Latex and Solvent Printer Comparison Tool

How many times have you typed the phrase “Which Solvent Printer is the best?” or “Should I use Latex or Solvent Ink?” or “Benefits to Latex Printers over Solvent Printers?” or “Latex ink printing vs solvent based ink printing?” into Google and then had to search through thousands of results? We understand that this list goes on and on and sometimes feels like their is no results, but wouldn’t it be amazing if someone could put all the information in one place and let you make your own decision?

That is exactly what we have done. We have compiled a list of some of the top Eco-Solvent wide format printers and the HP Latex models with the printing stats and price. You don’t have to worry about the information being skewed towards one model or another. We will let the printer information do all the talking for us.

Use our Latex and Solvent Printer Comparison tool and directly compare multiple wide format printer models so you can draw your own conclusions on which HP Latex and/or Solvent printer is the best. At Digital Media Warehouse we don’t hide any information from our customers and we always want them to make the most informed decision possible. With Latex and Solvent Printer Comparison tool, we are giving you the information up front and allowing you to see the results.

We have been in the industry for a while and over the years we have narrowed our focus onto, what we believe, are the best brands on the market. We carry HP Latex Printers and Mutoh ValueJet and XpertJet solvent printers, for the sole reason that we believe they are the best.

The HP Latex printer series is dominating the market due to eliminating the need for laminating your final product. When customers ask what they can do if their prints are fading, we always recommend upgrading to an HP Latex printer and that problem goes away. Not everyone wants to switch their outdoor printing over to Latex because they have always used solvent ink and that’s ok. We believe that Mutoh has the best Solvent Printer on the market and the new XpertJet printer series continues this trend. Whether you are looking for an HP Latex printer or a Mutoh Solvent printer we hope this tools helps narrow down your search. If this tool helps you choose either an HP Latex Printer or a Mutoh Solvent Printer please contact us through our live chat feature, contact us page, or through the phone number listed below.
