Hewlett Packard Designjet 130NR



The Hewlett Packard Designjet 130NR
is a large-format 6-ink printer which creates fade-resistant, photo-quality images with consistent colors for professional photos, and prints. It uses the HP Vivera 84/85 high-stability, dye-based inkset with a high d-max and is designed especially for professional photography applications.

According to research by Wilhelm Imaging Research, the leading 3rd party researcher into archival standards in the printing industry, the inks used have proven to have a very high permanence rating when used with the HP photo papers (both gloss and satin), which we use. They concluded that these prints may be displayed indoors under glass for 82 years before noticeable fading and staining will occur.

We look forward to making this new technology available to companies who want to create high quality photographic print exhibits
