What we print
The material on which we print is very important and everyone who knows at least a little about printing and large format printing will say so. Bad paper can cause that our product will not behave as it should be, and colors or invoices will make reading and receiving difficult, and yet, in print, it is precisely what this is all about.
When choosing the type of paint carrier, it is worth following the proven solutions, or relying on the advice of the company or the printing plant, because they are in the trade? and they will definitely offer something worth attention and meet our requirements.
Internet printing is the latest trend on the market and it is not surprising that users - more modern - are eager to use such printers. The advantages of this solution are certainly clear and predetermined conditions of printing, checking the files by the script and the speed of implementation.
Like every innovation, it also has its drawbacks - we can not check the printout but it is sent to us, which limits the possibilities of complaint. Sometimes software errors occur. However, the worst drawback is the lack of individuality in such online orders, and this is something that is valued by not one regular customer.
Shortly about solid ink printers
Solid ink printers, also known as phase-change printers, are a type of thermal transfer printer. They use solid sticks of CMYK-coloured ink, similar in consistency to candle wax, which are melted and fed into a piezo crystal operated print-head. The printhead sprays the ink on a rotating, oil coated drum. The paper then passes over the print drum, at which time the image is immediately transferred, or transfixed, to the page. Solid ink printers are most commonly used as colour office printers, and are excellent at printing on transparencies and other non-porous media. Solid ink printers can produce excellent results. Acquisition and operating costs are similar to laser printers. Drawbacks of the technology include high energy consumption and long warm-up times from a cold state. Also, some users complain that the resulting prints are difficult to write on, as the wax tends to repel inks from pens, and are difficult to feed through automatic document feeders, but these traits have been significantly reduced in later models. In addition, this type of printer is only available from one manufacturer, Xerox, manufactured as part of their Xerox Phaser office printer line. Previously, solid ink printers were manufactured by Tektronix, but Tek sold the printing business to Xerox in 2001.
