Comparing Roland eco-solvent VersaCamm with Mutoh eco-solvent Junior, Mutoh mild-solvent all compared with Encad VinylJet Print E-mail

Every day sign shop owners send an e-mail to This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it at FLAAR asking for an independent perspective on which entry-level eco-solvent printer to go for: Roland VersaCAMM SP 300, Mutoh Junior, or the newer mild-solvent Mimaki printer.

But the real question is more than which eco-solvent printer. Instead the more crucial question is a factual assessment of whether eco-solvent, mild-solvent, or lite-solvent (there are differences: Mimaki and Seiko ColorPainter 64s would be mild-solvent; you could perhaps call the Tiara Opal II a lite-solvent.

FLAAR Reports provide help, info, tips on how to decide on eco-solvent vs full solvent D.G.I., Infiniti, Seiko ColorPainter 64s, Mimaki JV-3, ColorSpan 72s Gator and Gandinnovations JETi.

Since there is no other source of reliable factual information (except people trying to sell you one brand or another), we felt it would be useful if FLAAR could also cover solvent and eco-solvent printers. Our last six years we have dedicated ourselves primarily to aqueous-based inks. So from summer 2004 onwards we will cover eco-solvent, mild-solvent, lite-solvent, and full-solvent ink printers with as much dedication as we already cover Epson, Canon, Encad, HP, and all the other aqueous-based wide format printers (with over 100 FLAAR Reports and countless pages on the Internet).

But rather than add another umteen pages to our web sites, we have concentrated our experience into a new series of publications in PDF format on eco-solvent ink printers.

The “Preview” of the Series is free; you can download the Eco-Solvent Preview at no cost. It lists all the new titles and indicates the highlights of each report. You can subsequently obtain the entire series at substantial discount.

Even if you seek only information on, say, the Mutoh Junior, you really ought to get your hands on the entire series of FLAAR Reports.
