Quote from: Atlex.com on April 02, 2013, 05:32:21 pmBy the way, Solvent printers are NOT inkjet printers. Inkjet is the pigment (aqueous) printer series (R2000 and up to the 11880). Eco-Solvent and solvent are solvent based like Latex are close to solvent.http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Inkjet_printingSolvent printing does bake in the ink to the media that it's printed on for better duration of staying visible outdoors like someone else stated. Pigment (inkjet) can last about as long, but it's more used for keeping around indoor. Pictures that you carry around in your wallet are used on inkjet (aqueous) inks.The thread details would be correct for comparison. Solvent would be better for what others said regarding coating and unlaminated.Your cost between inks and the media would be fairly different and a less expensive as solvent based products are cheaper.Atlex.com

Quote from: hacimd on March 28, 2013, 02:35:29 pmWondering if anyone has had the chance to use Epson Solvent printers and what their thoughts were? How they would compare to Ink Jet Printers and would they make sense for Fine Art/Gallery production? Big leap in cost from Epson 9900, which I've been very happy with. What would the advantage of using a Solvent Printer? Has there been any word on upgrades from the 9900? It seems that Epson is putting their effort into these new solvent printers. Any information would be greatly appreciated. Thank you!
