HP DesignJet 5000
The HP DesignJet 5000 changed the industry upon its release, revolutionizing what a large-format printer could be. Not only was it a workhorse, but it also added high speed and photo-realistic quality while reducing the banding that was common at the time. Most importantly, the HP 5000 was among the first to include UV pigmented inks, which not only produced stunning color, but also had stability and longevity ratings of more than 150 years in the harshest conditions indoors and out. With so many wonderful qualities, it’s no wonder ColorZone still depends on this impressive machine.

Mimaki JF-1631
ColorZone was the first imaging and exhibits firm in California to purchase the Mimaki JF-1631, and we couldn’t be happier. It prints directly on large, rigid substrates with brilliant color, and unlike other large-format flatbeds it includes white ink. That allows us to print bright, vibrant color even on transparent and colored media, creating incredible design opportunities. In all it includes 8 colored UV curable inks, including a clear liquid for a high-gloss finish that locks in amazing color.

Standard Resolution: 600 dpi
Max Resolution: 1200dpi
Max Speed at 600 dpi: 18.4 sq m/hr
