West Chester, PA-based ANRO Inc. recently expanded its wide-format division with the installation of a new HP 60" latex printer. The HP Designjet L25500 – which uses HP Latex Inks – is recognized as one of the most versatile and eco-friendly solutions for wide-format signage and graphics.
Latex inks are water-based inks that combine the best characteristics of low and eco-solvent inks (lower cost, outdoor durability) with the benefits of water-based inks (high quality, odorless prints, reduced environmental impact). Latex inks are also incredibly versatile. They are ideal for a number of indoor and outdoor applications, such as wall coverings, window graphics, point-of-purchase signage, flags, outdoor banners, and backlit signs like those used in airports and theaters.
HP latex inks produce odorless prints that are ideal for sensitive indoor areas like hospitals, schools and restaurants. They emit virtually no VOCs, no ozone and no hazardous air pollutants. When printed on PVC-free substrates, such as Tyvek or HDPE, HP latex inks meet the GREENGUARD Children & Schools standard for low emitting products.
"Not only does our new HP printer provide our clients with a green solution for their signs & displays, but it also offers a unique combination of quality and durability," says ANRO CEO Jim Spinelli. "With the L2550, we can produce top-quality graphics that are incredibly durable and environmentally friendly at the same time. That kind of versatility is exactly what our clients are looking for."
And the clients definitely like what they're seeing. ANRO introduced its wide format division in 2009, and it has taken off. "The demand has been incredible," says Susan Larson, ANRO's Director of Corporate Marketing. "Wide format printing was a natural fit with the print, mail and marketing services we were already providing to our clients."
