    Does anyone have pix of wraps they've done with an HP Latex Printer? I'm curious and considering going that route next. JUST pics of such wraps please. I don't need peoples opinions on wether or not I should go that route or the problems with latex...or blah blah. Just address the request of the thread please and thank you kindly.

    Go to youtube and punch in "latex vehicle wrap" and it will give you a few videos of people wrapping with it. HP has a Wrap Vinyl they sell and I know it works well so I know people are doing it.

    To be honest Grimco has the best price for 3M even though I compete with them they will be able to get you a better cost then I can ONLY ON 3M though lol. If I dont have the best deal I am more than happy to let you know where to get it.

    Back to the OP...

    The Latex ink is a lot more forgiving on bumpers and areas I need the stretch. It does not look desaturated when stretched.

    I also don't have to wait on overlam, so I can do a full box truck wrap and have it back to the customer same day.

    I will post some pics when I get a minute.

    Our wrap pics look no different with our HP latex over the Roland I just sold. Buy it for zero outgassing & saving a day + of curing. Black prints install as nice as unprinted vinyl.
