Inkjet Tip: Head Capping is Worth More than a Spit

If you intend to do a significant amount of mono printing on your inkjet device, check to see if the device caps the C,M,Y print heads when not in use.

Run test jobs and also check how this information is reported on estimating systems since they will be different.

Shift Happens- Machine Speeds Affect Print Quality

Inkjet Tip of the Week – Use Ink Wisely

Inkjet Tip of the Week – Use Ink Wisely. Using a standard, default profile could be costing you money. When creating custom profiles, be sure to print profiling patch charts with different TAC settings such as 260, 240 and 220,  for high, medium and low ink usage options. Print efficiently and economically based on the customer’s needs, not default settings.
