    Any of the owners of the HP Latex Printer on here used it?

    What are your opinions if so.

    I have used it twice so far with no complaints. Liked it much better than the Oracal we were using previously.

    We have had the L25500 for about 3 months, and hands down over HP, Oracal and 3M is the new 1005EZRS from Avery, And I used to "HATE" Avery. But this stuff prints brilliantly and goes on like no other...M*

    Yeah we were the same a few years back with solvent printing banner stock problems with head strike & SAV with imperfections / joins in full rolls etc

    JC we are yet to sample the HP products but from what I have seen they are more expensive & I hate to be pigeon holed to using their stock ..... with the current lamination problems we are experiencing I will be talking to our distributor next week & sampling some HP SAV amongst others.

    Compare the HP w/air egress to Oracal 3951 w/Rapid air. They seem to be suspiciously similar, if you know what I mean. Kind of like Roland's Wrap material and avery Supercast EZRS. Hmmmmm.......

    There's only 3 companies who have the capability of doing air release in material. 3M, Avery, Oracle. Any other Air release products is done by 1 of these 3 companies. Just an FYI.
