HP's High Definition Nozzle Architecture:
One other point Roy regarding your comparison to offset production. The offset press produces greater than twice the image quality than the T410 on wide range of high quality coated papers at a lower cost as well as a wider range of noncoated papers
 

Henry Freedman on Frank on HP's High Definition Nozzle Architecture:
Hello Roy, yes HP must go wide to get productivity since the speed is limited as I mentioned in my comment.
 

Roy Friedman on Frank on HP's High Definition Nozzle Architecture:
The HP T410 has a ~42" throat. It runs at up to 183 meters/min. It means that a 41" sheet is print a "wide" like most of the offset sheet fed press. If I got it right it means that the T410 is a ~15,000 impression (41" or 70x100cm) per hour pre
 

Henry Freedman on Frank on HP's High Definition Nozzle Architecture:
So HP pushes thermal ink jet to the limits with a process that increases in complexity to work around issues as time goes on. The smaller drops helps HP address issues they had at the first 600dpi writing they did since basically they had larger dro
 

Frank Romano on Frank on HP's High Definition Nozzle Architecture:
This technology will be applied the the HP Web Inkjet presses soon. It is also retrofittable.
 

James Olsen on Frank on HP's High Definition Nozzle Architecture:
Hi Frank: When and in what presses will this appear? Thanks Jim
 

Jennifer Matt on Web2Print Experts Launches All Inclusive Print Software Solution:
Scott - that is an awesome addition. I wanted to add a hand gesture (functionality built by our team in North Korea), that temporarily directed VistaPrint internet traffic to your website. Thumbs up. Traffic starts flowing, stop hand gesture te
 

Scott Burford on Web2Print Experts Launches All Inclusive Print Software Solution:
Great job! Just as a side note, imagine a sweaty Steve Ballmer prancing around on a stage delivering this new announcement. I probably need therapy just for suggesting that.
