With support for media up to 61 inches wide, the HP Designjet L26500 is a versatile inkjet printer for serious print shops. Its environmentally-friendly design promotes recycling of supplies and reduces hazardous fumes, and it can support a wide range of media such as textiles, vinyl, and even film. Its price tag is very high, and HP L26500 printer ink is equally expensive.
Double-sided printing is not a feature often included in wide-format models, but the L26500 can handle it, with automatic registration to line up the sides properly. The automatic cutter also reduces the need for manual intervention, and users can let prints drop to the floor or use the included basket. The print resolution is 1200 dpi, so prints are very sharp and detailed.
The machine itself is quite bulky, with a height of 54 inches and a footprint of 97x27.5 inches. With the Designjet L26500 printer ink installed, it weighs a hefty 445 pounds, but is relatively easy to move into position with a wheeled stand included. It supports a roll size from 23 to 61 inches wide, and a diameter up to 18 cm. The specialized inks are made from latex, so they are even acceptable for outdoor applications.
The inkjet system consists of six separate colors of HP L26500 ink cartridges. The inclusion of light cyan and light magenta helps to widen the color gamut, though the extra Designjet L26500 ink cartridges do add to the operating costs. Using compatible HP L26500 ink is an option for saving money compared to OEM supplies.
The purchase of the L26500 is a serious expenditure for any print shop, but it provides a lot of value, particularly in its wide range of media support. Workers will greatly appreciate its odorless operation, and its output quality is very impressive.
